Three vintage adult magazines, and 1 calendar, featuring erotic & sultry photography of women in lingerie, at the beach, in animal print swimsuits, lounging on wicker, at in-home bars, and other standards of the era. Notable for featuring drink recipes and drink-related fiction throughout, backing the title aptly, with few to no ads, even in later issues when distributed by Parliament News. Pre-Hippie era pinups, mixology, and little Femlin-style cartoon throughout, w/ photographers & staff largely uncredited, photography possibly Elmer Batters, Ron Vogel, or Keith Bernard.
