For Volume 3 author/editor Dian Hanson searched the world for the mass-market men’s magazines of the 1960s. With the international economy on the upswing and censorship in a losing battle with lust the sixties were a time of great political, social and moral change. Suddenly hundreds of men’s magazine titles were right out in public, openly sold on newsstands all over the world.
Volume 3 begins with an explosion of new American men’s magazines following the redefinition of US obscenity laws in the late fifties. We examine the enormous impact of Playboy, not only on American titles, but on magazines worldwide. This is the decade when France finally declines as a great force in magazine production; England starts to show her pervy side; Argentina embraces burlesque; and Germany once again blends political activism with nudity. By 1965 even Australia has a booming men’s magazine industry. The volume ends with a look at those great back-of-the-magazine ads for party pills and the first inflatable “dates”.
