Trouble in Mind: Those Sex-Obsessed Americans

frigid women valentine

“Compared to foreign women, American women are sexless. But their minds are almost constantly on sex. The American woman dresses sex, talks sex, dreams sex, reads sex, smirks sex, pretends sex, hints at sex, smells of sex, slinks sex, dances sex and wiggles sex, but take it from Mortimer, she is a cold, sex-starved potato. Her chief interest in men is what she can get out of them – or how she can enslave them.”

Women Confidential


Frankly, this all sounds exhausting. But what do I know — I’m just a cold potato.


January Hussy of the Month!

Jan 2013 HOM

Bring out the Gimp.”
Gimp’s sleeping.”

“Wake him up, then. He’s late for school.”


Why, yes, my dear ducklings, it’s the return of the Hussy of the Month! While this 1921 photo apparently depicts “Rubber beauty masks, worn to remove wrinkles and blemishes,” believe you me, these are hussies and they’re up to no good at all. Why, they’re probably writing a manifesto arguing to allow women to show their bare ankles.

You’d think Bust Cream would be just for the ladies, but YOU WOULD BE WRONG. Bust Cream can be also used as Food, making it a great gift for any couple (or hungry person) on your shopping list.

Chick History recommended this Akai video recording system. And since it comes with an invitation from a Penthouse Pet to attend a video taping session with them (?!), it truly is the gift that keeps on giving.

Adventures in Pickup Lines: Klee vs. Cosmo

bad pickup line

[The following is presented as an example of a “successful” pick-up line to be used in an art museum.]

“Stare at bizarre abstract for five minutes, then nod in judgement, poking cheek in tongue.

YOU: My five-year-old brother has a better notion of line and perspective.

SHE: (eyebrows raised): Better than Klee?

YOU: You don’t believe me? Look! (Pull folded charcoal line drawing of city skyline from your coat pocket.) Have you ever seen such a display of sweeping vision in conjunction with a draftsman’s precision…

This line may be a bit shaky unless your kid brother is in the same league with Klee. But maybe not, because she probably knows nothing about art. After all, Cosmopolitan sent her to the museum to look for men, not for culture.”

The Sensuous Man


Well, obviously. It’s not like “culture” is going to teach you 101 ways to please a man.
