“I Don’t Know How Much Longer I Can Turn The Trick”

I don’t know how much longer I can turn the trick. It isn’t enough to be soft. You’ve got to be soft – and attractive. And I – I’m fading now.

Vivien Leigh as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951). It remains one of the greatest films of all time.

Mad Men Dressing In A Rush

At first glance, this vintage (1956, if the development date is to be believed) photograph of a group of men in a hurried rush to put on their pants may make you think “Gay!” But, as Silent Porn Star reminds us, not all intimate photos of couples or groups of men are of gay men. Not even when you add in the old “post coital” cigs of the past dealio; everyone was smoking back then, and for no particular reason.  Given the satin stripe down the leg of the trousers, I suspect the men are getting dressed in their tuxes for a wedding. (The man on the left, who has a very Don Draper quality, may be removing his less snazzy slacks.) But if you prefer to fantasize about this group of vintage beefcake gettin’ it on, or that there’s a naked lady laying in a bed who took the photo, or any other scenarios, don’t let me stop you!

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.
