Eighteenth century month continues on The Seduction of Venus with this pictorial from November 1981's Hustler magazine, photographed by James Baes. In reality, as we started this theme mid-way through the month it will really be eighteenth century four weeks rather than a calendar month.
Although most of our material will originate from or be set in eighteenth century Europe we cannot forget the New World, of course. We have featured an eighteenth century-set magazine pictorial before, of course: Jeff Dunas' 1776 which appeared in Penthouse's July 1976 issue as part of its bicentennial celebrations.
Although he could be a soldier his costume is more likely to make him a militiaman or even just a backwoodsman, although the wig adds a certain formal touch. We are less certain about the authenticity of our squaw whose ornaments seem rather too brightly coloured for the period. Still, she has an authentically bushy pussy! She seems very pleased to see our soldier in this one, anyway. Maybe it's the prospect of some spit-roasted fowl. Turkey or duck?
Here, he is starting to look like he's pleased to see her too. Hustler was going back and forth (or, more properly, up and down) as to what extent it showed its male models with erections at this time. This was at the softer end, so to speak.
Much less prominent in this shot it is, nonetheless, engagingly suggestive as our squaw demonstrates that she simply can't wait for a lovely duck.
Finally, just as he is getting down to business it looks like the squaw's husband (or brother) has spotted them and lets loose a flurry of arrows, one of which appears to have hit our soldier in his rear. The success of this short pictorial is largely down to the girl whose manages to play sensuous, playful and alarmed very nicely.
