Bedtime Story from Chic, July 1978


Time for another Chic couples pictorial and, in fact bedtime for this pictorial, featuring a man and a woman on a bed (obviously).  It has to be said that not a great deal of effort has gone into the set dressing of this one but then it is all about those blue and white striped bedclothes.


I have a number of outtakes from this pictorial (thanks to my friend C from Toronto) which originally appeared in Chic's July 1978 issue.   Rather than putting them all at the end I will try to integrate them into some sort of logical order.  Outtakes will be indicated as OT; all other pictures appeared in the magazine.



Our lady soon gets distracted from her TV watching by the naked man climbing onto her bed, not surprisingly.  Some nice neck kissing and breast squeezing here.

She has lost her (rather fetching) French knickers and her man probes at her nicely framed pussy here.  


Here we have a not quite cunnilingus shot with the implication that the curly headed fellow will be up there next.  She acts as if he already is.


After a not quite cunnilingus shot we have not quite fellatio shots as well.  In these two she is in the process of working her way down his body while presenting her nether regions to the camera.

This one is a bit bolder and he actually has his fingers on her moist looking pussy while licking her inner thigh.  It is all about suggesting what isn't, in reality, being shown.



Usually these couples pictorial have a couple of copulation pictures but in this case, although they were shot, they didn't appear in the final pictorial in the magazine.  Once again the actual angles aren't really correct but they give the impression.

This one, which did appear in the magazine, is even more suggestive and, as it involved genital touching quite unusual and something Chic had only first shown the previous month.


A new departure for Chic here in that they make the couples pictorial the centrefold one and included the man in the gatefold.  Oui had done this earlier and were bombarded with negative comments but Chic persisted and had several more like this in 1978.  She is touching his cock here again, in the most assertive penile display so far in Chic.


Quite a nice pictorial from these two, although she appears to have made him gone a bit cross-eyed, not surprisingly, perhaps.  Lovely smile from her to finish.

The Victory of Faith by St George Hare

The Victory of Faith (1890)

This gently sensual picture actually has a religious theme and depicts two Christian women imprisoned in a Roman amphitheatre, while barely visible lions glower through the bars in the background.  The white girl is tied to a stone pillar on which a cross has been scratched. The dark skinned woman is supposed to be her Ethiopian maid with them both being due to be thrown to the lions the next day.

The Gilded Cage (1908)

Hare (1857-1933) was an Irish painter who produced a number of pictures of chained women for religiously uplifting paintings.  This picture was well received at the time and is now on display in the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne to where it was donated in 1905.  Their tender touching of each other may be intended to depict their shared faith but now it seems likely that Hare copied the pose from a French erotic postcard!

Nymph and Satyr by Bruno Zach (1891-1945)

Another nymph and satyr piece today,with this passionate bronze by Bruno Zach.  Our authentically goat-legged satyr is munching down appreciatively on the nymph's pussy, which she seems to be enjoying very much!

Bruno Zach was born in Zhtomyr, Ukraine (then part of Russia) in 1891 but emigrated to Vienna where he studied at the Vienna Academy.  He worked in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles and while noted for his sporting bronzes his figures of women and some erotica has ensured high prices today for original bronzes. 

This work probably dates from about 1930.  We will have some more Zach bronzes here and on Venus Observations shortly.
