Femdom in a 1962 William Holden spy movie!

Femdom in a 1962 William Holden spy movie! | Sex History | Scoop.it

I’m a fan of the American actor William Holden, and last night I caught up with a 1962 film of his that I never saw before. The Counterfeit Traitor is the story of a American-born Swedish businessman (Holden) who becomes a spy for the Allies during World War 2, gathering information since as a neutral Swede he can travel back and forth to wartime Germany. It’s quite tense and exciting, and thoughtful about the nature of human responsibility as well.


But for the purposes of this blog, what stood out in the film for me was a scene where Holden was walking through the streets of Hamburg seeking his contact to help him get away from Germany and the Gestapo. It turns out that this contact is a dominatrix who sits in an open window advertising her stern services, played by the German actress Ingrid van Bergen.

WIFE SWAPPING - Sexology (Jan, 1959)

WIFE SWAPPING - Sexology (Jan, 1959) | Sex History | Scoop.it
Is it possible to combine desire for variety in sexual relations with the maintenance of a stable, happy marriage?

by Edward Dengrove, M.D.

FROM time to time one reads in the newspapers reports of cases such as that of the Percy Radfords and the George Hauses, of St. Louis, Missouri. These two couples, after a friendship of four months, decided they'd be happier married to each other's partners. At the time the swap was made, one couple had been wed for some seventeen years, and the other for almost five.

Accomplished as it was, through divorce and remarriage, this trade of spouses had legal sanction, as well as the attention of the press. But there is a lot more such swapping than the newspapers ever discover, because most of it exists on a sporadic basis and does not end in divorce and the remarriage of the alternate couples.

nterpreting Gender and Sexuality at Historic Sites


On a 2013 study trip to historic sites in and around Boston, hosted by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, participants were struck by the wide variety of ways they saw gender and sexuality interpreted--or in some cases, not interpreted at all. The trip prompted a number of interesting questions, which representatives from the Pew Center together with members and friends of the National Collaborative for Women's History Sites would now like to raise and discuss with other public historians. Toward that end, a session will explore these issues at the upcoming meeting of the National Council on Public History.


The questions to be considered there include: Where is the interpretation of gender and sexuality in 2013/2014? How do we move beyond the "just add women and stir" model of gender interpretation? How do we build on the progress made at a small number of historic sites now interpreting LGBT history? What is the future of gender and sexuality at historic sites?


Please take a moment to reflect on these questions, and help inform a larger discussion

Gloria Leonard, Publisher, Pornography Star and Advocate, Dies at 73

Gloria Leonard, Publisher, Pornography Star and Advocate, Dies at 73 | Sex History | Scoop.it

Ms. Leonard was a pornographic film star, and, later, a publisher of High Society magazine and a spokeswoman for the industry.


Gloria Leonard, who became a pornographic film star in her 30s and then a men’s magazine publisher and a prominent spokeswoman for her industry, died on Monday in Waimea, Hawaii. She was 73.


The cause was a stroke, her daughter, Robin Leonardi, said.

Ms. Leonard took a decidedly atypical path into pornographic movies in the 1970s, a time many in the industry now regard as its golden age, when films had story lines and actors enjoyed some crossover appeal with mainstream audiences. She was a divorced single mother, much older than most starlets and had held other jobs, including as a Wall Street broker and publicist.

Longform Reprints: Death of a Playmate by Teresa Carpenter

Longform Reprints: Death of a Playmate by Teresa Carpenter | Sex History | Scoop.it
Dorothy Stratten was the focus of the dreams and ambitions of three men. One killed her.


“The major reason that I’m … that we’re both sittin’ here,” says Hefner, “that I wanted to talk about it, is because there is still a great tendency … for this thing to fall into the classic cliché of ‘smalltown girl comes to Playboy, comes to Hollywood, life in the fast lane,’ and that was somehow related to her death. And that is not what really happened. A very sick guy saw his meal ticket and his connection to power, whatever, slipping away. And it was that that made him kill her.”
