Vintage Gams #2: Old-School Gams


"She was the kind of broad who could turn you on with just a wink. And she winked a lot. She had on a tight cocktail dress that plunged deeper than an Acapulco cliff diver, but with less responsibility, and gams that started some way above her head and finished three stories below."
Ah, yes. once upon a time it was the stems that stoked the fire of the American Male.  Back before things got all hardcore and X-rated, gams ruled the day.  By the 1970s, Deep Throat was playing in every major city and skin magazines left nothing to the imagination.  The Sexual Revolution ushered in the miniskirt which was a boon for the gams parade.... but the films and print media of the time left gams in the dust in favor of more (ahem) intimate regions of the female anatomy.

Well, the male brain hasn't significantly changed in the last 100,000 plus years, so I'm confident the "leg men" are still around.  With a Miniskirt Monday gracing the front page of Retrospace each week, you may be inclined to think this site is becoming some bastion for the female leg.  Well, there are certainly worse things to be called.




Anyway, I think it's high time we started offering up some gams sans miniskirt.  This round will strictly be B&W old-school gams.  Enjoy!

  2. My husband LOVES this post. He is very much a "leg man." Now, he did manage to fall in love with and marry a girl who has two tree trunks. Then again, I fell in love with and married him, and he doesn't like The Beatles.

  3. You can bet that collectively these women serve up more pancakes than an IHOP on a Saturday morning.

  4. Ah, back in the day when we were expected to have a little style and not just stand before the camera.

    The gal in picture #3 is Marie' Suzette. She worked in the French Underground during the war. She would "find out things" from the Nazi camps and report back to the resistance. We never asked her how. We did not want to know.

  8. #8, I've really got to get my wife a French maid costume with fishnets! She has great legs. My wife that is.

    #17 really catches my eye even though it's one of the most tame ones here. 22-23 is particularity nice also.
