If you don't love women, your time on this site will be wasted... I'm a right-handed, male baby-boomer INFJ Aquarian in the Chicago area. In my daytime persona, I am a writer/illustrator... I continue exploring the mysterious and mysteriously counterintuitve world of Dominance/submission (as a D/) --surely one of the most magical experiences of my life... I sometimes dabble in Kinbaku (specifically, Matanawa)... As you will see, I enjoy female-friendly pornography, especially when it's homemade. On rare occasion, I post reader submissions.... Hourglass figures make my heart race (honest to God: I think my pulse rate increases!)... I also like librarians, erotic art, the rust-turquoise-sand-white colors of Mexican paintings, ballerinas, summer, spanking, Jim Morrison, Billie Holiday, steampunk, fountain pens, Brian Wilson, Larado Taft, Edgar Allan Poe, Patti Smith, tennis, Bettie Page, Sophia Loren, and, of course, Marilyn. A naked woman on a bicycle? Pretty much an instant reblog and if you can successfully invoke the sense of smell in an erotic image, I will publicly declare you a genius... I consider Alfred Cheney Johnston the greatest photographer of women in the history of the medium... Occasionally, I alter pictures to improve their quality. Sorry if you don't like that; you should have done it yourself... Bogart & Bacall got it right --in their movies AND in their lives... I get up every morning and thank Bruce Springsteen for fulfilling the promise of his October 27, 1975 Time and Newsweek covers --beyond anyone's wildest hopes... I'm not overly enamored of Lucille Ball, Bette Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Madonna, Pink Floyd, tattoos, or piercings... I lament that my country has lost its way. When I was a young man, we had SO much promise. That we are unable to pass that on to our children is the overriding tragedy of my generation. In history books, the monstrous atrocities of VietNam and Watergate that my father's generation visited upon us will pale in comparison to the wasteland we are leaving our children... Finally and most importantly: The images here are decidedly NSFW so if you were born after this date in 1996, don't even THINK about viewing them. I'm serious about this: I don't make the rules but I do follow them. Besides, you have FAR better things to be doing with your adolescence than looking at sites like Dazzledent. Go start a revolution.

“We found an old hotel in downtown L.A. and went inside to shoot in the lobby, but the guy behind the desk wouldn’t let us take photos,” says Henry Diltz. “So we walked outside to shoot in front when I noticed the guy had left the desk and went into the elevator. I told the band to run inside and pose inside the window. I shot one roll of film and we were gone five minutes later.”

The next time you dine at one of the 170 Hard Rock Cafes in the world, remember that the name of every single one of those fine establishments is an homage to this 1970 Doors album. (The first side of the album was titled Hard Rock Cafe, the second side was Morrison Hotel.)

crowds sitting in Chicago, Illinois, watching the Graf Zeppelin (navigated by Dr Hugo Eckener) fly over the city on August 28, 1929

My goodness, those people look like they’re dressed for late October, not late August in Chicago! That’s Buckingham Fountain in the first and third pictures. If you’re visiting our fair city, you’ll definitely want to see it. We make it easy for you: it’s just down the street from the Art Institute. (You were planning on visiting the Art Institute, were you not? I thought so.) The fountain is typically shut down from mid-October to sometime in April, depending on the weather. The major displays —and they are spectacular— begin at 9:00 in the morning and are repeated every hour on the hour. At dusk, 20-minute light and music displays are added.

Original Kellogg Crank Phone from the early 1900’s

This reminds me of a beautiful story I heard once, about a teenage boy living out in the country decades ago when the phones were still party lines.  

He had worked up the nerve to call that pretty girl he wanted to take out on a date.

He had to wait for the line to be free to call her, so nervous, knowing that all the people in the area would be able to pick up the phone and listen in as he asked her for a date.  All the teenagers in the town could know who his heart desired and what she said to him on the phone before the next day even came. 

How curious; I know someone who survived that exact same trial by fire as an adolescent!

JESUS FUCK THE FABRICS MY EYES WHY



Reblogged for the delightful caption. I think much the same thing when I see the giant floral curtains from the 1950s or the cheap Jetson’s wallpaper that replaced it in the 1960s. Are our grandchildren going to look at our plain walls and berber carpets and ask “What in the hell were they thinking?”?

Fun fact. Shot of whiskey. A cowboy not having enough money to buy a drink would trade a 45 cartridge they were of equal value. When the bartender would fill a box he would sell it. Hence the term a SHOT of whiskey.  From Peter Sherayko



Information every man should have.

Over the years, I’ve seen about a dozen different publicity pictures of this encounter and have always felt that Sophia Loren was horribly wronged by Jayne Mansfield’s attempt to upstage her. The event was a party welcoming Sophia to Hollywood in April 1957. Jayne used the occasion, as she often did, to “accidentally” expose way too much of herself to the always-alerted-in-advance photographers. At the time, Sophia appeared to be the threatened female, casting sidelong glances at the oblivious interloper. Over the years, people have learned what actually happened that evening and Sophia has emerged the true Hollywood icon. Jayne has been relegated to a parody of a movie star: a beautiful but desperate, kind of trashy second-tier stereotype. It’s a shame, really; Jayne Mansfield could have been so much more.

Unidentified studio, seris 6020, with a nice hand-tinted finish.  Note that while the photograph itself has faded with time, the tinted sections remain vibrant.  Such is art.


So, one could make the argument that vintage-erotica tumblrs are providing an invaluable service to our culture through our joyous digitizing of every erotic image ever made?
