A Loose Sex History Link Round-Up

My friend Deanna has a great discussion about fascinating antique photographs featuring women with their backs to the camera.

(She also has started a Herstory Facebook Page, which covers women’s history as well as politics — a must “like” if you are a sane person.)

I nearly missed seeing Secret History of the Black Pin Up, by Jim Linderman, aka Victor Minx, of Vintage Sleaze. I’m hoping to get my copy soon! (Hint, hint, hubby.)

TimeGlider created these interactive timelines from Green’s Dictionary of Slang: The Vagina Chart begins in the year 1250; the Penis Chart in 1300.

If you’re less about the words, enjoy photos of exotic dancers from the 1890s.

    Those charts of nicknames for the penis and vagina are hilarious! Haha! Well, as we say in Sweden “a loved child has many names”… In the future I’m going to refer to my vagina as a “mossy doughnut”! 😉 xox
