There’s so much from Blast! #1 I could probably do ten posts about it, but I have so much other fun stuff to post I want to move on to another magazines. Also most of the other pictorials in the magazine aren’t labeled, so I will add some various pictures I haven’t posted yet. Everything I have is available on Flickr plus more that I have yet to feature. Enjoy!
I love how Elke Eichwede looks almost like someone I could have gone to school with. Her smile and demeanor seems so Californian to me for some reason.Blast says she is Norwegian and 6ft tall, but I didn’t find any other info on her. So all I have to offer is the pictures, which speak for themselves I suppose. Enjoy!
Barbara Valentin is so adorable! She is a model and actress from Germany who was super popular in the 60’s and 70’s, appearing on film and television. Apparently in the 80’s she had a relationship with Freddie Mercury. I am not sure what that relationship entailed exactly, but I thought it was interesting to note. She is compared to Jayne Mansfield and Brigitte Bardot, you know boobs and blonde hair, makes sense. My fave picture is the second one where she’s laying down, but in every shot she looks like she’s having fun. Enjoy!
I found some great info on wikipedia and Groupieblog
Starting things off is Blast! Issue #1
‘An unsophisticated approach to masculine pleasure’
These are front and back covers of the first issue . I cannot find her name anywhere but she does have a pictorial in the magazine I will post too! This was one of my first vintage smut mags and I just love her almost sensual but kind of annoyed expression. My issue of Blast! #1 is falling apart which is disappointing cuz it is a first issue. I doubt its worth more than the $4 I paid for it, but just for my own collection it sucks the cover is coming off. Also when I scanned it I super mixed up the pages, which don’t have numbers. Oops. So my first time is going great. Enjoy!
