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.

The History Of Erotic Fiction

The History Of Erotic Fiction | Sex History | Scoop.it
The year was 1970 B.E.L.J. (Before E.L. James) and I was a freshman in high school. Midnight Cowboy (1969) had just become the only X-rated movie ever to win the Oscar for Best Picture, foreshadowing a decade of sexually bold expression.

If the medial claims about corsets weren’t true, if they were as exaggerated as the corseted female form, why? Sex, of course. (Part two of my research into the complicated history of corsets.)

Mammoth Ivory: Gay - Homosexual Netsukes | Sex History | Scoop.it

Netsuke or ‘Roots for fastening’ is a miniature yet exotic toggle, used in combination with the Obi to hold the Sagemono, a purse, pouch or an ‘Inro’ which is suspended by an elaborately carved Netsuke. To keep the Sagemono from slipping, the bead or Netsuke was used with the silken cord to keep it in place.

I'm no feminist, says Diana Rigg

I'm no feminist, says Diana Rigg | Sex History | Scoop.it

Her feisty Avengers alter-ego would have karate-kicked any man who dared patronise her.


But it appears that when it comes to equality of the sexes, Diana Rigg is much less strident in real life.


Despite being an icon to women’s rights campaigners since the Sixties, the 74-year-old actress has denied being a feminist, saying she likes it when a man displays old-fashioned courtesy.


...

Her character was hailed by feminists for her intelligence, independence and martial arts skills.


 

But Dame Diana denied she was a feminist icon, telling the Radio Times: ‘I was thought to be, but never was really.


 

‘I kept my mouth shut for the most part. It’s a question of economics. If you’re paid the same as a man, which now you are in this profession, you’re equal. If a man holds a door open for me or pulls back a chair so that this old bag can sit down, I’m delighted.

Julie d’Aubigny, Digital Art History Project

Julie d’Aubigny, Digital Art History Project | Sex History | Scoop.it

An assignment for Advanced Digital! We were supposed to make a gif portrait of a historical figure. I chose Julie d’Aubigny, 17th century swordsmaster and opera singer, responsible for the deaths of at least ten men in duels, and openly bisexual. After her lover was placed into a convent by the girl’s parents, d’Aubigny took the vows to enter the convent as a novice, then rescued her lover and set the convent on fire to cover their escape. Dang.

Heidi Fleiss Gives Tour Of A Swanky New Brothel

Heidi Fleiss Gives Tour Of A Swanky New Brothel | Sex History | Scoop.it

In this clip from "Oprah: Where Are They Now?", Heidi takes cameras inside this newly updated brothel, showing off recent renovations -- ever seen a $6,000 showerhead? -- and revealing plans for the continued renovations to make the brothel even more inviting. Of course, Heidi says, it's been a lot of work to get Dennis Hof's Love Ranch up to her standards.

 

"We bought it from a 200-year-old pimp," Heidi jokes in the clip. "Really, this [brothel] was very similar to a women's penitentiary. Even how you entered: You had to go through all these weird bars and buzzers, and someone's peering out the little peephole, scoping you up and down. It was so dark in here, you had to be escorted with a little flashlight down these hallways. And it was kind of scary... It was really a creepy feeling."
