Special Garden Statue

I am so darn tired of putting gnomes on my front lawn to brighten up the garden. Time for something different!

The Indonesian-language catalog description translates quite honestly: "Erotic nude female statue woman bronze statue."

Order yours here.

Porn, Accidentally Shown

There was a recent case in which some x-rated material was accidentally shown during a funeral for a father and son. This got me interested in similar cases where this has happened. So I dug into the archives and came up with a list of incidents, stretching back some fifty years, involving porn, accidentally shown.

Rosita Royce:  Dance of the Doves



The YouTube host of this video complains that Rosita does not use doves in her dance, but other birds, thus misrepresenting herself. But as we can see from this article, that is a mere technicality, since Rosita was quite intimate with doves also.

The True History of Hot Pants

I rely on Wikipedia quite a bit, and get upset when I discover an error. I have done so in their entry on Hot Pants.

Wikipedia attributes the invention of Hot Pants--which they specifically equate with "short shorts"--to UK designer Mary Quant. What a slur on American ingenuity!

You can see below the use of the term and the style in a 1950 issue of Life magazine.

Original 1950 article here.

And again, in a 1956 issue.

Plainly, Wikipedia is in grave error on this important scholarly matter.

Gaytime Raspberry Roughs



Alas, in this less-innocent year of 2015, anyone soliciting a "gaytime raspberry rough" and expecting an ice cream treat is likely to get something different than they anticipated.

Dolphina at Bimbo’s 365 Club

image

Bimbo's 365 Club is still an active music venue in San Francisco. But, according to news on their own website, they seem to have abandoned a long proud tradition: Dolphina, the miniature live nude woman who swims in a fishbowl with goldfish.

How was this illusion achieved? When Dolphina was profiled in the NY TIMES in 2011, we learned:

IT’S AN ILLUSION A catacomb of tunnels in the bowels of the club leads to a small room containing a rotating platform on which the live “mermaid” reclines, naked. A periscope with angled mirrors projects her image up into the fishbowl where it appears that a tiny mermaid, about six inches long, is floating in an underwater grotto.

One at least hopes that the statue to an ideal Dolphina, erected in 1952 inside the club, still has a place of honor.
