Wildcat Adventure June 1963

"Confessions of a Divorce Mills Love Mate" A history lesson for the children (under 40) here. In the United States before 1969, divorce was very difficult. Divorce was granted only because one party to the marriage had violated a sacred vow to the "innocent spouse." Long seprations might be required. The exception was my old stomping grounds (from Wiki):
By 1909, however, Reno, Nevada was, and was happy to be, "the divorce capital of the world." At that time, only six months in Nevada were sufficient to establish Nevada residency, and the Nevada courts, well aware of the contribution of divorce seekers to Nevada's hospitality industry, accepted the resident's uncorroborated statement that grounds for divorce, usually "extreme cruelty," existed. In 1927, the Nevada Legislature, "in response to a perceived threat to Reno’s divorce supremacy from France and Mexico and a divorce-trade war that had been going on since the end of World War I between Nevada, Idaho, and Arkansas," changed the residency period to three months, and in 1931, the same Legislature that voted in "wide-open gambling" dropped it to six weeks. Providing accommodations and other amenities for visitors, who could not leave Nevada during the six weeks, became a major Reno industry; greeters met the arriving trains, and there were a variety of divorce ranches.
Then in 1969, California passed "no-fault" divorce and the flood gates opened.

This blurb refers to sweet and handsome young men who kept the perspective divorcees from being lonely while establishing residency.

"The Nude Tent Girls of Normany" Your guess is as good as mine, though I do like the'nude girls' part.
"They had orders to find Playmates for the Women-Mad Oil Shieks of the Desert. If money couldn't buy them, they were to stop at nothing to get them!" If the girls were to stupid to take the money they deserved the 'stop at nothing' treatment!
"Unnatural Torture (as opposed to natural torture? Is this an early example of the organic food movement?) Sacrifices of the Nympho Hari-Kari Hostages." Whew! Sounds great!
Cover" Not at all chear which if any of those stories is the cover. But the girl in the back being stripped is very nice. And the girl in front being encouraged by a a whip to do a belly dance is very, very nice. Damn frogman look like they will spoil the Japanese(?) party.

Tip of the hat to the incomparable Eulalia: Reno also allowed quickie marriages as well as divorces. So Reno, had the same meaning to Americans as Gretna Green had for the English (Remember Wickham and Lydia in P&P)

16940337770_83e508f9b0_k.jpg "House of Naked Defenders" The naked part got my attention.

Some cowgirls have a bit more spirit -

All the cowhands wanna carry Harriet,
She'll look dandy tied up with a lariat,
And she ain't gonna to parry it,
She's havin' too much fun!

(who knows the real words? My grannie used to sing them)

Man's Exploits April 1963
Man's Exploits, April 1963-8x6.jpg
"The Bawdy Mata Hari Who sank a Fleet..." what is the ... for?
"The Lion Woman Wanted my Body!" I would ask what she wanted it for? Can I read the fine print?
"Scandal of the "Hypno-Kick" Parties!" "Bizarre Rituals of the Sadistic College Cut-Ups!" These stories are true. AT college in the sixties I experienced all of this (actually not:(). But I did go to one Hypno party. Big disappointment! The guy couldn't hypnotize me, apparently my mind is too strong or something. But there's no scandal to it. I do bark like dog if anyone says the word "aardvark." Bark, Bark, Bark! Sorry. Don't know what happened there.
Cover: We battled Hitler's Blood-Crazed Amazons!" Total role reversal. The Nazi's are fighting bravely against impossible odds. Four really hot Nazi Babes (two blonde, two red - sorry brunettes) battle the advancing Amerikaner Schweinehunds brave GIs. Yes - all very hot, perfect hair, and the regulation Nazi busty cleavage. Not when things get really tough, like here, the rip open their blouses to give the tatas some fresh air! Note, all wearing the red blouse with swastika armband personally designed by Hitler himself.

I wonder if Messaline would object to lumping in these Nazis with her Amazons?

we've seen that one before PrPr - not that I mind,
but I'm still taxed by the question, is a 'renegade demon'
a demon who's seen the light and is going straight?
Perhaps earning an honest living
planning ultimate horrors in Abbeys?

Sorry, didn't see until now.
Are you raising the specter of rampant scholasticism? Is the real question you are asking is how many demons can dance on the head of an angel ("we are legion")? Or is this just another attempt to spread the Dominican/Franciscan feud to a new stomping ground. Well I say, 'a curse on both their houses!' As for me and my house, we will serve the Ludi magister! (Or do I mean Elegantiae Arbiter?)

Exotic Adventures 1958 Vol. 1 #6
Exotic-1957-600x801.jpg Published less than two years, on glossy not pulp paper (with full nudes inside)
Cover; "Soviet Slave Camp: Torture in Hell" Don't get caught by those Ruskies! (Is this where Barbara Moore ends up at the end of Barbarrosanova?)
"Secret Sex Rites pf Uganda" The secret rites are always the best kind!
"Sin City Below the Border."
So here we are in the Tijuana Jail
Ain't got no friends to go our bail
So here we'll stay 'cause we can't pay
Just send our ma-ail to the Tijuana Jail
"The Temptation of Eve" Boy, they went way back in history for that one!
"The Lusty Diving Girls of Japan" The Ama!!
One of the lesser-known but fascinating parts of Japanese culture is that of the Ama pearl divers. Ama (海女 in Japanese), literally means ‘woman of the sea’ and is recorded as early as 750 in the oldest Japanese anthology of poetry, the Man’yoshu. These women specialised in freediving some 30 feet down into cold water wearing nothing more than a loincloth. Utilising special techniques to hold their breath for up to 2 minutes at a time, they would work for up to 4 hours a day in order to gather abalone, seaweed and other shellfish.

Great topless maraini4.png pictures I saw when I was thirteen!
