Vintage Men's Mags #30: Naughty Nylons and Shocking Stockings



The 50s and 60s were big into the nylon thing.  Call it a fetish if you like, but it was an innocent male interest compared to the hardcore boom of the 70s.  Once boundaries were removed and skin rags started leaving absolutely nothing to the imagination, the "stocking and nylon thing" seemed...... well, just a little quaint.

This is not to say men stopped buying these magazines entirely; but, amid the so-called "Bush Wars" going on between Hustler, Penthouse, and Playboy, stockings ceased to be shocking.

Well, I'm not big on the hardcore stuff, and Retrospace isn't the place for all that, anyway.  So, here's a post bursting at the seams with nylon/stocking oriented girly magazine covers. Enjoy!

    1. Women actually wore their panties that way, Think "toilet" and you'll see why.

    2. they're over the stockings and garters so they can be slipped off and the garters and stockings stay on for play.
      Also, many ladies of that era were au natural under their skirts with the stockings that weren't directly connected to the panties.

    3. Also, those granny panties are quite sheer for a cover picture... you can tell the carpet doesn't match the drapes...

  4. Nylons aside, the models all look so...HUMAN. Models in fashion catalogs also looked that way in those days. Nowadays the models (and actresses) have such taught, plastic botoxed faces and cheekbone implants and those fake puffed up lips that nobody finds attractive, yet are somehow de rigeur.

  5. Can't decide which is my favourite tag line; "lessons in leg language" or "flattery will get you somewhere"

  6. I for one read Naughty Nylons for the thought provoking editorials and biting political satire.

  7. The 1960s: when lingerie could be both alluring and terrifying.

  8. As another commentator noted, it's amazing how full-bodied these women were. Not fat, but big breasted and just substantial all around.

  9. The girl in 13 the Satin Showplace looks like she's about to go psychotic and kill some body. And check out those headlines:

    Double Brandy in the flesh
    The wet magic of Joyce (wonder if they mean James Joyce like that guy's quote above?)
    The Call Boy
    Who aint modest
    The girl in the grass hut
