Kissing Venuses 12: Hina and Manu by Paolo Curto

 Some of the most popular posts on our blogs have been those featuring Polynesian lovelies, so what better tonic to a depressingly wet day in England than two kissing Venuses photographed in Polynesia.

These pictures appeared in the August 1983 edition of Italian magazine Playmen and feature, according to them, Hina and Manu.

The pictures were shot by Italian photographer Paolo Curto, who specialises in photographs and paintings which feature the sea and, quite often, young women.  In fact, one of the women here, Hina, features in one of his paintings.  

Born near Venice, he lived in Polynesia for a time but now resides in Sardinia.  His work had appeared in many well known magazines such as: National Geographic, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Stern, Photo, Paris Match and many others.  These days he does a lot of work for the tourism industry.

This final one is lovely!


  1. Even though it's warm and sunny here, my day is made thanks to Manu (and yourself, of course), :)

  2. I may be mistaken but I believe the girl on the right in the 1st & last pics is none other than Marlon Brando's daughter Cheyenne.

    1. I doubt it. She would only have been 13 at the time the pictorial was published,
