Busty babes of 1955!

If you want to travel back in time in a horny fashion via the medium of a magazine (and you are 18 years of age or older), check out the March 2009 issue of GALLERY, which features the latest installment of my column, The Horny Time Traveler. It will be hitting the stands momentarily.

You'll see it wrapped in plastic on the stands. That's because it comes with a DVD, too.

In this issue’s installment, we travel back to 1955 via two editions of a classic men’s magazine called NIGHT AND DAY. You’ll see reproductions of pictorials featuring sizzling 50s babes like Abbe Lane, Eve Meyer, and Brigitte Bardot. (Below are not the clippings used in the article, but a few pix I found on the Web to illustrate this blog post.)

Abbe Lane was an international sensation, the very definition of a 50s "thrush," as singers were called then.

The late Eve Meyer got more mileage of four opened buttons than most models today get out of a bikini...

In this issue’s column, you’ll see the first tv horror hostess Vampira with a shaved head, long before such shearing became fashionable; and you’ll learn why Abbe Lane, the young Jewish girl singer from Brooklyn, New York, who married the older Latin band leader Xavier Cugat, was rated as the “Total Woman” by the NIGHT AND DAY editorial board. You’ll gaze at an image of busty singer/actress Meg Myles, one of NIGHT AND DAY’s most popular covergirls…

Meg gained immortality in the cult classic Satan in High Heels!

…and you’ll learn from the words of a top burlesque agent the qualifications for being a stripteaser in 1955, and how much a newbie peeler could expect to make. And you’ll also read about a “posture teacher” who criticized Marilyn Monroe for slouching and not wearing a girdle!

The column also gives a sampling of ads from 1955 for everything from radio and tv repair schools to lingerie to lonely hearts clubs, as well as a roundup of the general trends in the American world of 1955. And of course this issue of GALLERY has much more—pictorials of pretty gals like their signature “Girls Next Door” (aka GND), as well as interviews with creative folks like Gregory McDonald, the 100,000,000-copy bestselling author of the Fletch and Flynn mystery series, and a profile of the producers of Spike-TV’s outrageous show “MANswers.” Ever wonder what animal has a vagina most like a human female’s? The MANswers team gives you the lowdown in the March 2009 issue of GALLERY, edited with flair by David J. Evans!
