Then and Now: The Triple X Edition | National Coalition Against Censorship

Then and Now: The Triple X Edition | National Coalition Against Censorship | Sex History | Scoop.it

Sex. It’s impure, shameful, dirty, immoral, and… harmful? Taboos around sex have existed through the ages, so much so that the American legal system classifies obscene sexual material as a rare exception to First Amendment protection. We rely on judges to tell us if our sexual imagination is obscene or acceptable, and 41 years ago this month, the Supreme Court handed down a decision in Miller v. California which signaled a restrictive approach to free speech rights, and which compelled a group of First Amendment advocates to launch what became the National Coalition Against Censorship.

In EROS Magazine, July 1980 – Silent Porn Star | Sex History | Scoop.it

EROS magazine shows it’s genes, hearkening towards 1970s Penthouse style, and adequately fits the “men’s lifestyle porn” of that period. The articles are few and short, easy to read — while the photos are edgy and much more titillating than a Playboy ‘centerfold’ style of photo galleries.

Gracie Passette's insight:

Lots of images!

Paris 1984: The old lady made her painful way up the stairs to her tiny, squalid apartment. Although it was the summer, she was cold; she was always cold.


She doubted that she had long for this world, she’d been born with the century.


Everything she owned, mostly mementoes from the past, was kept in a battered tin trunk. She lived on charity now but once she had been wealthy and the most famous woman in France. Now, no-one knew her name.


Oh, the parties she’d attended. The acclaim...

Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel | Sex History | Scoop.it

Some might be a bit surprised to find that high fashion priestess Chanel would be listed here at Sex-Kitten.net, as a legend we admire. After all, her fashions have been described by many as 'boxy,' and of a 'practical classic style.' Her trademark suit-and-hat ensembles imply a couture for women who aspire to be ladies, not sex kittens.
