I found this image on a website devoted to Pulp magazines and the 1950/60s 'Man Adventure' publications that were their successors, the picture (Apart from the apparently obligatory busty women...) I think is meant to illustrate an article on the Bruneval Raid, which was carried out by the British, not a random selection of lumberjacks and as for the German Radar, what the...!!?!

A lot of barely clothed men there - I guess if the busty women don't do it for you...

I’m sure there was ample competition to attract customers of various repressed sexualities (I’m presuming the actual content was a bit of a let down). But who doesn’t like their junk history with a hefty dose of homoeroticism....

And for those who want busty women (and not those Nazi She-Devils...) with guns...

The technical term is 'Honey Trap'...

A un pastel de rica miel

Cien mil moscas acudieron

Y por golosas murieron

Presas de patas en el



To a cake of rich honey One hundred thousand flies came And for sweet tooth died paw prey in it (Sorry for the translation, is a poem from the 17th century);)

Oh please. Forget the so-called Baby Boomers. I was there. Such trash was not required reading.

Yes, the new requirement* from the Dictators of All that is True and Right requires masculinity to be seen as a bad thing. Not as something normal.

Say what you will about the dubious historical accuracy and downright silliness, these nevertheless hearken back to an era when "masculinity" was not contractually obligated to be paired with "toxic."
There has always been toxic behavior with toxic people attaching themselves to whatever image they believe to be "in" at the time (or more to the point, what they believe will attract sexual partners or how ever they qualify success). In the 90s it was toxic metro-sexualism with toxic scumbags pretending to be more feminist than any woman. Even worse these days is examples of some women "leaning in" i.e. mimicking the behavior of toxic males, in the belief it will aid them in succeeding in a mans world.

What? Forget the word "toxic." It's the wrong word. And double forget the fake term "metro-sexualism." I was there in the 90s and that term only meant something to a handful of people. I recommend not letting total strangers run your life. Be good to other people. That's it.

Man's world? And no women? More wrong thinking. Be nice to men and women.

The purpose of these publications was to attract young men with illustrations of beautiful women in danger and to prepare them psychologically for the next war, but psychologists and Soviet propaganda were much better and in the end managed to turn them into hippies and deserters.

What's wrong with:)

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WANNqr-vcx0


One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
Call Alice
When she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go

And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"

I was in the 90s too, back then I was a macho dinosaur, overly conservative, militaristic and apparently sexist according to the "SNAG / metro sexual" lads. I'm still me, but apparently I'm now a wishy washy leftie trendy and not blokey enough in a conservative masculine world. Some of those making these observations are quite literally the same people, just older and apparently senile enough to have forgotten what they were once like, and I have the photos to prove it!
