Classic 1940s or 50s Topless Pinup Art (Part 1)

When I was struggling to survive right after graduating law school, I worked cleaning out an elderly woman’s house after she was taken to a nursing home.  We referred to her as a pack rat then, but she would be known as a hoarder today.  One of the treasures I found and misappropriated was a deck of playing cards from the 1940s or 50s featuring topless pinups.

I dug them out and used them as inspiration for my recent pinup photo shoot.  What I love about these models is how they seem to be authenticallyhaving fun.  There is none of that overt and over-the-top sexiness used by twenty-something females in selfies posted on Instagram, which can come across as a desperate ploy for validation.

There is nothing about these classic pinups that seems desperate.  These models demonstrate that sexy doesn’t necessarily mean slutty.

  1. I even remember playing cards with these. It was quite a distraction.
