Bettie Page Dies

Fri Dec 12, 2008 5:13 am

Classic pin-up model Bettie Page passed away December 11. She was the queen of the racy nudie pin-up genre.

Fair use quote from The New York Times:

"Bettie Page, a legendary pinup girl whose photographs in the nude, in bondage and in naughty-but-nice poses appeared in men’s magazines and private stashes across America in the 1950s and set the stage for the sexual revolution of the rebellious ’60s, died Thursday in Los Angeles. She was 85."

The full obituary can be found at:

Rest in peace sweet Bettie.

Ah! yes, I remember her well. The years do fly. I was in the service in those days.

Aww. A shame.

And for those who claim that sex was never discussed "back in the good ole' days," Ms. Page is the proof you are wrong.

What a coincidence! I was at a seminar today discussing nicotine receptors, and one of them was recently named Bettie Page.
