    Default The Passing of a Cult Legend

    I found out through news sources the passing of Ms. Bettie (Betty) Page. She was shall we say naughty and nice. Been known to handle a whip and chain with a length of rope, fill out a bikini with a certain kind of charm, and even decorate a Christmas tree or two. I'll stay on the bright side here, but there is the dark side that many were fond of. A brunette pin-up for the ages has gone, sadly just the pin-ups remain.

    She may have been a nice girl, but when a girl is so skinny you can see her ribs, that's bad. I did not get turned on by the shower scene in Schindler's List.

    Some guys like skinny women, some like fat. I get more by liking BOTH!

    The Fetishist Next Door
    The all-American appeal of Bettie Page

    Greg Beato | August/September 2007 Print Edition


    Bettie Page, one of America’s most enduring brands, is finally taking her inevitable place alongside Gap Kids and Auntie Anne’s Pretzels. In March a boutique bearing her name and stocked with demure polka-dot dresses and opaque ladies’ undergarments—panties, how retro!—opened in the mall at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas. In an age when Britney’s pudgy, bald sugar dish attracts more tabloid coverage than most network sitcom stars, it’s ironic, isn’t it, that the 1950s pin-up queen who helped pioneer mainstream exhibitionism may jeopardize the spontaneous celebrity vulva eruptions that now give our lives meaning?

    Bettie, say it isn’t so!



    Or, actually, please say that it is. Fifty years ago, snapshots of Page ball-gagged and hog-tied, her arched eyebrows transmitting hokey cartoon alarm, were deemed such a threat to the American way of life that they prompted a Senate investigation. By today’s standards, even Page’s most extreme photos seem charmingly chaste. But if her power to shock has lost currency, the sensibility she displayed remains as contemporary as that other beautifully upholstered mid-century masterpiece, the Eames lounge chair.
