    I just recently saw a picture of my old fictional-crush Betty Boop and it got me thinking... what ever happened to pinups? You know, the old tasteful, provocative, yet not overtly revealing pictures that just made your pants crawl? The kind you would hang up in your Army locker. The kind they used to slap on decks of playing cards. The kind you'd use to cover holes that you made in the walls of your prison cell with a rock-hammer.

    These are the genre that made Marilyn Monroe, Betty Paige, and Roquelle Welch the heart throbs of a generation. I still find them incredibly sexy. Somewhere in our society, we decided that seeing strangers have sex on a daily basis was preferable to looking at provocative editorials of beautiful women acting coy and soft yet sexually adventurous.

    [​IMG]

    I realize that there was a shift in what was considered provocative, and it probably came sometime before Madonna and Britney started kissing on network television, or Janet Jackson decided to whip out a boob on a Sunday afternoon. Call me old-fashioned, but if given a choice of seeing a woman naked, or seeing her scantily clad in something provocative, I'll choose provocative (for at least a little while;)).

    I guess I kind of think of it as reverse Penis-envy. There is something incredibly sexy about being a coy and seductive female. And it is something that men will never be able to accomplish: the femininity, the body beauty, the natural curve, the sensuality... it's unobtainable to us, and thus I find it incredibly attractive.

    There was a movement a bit ago that happened around the same time Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan became a bit obsessed with the classic Marilyn poses and editorials, toward adopting this flavor of photography in the new age, but it kind of fell through and I was disappointed. In a society where you can see just about an endless supply of strangers with their clothes off, bearing and doing it all... I tend to find the ones who keep a little on and know the difference between seduction, and blunt intercourse incredibly more sexy.

    Just a rant, and a little glimpse into my subconscious. Anyone agree/disagree?

    Steve, I agree. I am a Marilyn fanatic, and I have black and whites of her framed in my bedroom. I like the ones that don't portray her as sex-kitten, i.e. putting on makeup at her dressing table, sitting in a lounger reading the newspaper. I totally appreciate the women of that era, who were sexy in thier own rights withought going nude, flashing bare crotches, and sans boob jobs. Pin-ups were quite voluptuous and were not so hung up on being bony. The romance, seduction, and beauty of those ladies and that era has never been matched in any subsequent generation. Women were ladies in public then, and still had it going on in the bedroom. Hats off to ya!!!!

    Bettie was definitely one of my favorites with her dark hair and pale skin.
    Oh yah, she was the original "Bad Girl"...

    Just look at those sexy shoes... and pearls! When was the last time you saw real pearls on a classy lady in amateur internet porn?
    Whew!

    Have mercy. I don't think those existed in the heyday of pinups.

    Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

    I'm not sure that picture really qualifies...

    Yeah, she has no legs, and that was always one of the main highlights of a pinup.

    Yeah that, and the fact that her proportions are so distorted she looks freakish instead of seductive, IMHO.

    Her shirt says "pinup glam" and she doesn't do any nude photos, so I figured that she qualified. The sites I see it on list is as "classic pin up style". But what do I know? :lol

    The longer you wait, the better it gets.

    Yes... long sexy legs are a must. Usually accented by some alluring under-garments...

    And I agree with CL. The lady can have large breasts just fine... but the mark of a true beauty is that she's not ill-proportioned. Pinup girls looked natural (more or less), many were just voluptuous.

    Ah yes.... The pin up girl! Femininity at her finest. The art of showing enough to be obviously aware of what it's doing to viewers, but looking innocent enough that it could literally be an accident!!!!
    Yum
    Gil elvgrens bear necessity is still one of my faves.
    My next tattoo will hopefully be an old nose art picture I'm unfortunately no longer in possession of..... A girl is squeezing herself out of a toothpaste type tube..... Anyone know of it?
