Major League Sluts '74 **ADULTS ONLY!**

If you saw my recent, diseased post over at THE HORRORS OF IT ALL (HERE!), then you already know of my plan to post more from the wonderfully offensive October 1974 issue of National Lampoon Magazine Vol. 55. And this titillating twist on Major League Baseball cards couldn't be more so! I'm sure some of you will hate me for this, but sorry guys 'n gals, if you don't have a sense of humor, then you have no business visiting this blog in the first place!

More from this issue up next too!

I do think these kinds of things are funny. But I also wish they were way more equal in sexualizing both men and women. As well as the use of the word and idea of slut. It would be hilarious to see this kind of thing with men too.

I love the pics! I'm on my ipad so I can't go back and forth but I love the chick behind bars and the chick on the bike :)

Trust me, National Lampoon skewers the dudes just as hard, if not more, in this issue... this particular card satire is part of a chapter poking fun at high school related subjects, as you'll see in the next post where not even tampon instruction guides are sacred!

It is amazing how he state of comedy changes. I mean, the possibly lopsided skewering of promiscuous teens is treading the line, but some of the underage and rape stuff here is has become pretty taboo for jokes since this was published. I'm sure these cultural fluctuations are normal, and that the taboos are part and parcel of burgeoning notions of equality now, but the modern world sure is markedly different. I suspect if I were to take a time machine, even just back to the eighties, I would be shocked just how changed everything seems, how strikingly different it is from now. In my memory it doesn't seem so different, I guess because it changed gradually, like an hour hand.

Anyway, totally interesting post.

Ah, nice to see Mona, Deena and Tracy again. Haven't seen them since high school. I only got to second base with them, but damn, that was a date to remember: me and three chicks in my '57 Chevy!

I just had to put my two cents in for more male nudity :)

@ Mr C - Hell, 70's National Lampoon Magazine is like day and night compared to 80's National Lampoon somehow, yet it still managed to stay awesome anyway

@CPC - MORE male nudity?

@CPC -- there might be a naked man in Deen Kraminski's hair, you could certainly fit somebody in there!
