Looking Back At The Golden Age Of Porn

Looking Back At The Golden Age Of Porn | Sex History | Scoop.it

The first big porn star I interviewed was Veronica Hart around 1982. Very sexy, intelligent gal. This is primarily the 80s I’m talking about now: Vanessa Del Rio seemed the most like a movie star, with real presence. A very nice lady, too, although I only got to know her a little more in the late 90s when I interviewed her three times for a mag called Hot Salsa, as well as Leg Show and Juggs.

 

In the 80s met lots of the stars: Samantha Fox, Kelly Nichols, Susie Nero, Lisa De Leeuw, Joanna Storm, Cara Lott, Rene Summers, Kay Parker, Juliet Anderson, Christy Canyon, Buffy Davis, Nina Hartley, Ona Zee, Stephanie Rage, Veronica Vera, April West, Amber Lynn, and the guys of course — Jamie Gillis, Paul Thomas, Joey Silvera, Bobby Astyr, John Leslie, Ron Jeremy, Jerry Butler, George Payne...

Les beautés de Paris et de Hollywood

Les beautés de Paris et de Hollywood | Sex History | Scoop.it

Known successively by the names of "Paris-Hollywood" and "Les beautés de Paris et de Hollywood", the magazine achieved its final fame as "Les folies de Paris et de Hollywood". Little by little, and with the unexpected help from the Hays law on censorship, the magazine called in professional photographers from the French cinema who could provide images with more pizzaz. The film sets and the Parisian cabarets became their privileged shooting ground. We propose to you today the publications from 1953 to 1970, issue # 2 to # 538 plus 23 exceptional issues. More than 400 different issues.

Cover and scans from Bare magazine of June 1955

Cover and scans from Bare magazine of June 1955 | Sex History | Scoop.it

Bare promised readers the naked truth but didn’t go quite that far. It was a digest-sized men’s magazine, meaning that it was small enough to fit into a pocket and be carried about unseen. At least, that seemed to be the point. As a bonus, such publications were cheaper to print that standard sized magazines. Bare lasted just a few years, from 1953 to 1955, if the span of issues available online are an indication. You’ll notice its slogan was “The Naked Truth.” There was no nudity, but it did try to titillate. T

Vintage Smut Writer: The Exclusive Irv O. Neil Interview – Silent Porn Star

Vintage Smut Writer: The Exclusive Irv O. Neil Interview – Silent Porn Star | Sex History | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered — even dreamt — about what it would have been like to be working in the golden age of smut? I know I have. So I’m delighted to be able to dish with author Irv O. Neil.

 

...Eighth Avenue near Times Square was lined with streetwalkers, some of whom were really beautiful and sexy — amazing blondes in hot pants and platform shoes. I was smitten. Strip clubs, inexpensive massage parlors, hookers and dominatrixes advertising in Screw, porn movie theaters with live shows. The Melody Burlesque with the porn stars as feature dancers and where girls danced naked in your lap for a dollar — and with its infamous “Mardi Gras,” where customers lined up to eat out the dancers at a buck a lick (which I saw, but did not partake of — not appealing to my palate, you might say).

Gracie Passette's insight:

There's more smut name-dropping here in this first part of the interview than I could even dream of ~ I can dream of a lot ;)

Elvis at 21 delves into the puzzling nature of sex appeal, charisma, and intimacy | Sex History | Scoop.it

Before he was The King, Elvis Presley was a shy-but-charismatic young man who couldn't have known what curious life lay in store. The photography exhibition Elvis at 21, which opens at Fort Worth Museum of Science and History on May 25, presents an intimate window into the ineffability of fame, shot on the cusp of the young musician's international superstardom during the formative days of his enduring mythos.

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl | Sex History | Scoop.it

“So many women are left out of historical records,” Dahlsad says. “Men will say, ‘I want to show off what my father did; he deserves to shine. Someone should do a book on him!’ Daughters don’t do that about their moms to the same degree, so often things get thrown away. How many men would look at their archives say, ‘Just take it all to the dumpster’? Somebody would be saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’re George Petty. Put it back!’”
