Take Another Gulp Of Porno Pulp

These illustrators knew something that seems to be forgotten today -- the art of suggestion...

...of evoking a state of mind...in a non-explicit way.

Today XXX-rated porn covers, with some exceptions, are too slick, too calculated, too "perfect" in their depictions of sexuality.

They have a sameness that homogenizes them all.

These beauties (the covers) stimulate with simplicity.

What's also refreshing here is the spirited glee of the participants.


Did someone say Tom of Finland?

The fella running into the garage in the background is not lacking for enthusiasm.

I don't think he's seen a breast before.

A new era of censorship in the US? -- or a Canadian version, perhaps?

There was a time when the covers of these books were censored in Canadian porn stores.

More gorgeous art.

Was these the good old days I keep hearing about?

If you were there, let us know.

Note the very thick door in the background. I guess no-one's leaving in a hurry.

Speaks for itself.
