Jelena Jensen’s jugs make our eyeballs jiggle!

Besides writing my Horny Time Traveler column for GALLERY magazine, another freelance assignment is doing product, book, and video reviews for another long established title, SWANK. My first Swank Stuff column premieres in the April 2009 issue…

Covergirl Jelena Jensen is one of the Internet's top naturally busty models!

I’ve been working in the adult magazine business since the mid-1970s, so I’ve pretty much seen every variation of pose and model, but without getting all gushy I have to say that this new issue of SWANK has some memorable shots that even got a jaded pornmeister like myself sitting up straight—so to speak. The mark of a good strokebook is its selection and arrangement of interesting pictures that linger in the memory, and from its pictorial of Jelena and her major mammaries to a spectacular six pages of a cutie named Tiziana pouring a glass of milk on herself, this issue is a keeper.

Besides my column, which reviews stuff like an excellent photo book about Steve McQueen and a new collection of classic French erotic postcards, this issue of SWANK has another installment of “Those Were the Lays,” porn actor/historian/activist/raconteur William Margold’s continuing memoir of life in the Golden Age of Smut, as well as columns by XXX superstars Ron Jeremy and blonde phenomenon Mary Carey. There’s also a sensuous short story called “My Big, Fat Greek Stud,” about a girl’s memorable vacation to an Aegean isle. The tale is illustrated by well-chosen explicit photos of cute brunettes being well-serviced by presumably Hellenic heartthrobs (although all we see of the lucky gents are the parts that throb)…

One item I reviewed in Swank Stuff that is of particular interest for all you Horny Time Travelers out there is American Nudes, Volume 1, a new DVD compilation from Cult Epics of classic 8mm films from the 1940s. One of the shorts is called “Asiatic Secrets,” and following are two screen captures from it, made by me exclusively for this blog:

This is from a film shot in the 1940s...

See my column in the April 2009 SWANK for more details about this disc. I feel that a reviewer is a kind of explorer, and it’s my job to get out there and let you know about the interesting stuff you might otherwise miss in the avalanche of your daily distractions. Hell, that’s one purpose of this blog, too!

I'm still recovering from watching this vibrant vixen work her wiles in "Asiatic Secrets!"

Of course, SWANK is for adults only 18 years and older. So…if you’re of age…check it out!

  1. Herr Traveler,

    I have not seen breasts like those of the Swank cover girl since the legendary Anna Ventura! As one who has “seen it all,” could you please tell me– are they comparable? better? Please enlighten me!

  2. My dear Count–how dare we mere mortals quantify the assets of goddesses? Jelena and Anna each deserve an honored place in the pantheon of gazongas!
