Tuesday Titillation: Boyz In Cars - Part III

Tuesday Titillation: 
Boyz In Cars - Part III

Our final look at boyz in cars.

Almost makes one want to plan a road trip.

But what to wear?

Umm... somehow, I'm thinkin' that's not going to be an issue.

Take off and take it off!
Get in your car and feel the wind on your face...
Among other places!

Acquired Tastes XLIII: Gay Pulp Fiction, Part 184 - Parisian Press, Part 2 of 4

Acquired Tastes XLIII
Gay Pulp Fiction, Part 184
Parisian Press
Part 2 of 4

Today, we take the second of four looks at Parisian Press (not to be confused with Gay Parisian Press - which are related to these and preceded them - or the leaflet-like adult offerings of Parisian Press published during the 1940s, 30s, and 40's in France.

Parisian Press published 45 gay titles during the years 1971 and 1972, running the typical gamut of gay subjects, including: incest, coaches, teachers, brothers, coming out, truckers, military, hustlers, and interracial. In addition, they published a 400 series devoted to heterosexual fare. All titles were printed in the US and were published in San Francisco.

The covers are typically a single color background with a white line drawing (sort of like an x-ray) - unless the solid color is white. In that instance the drawing appears in black ink.  

The books were written by a number of well-established writers, typically using a pseudonym. 

In the back of the book, mail order ads offering these books, gay skin magazines, their Gay Parisian Press titles, and a selection of heterosexual books and magazines. The mail order business operated as Le Salon Mail Order House, Inc. at 1118 Polk Street, San Francisco, CA 94109

Depending on condition, these books run from $18-76 at on-line bookstores, or, frequently, much more on eBay. 

Here are the next 12 titles! This week, I found 11 out of 12 covers.
