The forties and fifties produced many vintage books with less than politically correct themes and titles. They were a product of their times. Here are a few from our private collection!
The Troglodytes by Nal Rafcam. Digit 1962. Cover artist unknown.
Undoubtedly pseudonymous author of the imaginatively unremarkable sf novel The Troglodytes, or Dwellers of the Deep (1961). The eponymous Lost Race of Aliens is discovered under Antarctica; they cause much worldwide mayhem before conveniently destroying themselves. The writing style, dense with malapropisms that suggest unskilled use of a thesaurus, closely resembles that of Graeme de Timms. It is probable that Rafcam and De Timms were pseudonyms of the same unidentified craptacular writer.
A great review of this book was published here:
A great selection of steampunk jewelry exists at Sweetheartsinner! Inspired by both the steampunk movement and the art of Salvador Dali. Sweetheartsinner finds inspiration in victorian ephemera, art nouveau and art deco, and the fantastical worlds of science fiction such as those portrayed by H.G. Wells and Jules Verne.

This is an awesome business card case or cigarette case that is handmade and brand new! It is solid metal and black. It is lightweight and easy to carry around. Inside the case is enough room for those easy to lose track of items like your driver's license, student id, credit cards, cash, coins, etc.. or it can fit a two rows of 10 smokes each for a total of 20 regular sized cigarettes. This is a great little item to carry around particularly when you're out and about and only need the essentials. The size of the case is 3 3/4" tall by 3 1/4" inches wide closed by 5/8" deep. The image on the case is protected by a coating. The inside of the case has two spring loaded catches to keep your stuff in place! This makes a great gift!
The case features an awesome image of a vintage pinup vixen in a bowling alley with the saying "Bowl-A-Rama: Where Your Balls And Mind Are In the Gutter" lol! At only $9.99 it will make a great gift for any bowler in your life who enjoys a laugh! Sweetheartsinner has other bowling themed products as well!

This 1960's era book asks the important social question....Which Lesbians Prefer Males?
This features cover art by Bill Edwards, who was a rodeo and film star as well as noted artist! He specialized in Western art but did cover art for many paperbacks in the 1960's. Here is one of the more racy titles from the Sixties. It features a sexy brunette being spanked by a guy presumably because she is a lesbian. Accordingly, the artist and author believe that those lesbians that prefer males must be spanked to get them "straight".
While these books are not at all politically correct or sensitive, they are "campy" and fun in their own way. The obvious answer to the question posed is "NONE!" Lesbian paperbacks are fun to collect for their campy covers and taglines! They can be very valuable, make awesome displays, and are great cultural artifacts. Titles can be found on ebay for anywhere from $10 to $100 each.
I would love to see a book called "What heterosexuals prefer being gay?"
Check out SWEETHEARTSINNER for a wide selection of gay and lesbian themed cigarette cases, pill cases, and necklaces!
Check out this awesome "bad girl" pulp cigarette case here!
"Divorce Bait" is a pulp from 1951 featuring a gorgeous blonde temptress ready for some hot action in front of the fireplace! Some of sexiest "good girl art" GGA ever produced in the golden era of vintage lurid paperbacks!
"Men Call Her Tramp" is from 1950 and features a sexy redhead about to be made by a dashing guy in a suit! These gals go from bad to worse in these vintage paperback tales!

ORIGINAL Rare 1950s Vintage Issue of Presenting Bettie Page At Home Magazine. Circa 1955 but not dated. 30 GLOSSY pages. Published by Burmel. Betty Page was one of the world's most famous pinup models. I consider the classic Kitten with a Whip pose to be one of the most iconic images ever made.
PLEASE NOTE: Pink arrows are digitally inserted to protect the innocent.
While we do not offer Bettie Page designs on our cigarette cases, due to copyright issues, we do offer plenty of great pinup designs on cigarette cases, pill cases, and necklaces! Check out our stores!

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s in Britain and in the late 1950s in the United States. Pop art presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising, news, etc. In pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, and/or combined with unrelated material. The concept of pop art refers not as much to the art itself as to the attitudes that led to it.
Pop art employs aspects of mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects. It is widely interpreted as a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expressionism, as well as an expansion upon them.And due to its utilization of found objects and images it is similar to Dada. Pop art is aimed to employ images of popular as opposed to elitist culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any given culture, most often through the use of irony. It is also associated with the artists' use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques.

SATANIC PENTAGRAM NECKLACES at SWEETHEARTSINNER
Satanists use a pentagram with two points up, often inscribed in a double circle, with the head of a goat inside the pentagram. This is referred to as the Sigil of Baphomet. They use it much the same way as the Pythagoreans, as Tartaros literally translates from Greek as a "Pit" or "Void" in Christian terminology (the word is used as such in the Bible, referring to the place where the fallen angels are fettered). The Pythagorean Greek letters are most often replaced by the Hebrew letters לויתן forming the name Leviathan. Less esoteric LaVeyan Satanists use it as a sign of rebellion or religious identification, the three downward points symbolising rejection of Trinity.
