I love catching visions of kink in old movies. So I am so tickled to see a new coffee table book of images of just that! Damsels in distress, sci fi contraptions, Elvis getting flogged and captured vixens a plenty within these pages. Buy it from Amazon.com.
And here’s a little safe-for-work clip I recently stumble upon. He totally tricks her!

I like the girls who do,
I admire the girls who don’t,
I hate the girls who say they will,
But when the time comes they won’t.
But the girls I like the best of all,
And I think you’ll say I’m right,
Are the ones who say they never will —
But just for me they might.

Wow. Fuck Yeah, Queer Vintage spills over with lush images and little lessons on the beauty and pain of queer history. This is one of my all time favorite images of queer icon Marlene Dietrich. (via the queer librarian)

The medical/anatomical term for the genital organs is “pudendum.” A Latin word meaning “something to be ashamed of.”
Oh my. This may be a word assigned in the 1300s, but the medical world still has a lot of work to do when it comes to sexuality and health.

Sexology by Prof. Walling, (c) 1904
I just adore looking about at the sexual sciences of the past… This book is horrific and alarming with chapters like “The Womb And It’s Apendages” or “PART V: Masturbation, Female”.
They refer to masturbation as the act of IRRITATING THE VENERIAL REGION. They talk about how women become ugly because they have masturbated too much. I, myself, have proven this to not be true! I am well skilled when it comes to touching myself and I’m not too ugly.
Maybe I need to work even harder? Touch myself more. You know, in an effort to further prove my scientific findings.

The ladies are nude, so no one is allowed to take photos in the theater. All I could capture for you was this picture of Crazy Horse toilet and my toes. I’m classy, huh?
Le Crazy Horse has been producing burlesque since 1951. In their own words, they are, “…the most avant-garde cabaret in Paris celebrating the beauty, raw talent and personality of the sensual dancers in an unimitable, sophisticated and glamourous way.” The last time I was in Paris I had to go.
Lucky for me, I went on a quiet evening. There were only a few enraptured audience members to speak of. Me, my date and some Japanese men, traveling on business.
There is a documentary about Le Crazy Horse that premiered yesterday in New York City. I was lucky to be in the very first showing. The film is packed with stunning cinematography, portions of the stage show and lots of behind the scenes footage. the film shares just how much care goes into each production, the costume design, the auditions, the arguments, the long days and hard work of everyone involved.
At 2 hours and 20 minutes, the film is exhaustive. You feel both the beauty of the show but also the pain of producing it. But thank goodness they do. There is nothing in the world like Le Crazy Horse.
And on a side note, I just read that shoe designer Christian Louboutin has been doing design work for the show. Just one of many interesting minds they have pulled into the fold over the years.

Found on the banks of the river Thames, this old bronze token is considered to be both an early form of money (to be spent in Roman brothels) and, along with the printed word, an example of erotic art that could be easily shared. Read more.
