My Sexy, Powerful Childhood Heroines

My Sexy, Powerful Childhood Heroines | Sex History | Scoop.it

So the other day I found myself musing about the women I looked up to in the TV shows, movies and music of the late 70s and early 80s – my childhood heroines and role models. And I came to a realization that almost all of them were either clad in skimpy bikini-style costumes or slinky leather.  Every single one of them embodied a certain style of in-your-face sexiness that was an essential part of their character.

 

While it’s pretty obvious that their costumes were purposefully designed to maximize sex appeal, what’s also interesting is that every one of these female characters have power and autonomy. These aren’t just sexy fembots, there to adorn the lives of men. These women were kickass, feminist heroines. And it made quite an impression on me.

From Bloomers to G-Strings: A History of Burlesque Underwear

From Bloomers to G-Strings: A History of Burlesque Underwear | Sex History | Scoop.it

As a burlesque performer or even an enthusiast you may have seen the old photos of Bettie Page in the “Guide for Strip-Teasers.” It was published in 1953 as a guide to show how much a stripper could reveal depending on what US. State she was in. Burlesque has changed a lot since 1953, most especially the underwear! Let’s take a journey through the ages from the beginnings of burlesque onwards, as a whole, to see how the last few layers of a showgirls costume have changed.

Rachel Mauer's curator insight, October 11, 2013 8:02 AM

A brief history of women's underwear that focuses on Burleque dancers and dancing for male pleasure. This history really focuses on underwear starting in the 1920s but has some key point on what changes from generation to generation. Though this focuses on stage performances, this article has value because what is on stage or in the limelight generally has a hand in the popularity of a piece;.

Looking Back At Vikki “The Back” Dougan (A Biography) | Sex History | Scoop.it

Collecting vintage smut, as I do, I know who Vikki Dougan is; but I’ve been surprised a number of times by both the lack of recognition this iconic beauty has and the lack of information about her. So, ever obsessed as usual, I set out to correct the situation.

Sexy 1951 sci-fi pulp mag!

Sexy 1951 sci-fi pulp mag! | Sex History | Scoop.it

I selected THRILLING WONDER STORIES June 1951 for two reasons: I loved the cover of the elegant gloved glamour girl posed as a kind of “muse” for rocket ships, and I also wanted a magazine that is almost exactly as old as I am. Given how publication schedules work, this issue was conceived probably right around the time I was. I was born in October 1951, and this magazine, dated June of the same year, was probably assembled in February or March.
