This is just a short Tribute to Bettie Page from the 1950’s. it is a look into our past. Lucky for me the pictures were still around in the early to mid-1960’s. Back then you just didn’t see pictures displaying what we now call BDSM.
Ah yes, as a young boy I wanted to spank her. Yes, I know she was carrying the whips in pics or often rope but I wanted to take them away from her use them on her.
Hey, it was a good pastime for a young boy on the farm. Of course, I didn’t know anything about BDSM at the time. I just knew the though of spanking her or whipping her was very appealing to me.
I found a 1950’s Playboy with her in it and put it under my bed.
Many of us “old guys” remember her and just wanted to share it.
We all need role “models.” she had whips and rope and such so she had to be a perfect one.
These were simple pictures by today’s standards, but enough to cause a young boy’s imagination to go wild.
What I didn’t know as a child was that she helped led the way to sexual freedom and bdsm. she battles in the press, the Churches and in Courts. she should be a hero to us in the lifestyle. she had a long struggle. It became almost unbearable for her. She was beaten down by all the pressure of the press and Courts.. But she led the way for us.
Once in New York she refused to destroy her photographs or pled guilty to indecency charges. she fought the system in the 1950’s. it was unheard of then.
Thank you Bettie for your pictures and your struggle.
