Funny & Sexy Magazines I Think Dean Martin Would Have Enjoyed

These are definitely the kind of magazines that I could imagine Dean Martin having a look at.

1960-01-Humorama-frommag

1960-4-Stare-frommag

Those two magazines covers are courtesy of my pallie Mag. The rest I found on my own.

P.S. Many of you already know about my other blog. For those that don't, it's called Sugar & Spice. It's my tribute devoted to the beautiful women, both famous and non-famous, of the swinging 60's and the groovy 70's. I hope you'll check it out. Please feel free to leave comments there. I love hearing from people. Thanks. Cheers!

Amy said...

Those are cool mags, I can just imagine how scandalous they would be been back then.

Jessica Cangiano said...

So wonderfully fun! Agreed, Deano would most likely have taken a shinning to these pin-up filled mags in a heartbeat :)

Have a fantastic Friday, Keith!
♥ Jessica

Terence Sambo said...

very chic and fun images

Diana said...

i love these. can you believe there are ads worse than this now? times definitely have changed

Bruce Coltin said...

The magazine covers are fantastic. Anyone who wants to know more about the story behind them, has to go rent The Notorious Betty Paige, starring Gretchen Mol. She was The Queen.

Bruce Coltin said...

By the way Keith, have you ever thought of putting together "theme parties?" You could tap into the baby boomer market by going to private events, where you would play your vintage music, hang posters of the gang, wear a costume yourself, etc. I think it could very well lead to a profitable and fun niche business, without any real investment risk.

Hey Janet. You are very welcome. I'm glad you liked them. It's cool that I could introduce something to you. Cheers back! :-)

Keith said...

Hey Amy. Thanks. Glad you liked them. Yeah, I bet they would have caused quite a stir in many circles back then. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Thanks. I'm glad you agree. Yeah, I can just imagine him sitting back with a drink, a smoke & one of these mags. Enjoy your Friday and weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Thanks Terence. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Diana. Thanks. I know what you mean. I really like these myself. This is my style.

Keith said...

Hey Bruce. Thanks for the comments. Great hearing from you. I love that movie. I've been planning to watch it again.

Wonderful idea. Wow! I had never thought about that before. It sounds like a cool idea. I might have to give that some serious thought. Thanks so much. I appreciate the advice.

Have a great weekend. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Proudly. Thanks. It was great hearing from you. I hadn't visited your blog lately until the other day. It seemed like you had been busy and weren't posting. Then I popped up there the other day and saw quite a few posts. I'm glad you enjoyed this post. I've had two blogs for quite some time. I started the other one a few months after this one. I've mentioned it a time or two up here. Plus I have a link for it in my sidebar. Enjoy your weekend.

Keith said...

Thanks Dave. I thought so too. Cheers!

Robert M. Lindsey said...

Seems like I remember finding an Eye magazine in a box of my dad's stuff. Perhaps that's why I'm so enamored of the vintage ladies.

Erika said...

I don't know where you find this stuff...fantastic!

Couture Carrie said...

These are such fabulous covers! I can't believe I've never heard of any of these mags before!

Enjoy your weekend, K!

Mrs. M. said...

I LOVE these covers! I have been thinking about picking up a leopard print bikini and these pics have pushed me over the edge. Mucho sexy!

Gingeyginge said...

Their raunchy was still classy..far from today's rubbish.

jbfunky said...

Nice stash you got there Keith, I myself am a fan of vintage magazines...such as TV Radio Mirror, Photoplay, etc

Pop Champagne said...

you caught my attention with the "sexy magazine pose" haha!

Nancy Sinatra Fan said...

These covers are quite sexy and witty. I like them. Have a nice weekend.

Keith said...

Hey Robert. That's cool. I don't ever remember seeing anything like these in my dad's magazine collection. I do love the vintage babes.

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks. Some is sent to me, while other things I discover in my searches online.

Keith said...

Hey Carrie. Thanks. Glad you liked these. It's cool that I could introduce you to these mags. I haven't heard of all of them myself.

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, Thanks. I'm so glad you liked these. That's great that this post helped inspire you about your purchase. Go for it. Cheers!

Keith said...

Hey Gingey. Thanks. I agree with you. What they considered raunchy was sexy and beautiful. Much better than what goes for that today.

Keith said...

Hey JB. Thanks. Glad you liked these. I think there are so many great vintage magazines out there on all sorts of subjects.

Keith said...

Hey Pop. That's cool that got your attention. It would have gotten mine too. :-)

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I'm glad you liked them. Cheers!

Haha what amazing magazines, I hope you can still find them in some corner of the world lol. I'm loving the look of Humorama :) Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

Thanks Vorega.

Keith said...

Hey La C. Yeah, I definitely agree with you on that. I can see him, Sammy & the gang checking these out.

I'm an idiot and had no idea Sugar and Spice was your other blog! Where the hell have *I* been?!

(I *just* added S&S to my blogroll and followed you there too, Keith!)

Radiation Cinema! said...

Keith: There is nothing cooler than those men's magazines from the 50s and early 60s. I've been posting some the men's adventure type mags over at my joint for examples of atomic age illustration, too. What the hell happened to our sense of style?

Personally, I want a lifetime subscrition to Snappy! -- Mykal

Gabbi said...

Gorgeous Pinup Mag's!! :)

Keith said...

Hey Kim. Sorry you hadn't realized before that Sugar & Spice was my other blog. Thanks for adding to your links. I'll add your blog to my links up there.

Keith said...

Hey Mykal. Thanks. Glad you enjoy these magazines too. I love all these cool mags from the 50's/60's. Those are the kind of mags I wanna read today. It is a shame that our sense of style is no longer in vogue.

Keith said...

Thanks Gabbi.

esther said...

ooooh...sassy!

Keith said...

Thanks Esther.

Kelly Gannon said...

Keith...I prefer these ladies in the retro magazines as compared to the newer ones......at least these ladies look real!

Keith said...

Hey Kelly. Thanks. I totally agree with you. These are the kind of ladies I prefer. They are natural and not fake. Have you checked out my other blog Sugar & Spice yet? If not, you should. I post pictures of the beautiful women of the 60's and 70's over there.
