Secrets Double-Shot!

Let's take a look at some lowhighlights (I just made up that word) from two steamy issues of Secrets this time, one from August 1968, and one from a bit earlier in the decade, October 1963. As you will see, not much has changed with our unchaste leading ladies and sinful gents in those yearning 5 years, I mean, story-wise everything seems to have remained just as sleazy and scandalous as ever, but possibly the photography and image lay-outs slowly begin taking more chances, even sort of getting "arty" if you know what I mean. Yes, you know what I mean...

Man, I love that layout on the "Marriage Spree" spread. The way the pennant mirrors the shape of her noirishly crawling figure is so cringingly mod. I also love the "Sex Spy" illustration, although I wish the spy had been left in B&W and the binocular lenses had been tinted red and blue respectively, like 3D glasses.

I'm kind of obsessed with the chick begging to be taken to bed... so much so I actually read the stupid story. Also read Babysitters for a Sexpot, cuz, you know, the roller skates

She reminds me a little of Kyra Sedgwick. Maybe there should be a mid-nineties movie version of this story? Eddie Vedder could do the soundtrack?

Say what you will about "just wanting to be taken to bed", but forget that, I want to eat in that restaurant! I will eat in any restaurant who's style is half castle dungeon - half basement rec room!

And I'll bring the roller skates!
