The online magazine Jezebel got very excited about spanking this week. I expect most here will be more interested in the extensive illustrations and the compilation of movie clips. But it does make some interesting historical points about spanking and views on women. Here is how it opened: In early 1946, a woman from Carmel, […]


I was in the dentist of all places when I picked up a magazine with an article entitled, Memoirs of a Porn Star. The title was obviously tongue-in-cheek as the photograph was of a woman who looked like she might be in a care home in the 1970s. However, I was surprised to find out […]


There is something creepy as well as severe about this still of Barbara Rey from the 1973 movie Night of the Sorcerers. Busy week so posts are a bit slow, more soon.

The whole look and feel of the movie is retro 1960s and early 1970s psychedelic […]


There is a scene in the movie The Notorious Bettie Page where Gretchen Mol, in the role of Bettie, explains to a fan that he can only photograph her from behind. This is because of obscenity laws that prevent any hint of the pubic region or as my grandmother might have quaintly called it, the […]
