FIFTY ON FRIDAYS – JUNE 18, 1971 – NY Times

Once again we’re back in NYC, and we have a rather big surprise in our line up: an Andy Milligan play! Yes, at the Jewel Theater we had Milligan’s SECTION 8, which may or may not have been a semi-autobiographical story about his time in the military, and his eventual ousting from it. The script…

NEW YORK ADULT ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE Vol 1 Num 1 – 1984

The following is a scanned copy (visuals and text transcript) of the NEW YORK ADULT ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE, Volume 1 Number 1 from 1984. This is a fascinating time-capsule of the seedier side of New York City (mainly Manhattan, and typically mainly Mid-Town) in the decade before the Big Mouse started sniffing around town. I don’t…

FIFTY ON FRIDAYS – January 15, 1971 – NEW YORK CITY

This week we’re back in New York City (surprise, surprise) and it seems to be a rather slim-pickings week, at least based on the ads (perhaps this is an indication that hotter stuff was being shown but not yet advertised). As always, enjoy.

FIFTY ON FRIDAYS – December 4, 1979 – NY DAILY NEWS

Today’s edition of Fifty on Fridays we go back to New York City on December 4, 1970, which was a rather warm (for December in NY) 50 F, so I would bet the Christmas shopping was in full swing, and the tired and frustrated husbands might be sneaking away from an hours long marathon spree…

VINTAGE AD – 250 BOOK CENTER/G&A BOOKS (NYC)

Another vintage television advertisement which aired during an episode of Emerald City, a gay-oriented TV show which ran in New York City from 1976 to 1979. This ad for the 250 Book Center (250 W 42nd Street) and G&A Books (251 W 42nd Street) came from Episode 31, 1977. Apologies for the poor audio quality,…

FIFTY ON FRIDAYS – September 18, 1970 – NY DAILY NEWS

From time to time on Fridays we’ll be posting things that happened exactly 50 years previously (we say “from time to time” because we know ourselves to well to commit to every week). These will typically focus on something in the Smut World, more often than not ads for films and shows in a particular…

OLGA LA BLANCHE – TAKE 2

One of the earlier posts from Capri Show World was based on a single ad in the New York Daily News from December 13, 1971 and the two burlesque dancers featured, Gina Bon Bon and Olga La Blanche. There is a wealth of information on Gina and the post wound up centering on her bio…

LABOR DAY NYC 1970 – ANOTHER PLACE ANOTHER TIME

Today, September 7, 2020, is Labor Day in the United States, and fifty years ago September 7, 1970, just happened to also a Labor Day. Late summer of 1970 was just at the turning point towards full hardcore for adult films, and this was just beginning to penetrate NYC at this point (no pun intended,…
