Babes in Joyland from Chic February 1978

Another girl'girl set from Chic in this post and this one is, supposedly, set in a private school. perhaps in the past, by the entertainingly retro looking underwear on display.  It could not be more different in style from Steamed Clams, the last one we posted. This one is credited to James Baes.

This pictorial comes from February 1978.  As you can see from the slightly cropped scan, Chic was still, in this, its fifteenth issue, using its slightly over-sized format, compared to the other the time.

What is noteworthy about this one is the amount of genital touching the girls indulge in.  Penthouse, for example, which had really pioneered the two girl set in 1970 with Two Women (also photographed, coincidentally, by James Baes) wouldn't get even close to this for another eighteen months.

At first glance it looks like the two girls are touching themselves here, until you see which side of the hands the thumbs are.  Their expressions help give the shot some erotic punch, too; especially the girl on the left who is very much to Triple P's taste.

Another bold hand between the legs shot, here. In most men's magazines at the time the two girl pictorials tended not to be as explicit as regards revealing poses or strong interaction but Chic was obviously not worried about this at all.

As usual there were a very few number of pictures for this one, just five, of which there were three double page spreads. Sadly, we haven't been able to find any outtakes for it.  The final shot is a nice pile of rear aspect displaying girls, old fashioned stockings  and white rumpled dresses.  Splendid!
