Topper’s Belle Invades Europe

Blonde beauty Dartland Dameron took a trip to Europe and Topper was there to capture all the fun! From the invention of photography American’s have been interested in Europe’s loose stance on nudity. The first nudie films were ‘art house’ pictures from Europe, they were just a way to see boobies. Most of the pictures are of Dartland on a boat in Italy, but they’re all great artistic shots. Charles Rayburn’s pictures are artistic as well as showing boobies, ha. It really looks like she had a great sixties European vacation.

There are a few more pictorials left in Topper, it’s definitely my goal to finish it up this month so I can start on a new magazine for May. If you want more topless ladies head on over to my Tumblr page, it’s about 90% pictures I have found, not scanned myself, but there’s some great stuff out there. Also I have an Instagram devoted to topless retro ladies, although they don’t allow nudity so I have to censor the pictures, boo! I love contributing to the historic digital archive by scanning these magazines as well as sharing all the other awesome pictures I come across. So if you’re on either of those sites, check em out.


Topper Throws a Year End Bash

This is a staged new year’s party pictorial celebrating 1965. It’s an interesting look into what a new year’s party from the 60’s might be like, although I feel like there’d be less nudity, depending on who’s house you were at. The pictures are a rad time capsule and I like that a few are actually in color. Also, if the ladies are getting naked, why aren’t the men?

I’ll leave you with this excerpt before the pictures…

“Tomorrow begins another fiscal, but the night -and most of the morning- belongs to the hedonists of the world…May your glass be ever filled with the wine of good cheer and may the girls brighten your life- every time. ’65’s the time to be alive!”

The pictorial is in the correct order, as it appears in Topper. Enjoy!

Vicky’s Room At The Top

Here’s the second pictorial from Topper 1965 featuring Vicki Ludovisi and a second bonus pictorial featuring Soledad Miranda, both actresses in Europe at the time. Vicky is adorable and has a very stylish 60’s bob, with the cutest little smile and big sparkling eyes. I’d say she’s one of the cutest in the magazine, although her pictorial is one of the shortest featured. Soledad has the shortest pictorial in the magazine, and sadly isn’t nude, just a bit naughty. In 1965 she had barely been introduced to American audiences, her short write up is about her success in Spain, and a few upcoming films (Pyro, The Castilian, etc). This native of Portugal, says she likes American men, she says ‘they are so virile.’ In 1965 she was the highest paid fashion models in Spain, not bad for a 20 year old.

“Literally, Soledad Miranda is a precious addition to the Topper gallery- and she acts too!”

I really think Topper’s photo’s are well shot and are some of the more artistic I have seen, in the smut genre. Hope you like the two for one blog posts, enjoy!


Topper 1965 and Laura Eden

New magazine day! Although I’m starting a new mag today, there’s one or two pictorials left for Rapture. I was thinking for variety sake I would introduce something new. I might get back to it, but if I don’t the pictures I haven’t blogged yet are available to view in my Imgur account, along with other pics. I will include the cover/back first then a pictorial, with cropped pics then the layout pictorial.

Bare Skin in Gotham Starring Laura Eden is a short write up about a movie Laura starred in called “Laura Eden’s Magic” and talks about the trend of making ‘nudie’ movies; I couldn’t find any info on the film. It’s kinda weird to me that they state “in spite of the fact that they now no longer generate the heat they once did- at least in print” mostly because ‘nudie’ movies were still kinda new in 1965, perhaps because there wasn’t mainstream penetration at the time? They go on to say “There isn’t much else to say…but that it’s worth looking at. After all, what are girls for?” which I think is the funniest part of the article. The actual write up is pretty short, feel free to read and comment about your take on it. Laura is adorbs, and I’m sure you’ll like her pics as much as I do. Enjoy!
