I call myself The Horny Time Traveler, because I’ve always loved imagining what it would be like to meet women, in all their fascinating variety, from different periods of history. As a kid, one of my favorite movies was 1960’s The Time Machine, that classic journey into the future with stalwart Rod Taylor and sylph-like Yvette Mimieux.
Ever since then, I’ve been fascinated by the idea of transporting myself from one era to another. When I hit adolescence in 1964 and discovered Playboy, my interests in girls and history merged. When I grew up, I became a writer of erotic fiction for adult magazines, and was able to “travel” in my mind to places like Victorian London or the far future for my playful narrative daydreams. By watching old sword-and-sandal movies like Ben-Hur, Spartacus, Son of Samson, or The Vikings, I was also able to vicariously imagine dalliances with the dames of distant days…from empresses to courtesans, from slavegirls to Amazons. In this blog, simply for the pure pleasure of it, I’m going to informally share with you the nuances of femininity I observe in my book and Web browsings through the lives of ladies of long ago…and not so long ago.
I also have a regular column in the adults-only publication Gallery Magazine called “The Horny Time Traveler” wherein I examine the images of women, and society in general, through the perspective of the vintage men’s magazines that I’ve collected over the years. It’s designed to be sexy, thought-provoking, and fun, and will cover different territory than this blog. Look for it at your local newsstand or online. I get a big kick out of the column–and I hope you will, too.
