I did half expect to see Jim Conrad from the "Wild Wild West" in one of those pics, though.

I think 1979 VS's theme was "Saloon Floozie Tintype Photos"

I think one of them is Artemus Gordon.

He's that good.

Plenty of that stuff in their current catalogs. Not every woman wants to sleep with a string up their ass.

Man, kids today have it made. In my day, we masturbated to the lingerie section of the Sears catalog. But now thanks to the Internet, kids can go to Sears.com whenever they want.

this one....on the left?  (pic is NSFW because nipples are visible, and the thread link is also NSFW because of same, and I really don't feel like another TO for bullshiat reasons)

Yeah I'd like to know. She looks familiar, but that could just be because she was maybe popular at the time.

To this day I can't orgasm unless I see a model in granny panties with a mildly amused expression.

We just couldn't get enough Victorian updos in 1979.

Memories, when I was a wee lad, I subscribed to VS then using my downstairs neighbors name just in case mom picked up the mail I had plausible denial, and if it went missing, no one was really looking for it .

The thing that struck me the most was that they, with some game on your side, actually seemed like attainable real women.  Someone that you actually had a chance of scoring with, someone real that could come home from work, help fix dinner, and actually talk about normal things.  Someone a normal everyday guy could take to bed & help them out of the frilly things they were wearing.

Today's models, more or less, are airbrushed & plastic surgeried ideals of perfection, spend quite a bit of their day at the gym, & then at dinner complain that the single lettuce leaf they are eating is going to make them look fat.  As far as your chance with them, if you aren't a pro athlete with an eight figure annual salary, you're not getting in the door let alone anywhere near the bed with them.

Frankly give me the real ones without all the airbrush & plastic.

One of the comments in cretinbob's link mentioned a Jill Goodacre.  I really couldn't tell in my fast googling but it is a place to start.

I could fap to that if they all weren't  old enough to be my mom given i was seven back then.

And Jill's wiki page mentions Stephanie Seymour as one of the early VS models & I'm pretty sure that it's her.

Seems unlikely since Jill Goodacre was born in 1965.

Now that I actually read the pages I see that Jill & Stephanie were VS models but more in the later 80s.  Their ages in 79 when this came out would be 14 & 11 respectively....

Never mind.
 
2014-07-31 07:09:18 PM  
Really? Anyone surprised by this? The 70s were the last 'liberal' decade of the 20th Century. I'm still waiting for one in the 21st.

Want other evidence? ABC showed Playboy's Roller Disco and Pajama Party in 1979.

This article might explain why that is.  Basically, the guy who founded VS did so with men as the target demographic, rather than women.  The idea was to give Mr. John Q. Customer a place that was kind of classy (hence the Victorian boudoir décor), where he could buy sheer lacy underthings for his special lady without being made to feel like a pervert.

Well, I don't know about the "attainable" part, but they didn't have 6-1/2 foot, 300-lb. goons hovering around them 24/7, either.  Most of them were just very attractive, girl-next-door-in-the-best-part-of -town types, where you would expect to need to be a tall, tan, model-looking guy in an Angel's Flight suit and drive at least a Trans-Am (but still not be an Iranian exchange student) in order to chat them up at a disco.....B^D

This is actually hotter than a lot of the normal stuff you see today. And I can't figure out why. Probably what Recoil Therapy said.

I feel for you not all of us can land perfect models, but they do exist and I married one 15 yrs ago. Everything a farker could ask for including sammich deficient abs and dangerously sharp knees.

2014-07-31 07:37:56 PM  
pffft. someone uncovered a giant stack of penthouses left in a corner of a storage shed in the neighborhood either that summer or 1980

good times. teaching young men about airbrushing and soft focus perversion. good times.

I don't mind traversing the wild Bushland, but the overgrown Pits of Stench and the Forests of the Calves are definitely not a places I would want to gaze upon.
 
2014-07-31 07:50:32 PM  
Ahh, the good ol' days when the rare Victoria's Secret catalog was prime spank material. Most of us could only get a hold of the Sears or JC Penney catalog. Super rare was finding a Playboy or Hustler or Penthouse in the woods or a dumpster somewhere. I remember a couple of us at 12 years old found the mother load in a gas station dumpster where they threw all the out of date porn mags.
