Classic erotica "fun Stuff"

Well its not about serious photography or in depth discussion for collectors of classic and vintage erotica but a fun view of images not seen by many of years gone by. Yes some do send a spark to the sensory parts of one self but on the whole are just interesting to view and a escape from some of life's other more pressing issues.
Here are three of my favorites.

Allison alicyn Sanborn USA model

Allison aka Alicyn Sanborn career reached its peak in 1960. USA born .
Little is known other than a few pages in Fling magazine issue 4 1960.But still great classic photography. If you know more let us know.

Classic Naked girls and cars.

Guess what, it would have to be just about every mans dream. Well it has been the same since cars were thought of. Even in a previous post Bikes became the object with the near nude or naked model.If its got wheels put it with a naked girl, that erotic. The most entertaining part of cars and erotica is that it dates it beautifully. besides that you can be just looking at the car! the naked girl just happens to be in the same photo. Maybe thats what grandpa said to granny . I only get these photos for the cars.!

Classic erotic Butt, Bum and Ass. Oh and Rearend

If a male said that he would not marry a girl with a unattractive rear end the world would collapse but in saying that if a woman said she wouldn't marry a poor bald short man it would only raise a giggle.. So lets go back when Butt Bum ass and rear end meant something.Still one of the most experimented shots in photography of erotica.

What do men really like???

Popular science magazine Nature has published the results of study showing what part of female body looks most appealing to men.

The group of American natural scientists headed by Michel Hopkins discovered that the most appealing thing about women’s body is their waist, and the smaller the waist, the better.

"Cup Cake" Candy 1940-50's burlesque star.

USA Burlesque Queen Cupcake candy made the rounds during the post war years. She often toured with a troupe of other burlesque artists almost like a side show.This was common and continued right through to the 1960's. Now a side show tent full of naked woman is not quite politically correct.

The French post card..

Could this be the original French letter. This goes way way back in the history of erotica.
The French pioneered erotic photography, producing nude postcards that became the subject of an officer's letter to President Abraham Lincoln after they were found in the possession of U.S. troops, according to "An Underground Education" by Richard Zacks. "A Brief History of Postcards" explains, "A majority of the French nude postcards were called postcards because of the size. They were never meant to be postally sent. It was illegal".

Instead, nudes were marketed in a monthly magazine called the "La Beaute" that targeted artists looking for poses. Each issue contained 75 nude images which could be ordered by mail, in the form of postcards, hand-tinted or sepia toned. Street dealers, tobacco shops, and a variety of other vendors bought the photographs for resale to American tourists.

Usually a natural environment, the beach or field. maybe a forest. Other than naturalist being nude outdoors does is some peoples minds conjure up erotic thoughts.

Where did you get that Hat.!!!

Its the little things that make the difference, like the hairstyles, the props and other adornments.Hats and other assorted head wear appeared often especially during the late 19th century and early 20th century erotica.Later as the century progressed swim wear and other items that linked the era and fashion to the image emerged. but for today its hats. hats and hats.

Valentines Day!

Valentines day has been celebrated by giving cards for centuries. Erotic or insinuating erotic style cards were on the edge but were given. So for Valentines day here is just a few.

So...Happy Valentines .

I need a new Do.Hairstyles

Have you ever taken the time to look at hair on the head in these photographs...MMM well vintage erotica is unique in that way as hair styles of the ages are shown in a erotic way other than maybe general street wear of the times. Think about it. Erotica of the 1910's and 1920 especially highlighted the other aspects of the female form, like for example the hairstyle. In a series of photos from the same era you will note many and varied hairstyle appearing far more creative than today. It was also knowledge that this era of erotic imagery was also popular with the ladies also.
So next time if you are asked why are you looking at those photos again .. simply just reply and say..Its the hairstyles.

Just what is going on?

Erotica especially in the very early photographic days saw many creative poses to create a art type of feel to the image. Some of these are rather mysterious but in a humorous way. The postcard depicted here shows a maid and a monkey with a nude model. Beats me what was going through the mind of the creator of this erotic image.

Vintage butt again

There are legs, boobs and rear end. Butts, ass and plenty of it throughout the ages. Erotic photography often found a uniformity in shape that captured a interesting and erotic pose for the camera.
Good thing about it we will never run out of erotic nude photos on the matter.
