“Skinned Alive” by Jemma McLean

Again with our fascination for anatomical fetish fashions…

This link comes from the ever-tantalizing StreetAnatomy blog, describing the work:

This beautiful collection by Jemma Marie McLean, called Skinned Alive the Anatomical Structure is inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s anatomical drawings.

Jemma founded Purdy Corsetry after being disappointed by the quality and selection of what she found in New Zealand.  She knew with her wealth of experience in sewing and degree in Fashion design from Massey University that she could make the best corsets possible.

Purdy Corsetry is located in Central Wellington, New Zealand.  View all her latest work via Facebook!

More Vintage X-Ray Fetishism

We can’t just get enough of those Naughty, Naughty Roentgen Rays. The above commercial, from 1930s Germany, nicely illustrates the fears (and titillation) surrounding Dr. Roentgen’s invention, then goes on to assure the modern woman that rumors of “Roentgetn glasses,” been true, she would be well served by the elegance of contemporary Felina lingerie.

And these fears were real enough to sustain a brief market in anti-voyeueristic dress manufacture as evidenced by this ad from 1896 for “the perfect dress interlining.”

The seamy peekaboo undercurrents associated with the medical marvel are likewise nicely evoked by this photo found on one of our favorite Tumblr blogs, Sutured Infection.

And from the blog Glamor Daze we some American footage from the 1940s that reminds us of that X-rays had much to recommend them to foot fetishists too who might have enjoyed hanging around shoe stores where X-ray scanners were kept around to aid in fitting and attract curious  consumers.

Finally, a bit of verse, also penned by Lawrence K. Russel and published by Life Magazine in 1896:

x-ray-poem

She is so tall, so slender; and her bones– Those frail phosphates, those carbonates of lime– Are well produced by cathode rays sublime; By oscillations, amperes and by ohms, Her dorsal vertebrae are no concealed By epidermis, but are well revealed.

Around her ribs, those beauteous twenty-four, Her flesh a halo makes, misty in lime, Her noseless, eyeless face looks into mine, And I but whisper, “Sweetheart, je t’adore.” Her white and gleaming teeth at me do laugh, Ah! lovely, cruel, sweet cathodagraph!

Naughty, Naughty Roentgen Rays

I’m full of daze,
Shock and amaze;
For nowadays
I hear they’ll gaze
Thro’ cloak and gown — and even stays,
These naughty, naughty Roentgen Rays.

This little ditty from 1896 sums up the prurient interest that Wilhelm Roentgen’s invention of X-ray technology immediately… err… “aroused.”

By the 1930s the X-ray was still exotic enough to be exploited by the pulps as a tool employed by the mad scientist in his tireless experimentation upon voluptuous semi-clad female subjects. (images via pbase.com/silverghost1951.)

The fascination lingered through the 1950s and into the 1960s as evidenced by this classic Gil Elvegren pinup “Inside Story/Overexposure” and the success of “Sea-Monkey” creator, Nazi, and mail-order huckster Harold Von Braunhut‘s naughty-minded “X-ray Specs.”

Today, of course, these salacious fantasies have been all-too graphically realized in the work of Belgian artist Wim Delvoye, whose radiographic images of various acts sex acts have been posted to death since they first appeared on the in 2001. We prefer the more evocative X-ray pinup calendar that appeared in 2010 as a promotional item for medical imaging company Eizo, and has of late been satirically recast as “The Miss TSA Calendar.”

Lesbian Nurses: Which is Right for You?

It’s Nurse Paperback Friday again and time for your opinions on the ever-titlating subgenre of lesbian nurses.

Only scratching the surface here, folks….

les-gaynurses

1) The Gay Nurses.  Proof that the cap is always the last to come off.

les-nursesquarters

2) Nurses’ Quarters by Sylvia Erskine.  OK, maybe the lesbianism is only  hinted at on the cover of this  “realistic story,” but we can take a hint.

les-nursesquarters2

3) Nurses’ Quarters by Lee Morell.   Is this the same book after the author asked for a name change?    This one is advertised as “daring” rather than “realistic.”  More importantly, it uses the word “depraved” on the cover.

les-lesbiansinwhite14) Lesbians in White.  Again with the “crisp uniforms” contrast!  We think the author is doing a little more than “whispering about” it though.

The Pitter-Patter of Plastic Feet

koken-preg
We’ve already exploited that collective cringe produced by Resusci Anne’s clammily compliant rubber mouth. Now if only we could get our hands on her knocked up cousin:  the Koken Full-Body Pregnancy Simulator.

This one comes from Japan, and the website demurs on price, so we can presume it’s in the “if you have to ask… (then you’re probably some kind of pervert not affiliated with any legitimate institution of learning)…range.

But by jingo, look what she comes with: lifelike fetus with rubbery amniotic sac, interchangeable vaginal openings to simulate various gauge love tunnels, breasts and abdomen that respond realistically to diagnostic palpation, and replaceable soft silicon insets to practice suturing up those nasty perineal tears so you won’t have to practice on a sherbet-colored block of whipped Jell-O.

And she cleans up easy!  According to her FAQ, just a quick sponging with detergent or ethanol followed by a baby powder pat down should do the job.

As if they’d already anticipated some sort of twisted Hans Bellmer torture session, they warn, “being a model there will be no complaints if roughly handled. Do not push or pull the model with unreasonable force.”

So if you had your heart set on a screaming model, you may be disappointed, but they’re still eager for your business.

“If you live in Japan, we also keep some models that can be provided on a loan basis.”

Is that really wise?
