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”.

Catharine Bramkamp's curator insight, October 9, 2013 6:38 PM

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!
