From the Archives

"His lips were fixed to mine; the soft velvety tip of his tongue was a tidbit I could not refuse, and I sucked it till I almost choked for want of breath. He spent again under the stimulating emotions with which I inspired him. He lay still for a few moments as we recovered our breath, then, with an upward motion of my buttocks, I challenged him to go on. It was a most erotically voluptuous love engagement. I could not exhaust him; he was continually shooting his love juice into my very insatiable womb, and it was more than an hour before either of us would consent to a cessation of the game."

— From The Pearl: A Journal of Voluptuous Reading. The Underground Magazine of Victorian England (1967)

means no splashy commentary on the story of Lot’s daughters,
i.e., “Don’t sleep with your dad unless
totally desperate” — there is now a male version
of Revolve, the New Testament-as-fashion-mag. It’s called Refuel,
and like its sister publication it uses actual Biblical text
sandwiched between eye-catching graphics, advice columns, top
10 lists, and articles about
bands. — Gwynne Watkins

Axe Deodorant’s Pitman.

This blog puts it well: “I believe too much advertising today focuses
on unrealistic body images, trying to associate products with sex
appeal: ‘Use our product, and you will become a chiseled hunk who
draws women from miles around.’ You, however, have chosen to break
that mold, with an ad whose underlying message seems to be: ‘Use
Axe anti-perspirant, and you will become a hairy
no head, arms or genitalia.’"
