Rolled Stockings, Bees Knees, And All That Jazz

Rolled Stockings, Bees Knees, And All That Jazz | Sex History | Scoop.it

Yes, Virginia, like courtesans who rouged their breasts (or, more accurately, their areolas), flappers heightened the color of, and therefore the attention to, their knees. My guess is though, that they rouged post placement of their stockings.

Bare Digest The Naked Truth Magazine

Bare Digest The Naked Truth Magazine | Sex History | Scoop.it

Falling under the category of "Magazines ain't what they used to be" are the little Bare Digests.  All from 1953 to 1955, Bare was one of the "vest pocket" men's magazines small enough to sneak home.  They were also small enough to steal, which may be one reason they didn't last too long in the stores…but they packed a punch far larger than their size.

Gracie Passette's insight:

At first glance, with where the model's head is placed, I thought the title read "Barf".

Josephine Baker (1906-1975) - National Women's History Museum

Josephine Baker (1906-1975) - National Women's History Museum | Sex History | Scoop.it

A native of Missouri, Josephine Baker is remembered for her sultry and comedic stage routines that captivated audiences across the European continent as the Jazz Age unfolded in the United States. During World War II, however, the dancer and singer known as “Black Venus,” “Black Pearl,” or “Creole Goddess” performed a much more important role for her adopted country of France: that of undercover operative in the French Resistance.

 

In addition to serving as a sub-lieutenant in the Women’s Auxiliary of the French Air Force, Baker maintained an exhaustive performance schedule throughout the war, entertaining both French and American troops. These appearances in many of Europe’s wartime cities provided an excellent cover for the different covert activities she undertook on behalf of the Allied cause.
