February 1983 was a good month.
I was born February 18, 1983. XD
I feel like I should be giving you two a change of diapers.
would have been great if all had been more or less badass ... just to print these out and stick them on a 2012 calender ... 2013 would be funnier though.
The funny thing is that I would't even need to stick them on a 2012 calendar. The days all line up. I could have been using it all year! 1983 calendars can be used in 2012!
Sweeeeet. Man, what happened to rockstars? Could you imagine anybody big posing with porn stars in Oui nowadays? Or anybody who isn't Sasha Grey anyways.
Lemmy would probably still do it.
Yeah, I hear you. Not too many of todays current crop of "rock stars" would have the brass labias to just pose in a stroke mag like this.
The world really has gotten increasingly conservative over the past 20 years. For better or worse.
In some ways far more liberal, but yeah, in others far more conservative.
It's a weird dichotomy. On the one had porn is much more prevalent and pervasive than it's ever been, but society on a whole seems to treat it with even more guilt and shame and anger.
Growing up in the early 80s it wasn't uncommon to see occasional casual nudity in a PG film, as long as it wasn't salacious or sleezy (see the topless mother in Clash of the Titans or Jenny Agutter's full nudity in Walkabout. After the PG-13 rating was introduced it had the bizarre effect of decreasing movie nudity across the board. It's now rare to see breasts in an R rated movie (anything more and you're threatened with an NC-17 rating). Meanwhile the PG-13 rating has made violence and gore more common place and acceptable. You see stuff in PG-13 films that would be in R films 20 years ago, and stuff in R films has gotten incredibly graphic.
A regular episode of CSI has more gore and violence than you're normally see in an R rated movie 15-20 years ago. Basically, sex and porn is more shameful and polarizing than ever, and violence and gore more mainstream acceptable. Making it even more schizophrenic is how the media alternates ever increasingly between fear mongering about protecting the innocence of children and teenagers, while simultaneously promoting the glamorization of teen sexuality.
It's a weird world.
In other areas of life too. Growing up the the 80s, it was one of the ultimate taboo for a young person to be labled as GAY. In large parts of the continent that doesn't hold nearly as much of a stigma anymore. There are all kinds of resources for the gay community now. Sure, kids still commit suicide because they get bullied for being gay, but trust me young people -- it's *nothing* like it was before. Just like society was far more tolerant of homosexuality in the 80s compared to the 50s. Society in that respect gets more and more liberal.
Other than Duran Duran they all look wasted as fuck.
And Duran Duran look like a bunch of drunk lesbians.
It's been a good time!!! Thanx!
All those guys are still around, they should do a reunion calendar with the same models.
Fantastic idea! Grey pubes all around.
For a second I couldn't figure out where the fuck Vince Neil was in that Motley photo.
Now I feel like Steven Tyler... ;)
