When Beauty Is A Crime

When Beauty Is A Crime | Sex History | Scoop.it

I have a modest collection of vintage vanity items. (My collection and I have even been featured in Collectors News magazine.) And indeed, I’ve often wondered about the vast popularity of Rachel as a powder shade. I’d rather believed the hype that this particular shade was named after a popular actress at the time — but in Antique Personal Possessions, Silvia Druitt gives another possible reason...

Adult Backwash's Place In Sex Blogging History

Adult Backwash's Place In Sex Blogging History | Sex History | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, the brave Dangerous Lilly started a conversation about the history of sex blogging. Not long after that, GlamKitty (GK) (who did participate in the adult side of BW as a member of The Unholy Trinity) began waxing nostalgic about Backwash.com in general. It was these two conversations (one digital, one real world) which prompted me to get involved in the Backwash Reunion and agreeing to run Dark Wry Toast as a resurrection, of sorts, of Adult Backwash.


While I (impatiently) waited for GK to make her post, so that I wouldn’t have to repeat too much, I thought about the reasons Adult Backwash deserves to be remembered.

Of Mail Order Romance & Smut

Of Mail Order Romance & Smut | Sex History | Scoop.it

While it is possible that Ms. Brosmer (or Mrs. Weider) simply signed away rights to her name to some photographer, it is even more likely that she and her husband, body builder turned health and fitness king Joe Weider, simply saw money to be made. It was Brosmer, after all, who was the first model to get residuals every time her photo was published, so why shouldn’t she make money off selling her photos directly to the consumer?

In truth, many of the pinup models and burlesque performers ran their own side businesses, selling photographs, autographs, etc. Lily St. Cyr sold lingerie. Lynne O’Neill, The Original Garter Girl, not only had one of these businesses, but apparently kept quite a bit of the correspondence from fans.

Like the models and performers of today, these women...
