The Lady and the Lusty Scamp by Jeff Dunas



The month after The Housebreakers, Jeff Dunas was back with another boy/girl Love Set in Penthouse.  This was only the second time that the magazine had had two successive boy/girl pictorials.




Appearing in the January 1977 issue there would be only three boy/girl pictorials in 1977 compared with four in 1976.  But then 1977 would see the most girl/girl pictorials; a record five.




This was undoubtedly the first Penthouse pictorial to feature a goat.  The story being that the heroine and her brother were taking their goat to an "animal healer" by water but after being caught in a current they were "rescued" by a "ruffian or outlaw" who, not surprisingly grabbed the girl and left the brother to float away.  From this picture it also appears that he took the goat on board too.  Perhaps to serve as a substitute if the girl jumped overboard. 




Anyway, this being one of Penthouse's big budget period pieces we have a full sized pirate ship as a location. This was shot, like many of the pictures in the pictorial in a mock through-a-telescope way.  Perhaps it's supposed to be the view the brother had of his poor sister as he floated away without even the goat to keep him company. 








Also, most unusually the pictorial has three out of eighteen pictures consisting of just the pirate, posing in a very dubious pink shirt.  Although it has to be said that pink did not become identified as particularly a "girls" colour until the late nineteenth century.  These shots would have been more at home in Penthouse's sister magazine for women, Viva.




Oddly, in some of the pictures the pirate is depicted with an eye patch, although for the most part this isn't seen again.  This is also the first Penthouse pictorial which depicts a scene of coercion as the girl is, at first, unwilling to succumb to the pirates advances.




The accompanying text for the pictorial (which was unusually long) was written in the first person from the girl's point of view.  "I became very furious and in a trembling voice, demanded to be immediately released.  The blackguard only grinned more broadly and plucked up my skirt with his sword..."






The girl's struggle continues as "I fought in vain, for the scamp paid not a whit of attention to my entreaties and answered only by roughly tearing off my clothes, forcing a goblet of potent liquid down my throat and, threatening to summon his entire crew to enjoy my favors."





So now we have physical assault, drugging and threats against the girl as well.  Whatever is in the drink seems to work pretty quickly, however, as she is soon indulging in some passionate kissing.






The rest of the pictorial moves away from the deck of the pirate ship down below to the pirate's cabin where he soon removes both her and his clothes.  The whole feature was shot in pretty diffuse soft-focus and its sometimes quite difficult to see what's going on in some of these pictures.




Without his bandana the pirate looks alarmingly like one of the Bee Gees.  Who knew that men had such big hair in days of yore?  Despite the Beverly Hills hairdresser vibe it doesn't mean that he can't enjoy the girls succulent breast and rear end though.




The girl is still demanding to be freed but "He roared with mirth and buried his head between my legs, licking me until I thought I would go mad with pleasure."  Or, more accurately, he actually kisses her leg where her thigh meets her bottom.  The shot looks more explicit than it is.






Again, the angles don't look quite right in the faux intercourse shots but the text makes up for it in lusty, bodice-ripper style:  "With a sardonic smile at my discomposed demeanor, he began slowly to pull my legs apart, trying to force his large, rock-hard organ inside of me.  As his thrusts began to hit home, I again thought I might faint; but the feeling passed, to be replaced by one of delicious ecstasy!"




The text concludes by revealing that the girl happily stays with the pirate and gives us this post-coital shot.  This was cut from the UK edition; probably because the girl's face was just that bit too close to the pirates organ.  Despite the male model boldly displaying his penis this couples pictorial is remarkable in that it was the only one where the female model doesn't show her pubic hair.

So, quite a successful period piece with, perhaps, too much soft focus, too much of the pirate on his own and not enough of the lovely girl, who actually doesn't appear at all in five out of the eighteen pictures.

Next up, from the following month's issue, we will have the first lesbian pictorial of the year in Penthouse's second ever three girl shoot by Ken Marcus.

    One of the hotter early pictorials, though the "pirate ship" is clearly a Chinese Junk, no doubt some rich Cali pseudo-hippy's houseboat. Groovy.

  5. Does anyone know the name of the female model or if any unpublished pictures of this pictorial have ever surfaced? This was the first issue of Penthouse for me and always wondered who the young lady was.

  6. As a youngster, I had come across this mag, probably my first as well. I carefully cut out this story and kept it for many years, quite seductive.
