Dance, Ballerina, Dance (Remembering Kathy Keeton; Gone To Soon & Forgotten Even Faster) | Sex History | Scoop.it

Who was Kathy Keeton? For starters, Keeton was Guccione’s longtime girlfriend and eventual wife. But she ought to be remembered for far more than that.

This woman ought to be among the largest names in feminism and publishing -- and an icon of the 1970s - 1980s.

Vintage Sleaze: Stockings for the Stars Willy Demond Stocking Maker and Legman for Hollywood.

Vintage Sleaze: Stockings for the Stars Willy Demond Stocking Maker and Legman for Hollywood. | Sex History | Scoop.it

Willy Demond.  Willy of Hollywood.  Stocking Maker to the Stars.  Willy the Stocking Man.  At one time, Willy had a virtual silky smooth monopoly...90 percent of the legs in Hollywood were Demond's. 

Willy Demond started making stockings around 1928.  He sold his first pair of fancy ones to Marilyn Miller for her role in "Sally" for nine dollars, according to the Miami News of June 11, 1948.  The story ran in gossiper Hedda Hopper's column.  He kept at it and got $2700 for a pair he made for June Haver.  Soon he was more than a stocking salesman…he was receiving credits as "movie hosiery designer" and in 1950 he was called "movie town hose specialist."  Of course this was all back in the day when gams WERE Hollywood.  All singing, but just as important, all dancing.  Legs.

Silent-Porn-Star: Fanny Brice's Baby Snooks

Silent-Porn-Star: Fanny Brice's Baby Snooks | Sex History | Scoop.it

Having a bratty girl-child mouth-off to her master may be cute, but underneath it all lies -- as sure as those ruffled panties -- the idea that she will eventually heel and heed her master. Or, if she does not, then he is less-than-a-man and plays cuckhold to her charms. Sure, all this can only make it funnier; but did they get it?

James Tiptree, Jr: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon - Sex~Kitten.net

James Tiptree, Jr: The Double Life of Alice B. Sheldon - Sex~Kitten.net | Sex History | Scoop.it

Gracie reviews the biography of Alice Bradley Sheldon, an amazing woman who wrote award winning science fiction under the pen name of James Tiptree, Jr. from 1967 to her death in 1987. (She also occasionally wrote under the pseudonym Raccoona Sheldon from 1974–77.)

 

Tiptree was most notable for breaking down the barriers between writing perceived as inherently "male" or "female." It wasn't until 1977 that folks discovered that James Tiptree, Jr. was a woman.

The Sublime Diane Webber

The Sublime Diane Webber | Sex History | Scoop.it

In the history of glamour photography, few women possessedthe combination of beauty, grace and wholesomeness that Diane Webber did. It was more than just her ample bosom (which featured incredibly perfect nipples) and dream-like hourglass figure. She was truly beautiful, with fetching, blue eyes and an overwhelming smile. She was hypnotic, even if she weren't naked! Though only 5' 2", and very curvaceous (listed by Playboy, Feb. 1956 at 39D-23-37, though she was four months pregnant at the time), she always appeared svelte and statuesque, thanks to her ballet dancer's agility and toned figure. She was photographed by some of the most famous names in glamour and nude photography, including Bunny Yeager, Peter Gowland and Russ Meyer, and was Playboy Magazine's Playmate of the Month in May 1955 and February 1956. According to several sources, she is not only the first model to show her pubic hair in Playboy, but also the first to be shown in a full-frontal nude pose.

The Smirnoff guide to seduction

The Smirnoff guide to seduction | Sex History | Scoop.it

Seventies junk advertising is no ordinary advertising. It was the specially made Smirnoff guide to seduction (Complete and unabridged!) – “Elements of all the best seductions as discovered by Cosmopolitan for Smirnoff” with six top models who “reveal their personal approaches to the art“. Isn’t it glorious? Best of all, this is the kind of ephemera which falls out of a magazine and we just throw away, but somehow this survived…

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star | Sex History | Scoop.it

The reason these glasses are so common are that many of them survived for the very same reason of needing to be hidden. Tucked away under the bar, in the booze cabinet, and other places children, in-laws, nosy neighbors, and even spouses were expected not to peer, just saved the life of the glasses. They remained unscathed, hidden in dusty places until the now-adult children discover them as part of the estate. (Of course, the true iconic bachelor, however real or unreal he may be, he may have used the glasses to the point of wearing the decals off them… If we can believe the legends of “the bachelor life”.

These aren't necessarily detective stories, but my mother remembers mentioning   detective novels as a literary genre in her Stanford 1955 English class, and was completely shut down.  Now there is a whole class at the university devoted to the dective novel.  She feels vindicated.  You never know the jewels you may find in the past!
