Being Sexy & Patriotic in The USA

In 1953, there was Metro Goldwyn Mayer cartoon short directed by Tex Avery about a “family” of airplanes. The animation was entitled Little Johnny Jet (soundtrack here) and it featured the Statue of Liberty giving a panty peep.

The Statue of Liberty isn’t the only one willing to be titillating in the name of her country. At some point in the 60s, Annette Moore wore a red, white, and blue mini-dress over some sheer panties and lifted her leg, offering a look at more than a handful of bush beneath those sheer panties. She sure gave the red-blooded American males something to fight for ~ even if there wasn’t a war.

If you’d like to play Lady Liberty, with a hint of Lady Libertine, you can use this pattern to knit your own red, white & blue mini-dress in time for the US holiday. Just add some sheer panties with authentic vintage style to complete the look. We’re giving you plenty of time to get knitting.

Saucy Saturday: Honoring Vintage Female Physiques

In honor of the Olympics, we’re honoring some athletic builds. The women in these vintage silver gelatin photographs from the Guccione Collection, are circa 1960. The first female bodybuilder is “Gertrude”; the second is “Bertha” ~ not sure if those are factual names or just what the Guccione estate dubbed the dames.

The Rest Was Just Imagination – An interview with Lydia Millet

BLVR: Your book Everyone’s Pretty is reportedly based on your time working with LFP. Could you talk about this influence in specific terms? The book doesn’t seem concerned with reporting on or analyzing the pornography industry.

LM: No, that was other people’s bailiwick. To me, mass-produced pornography is excruciatingly boring and the industry only a little less so. I was mostly interested in the styles of neurosis I met there.
