Seller ID 006359
N.d., circa 1940s or1950s. The back of cards have a conventional geometric/abstract design for playing cards of the day. On the fronts are lurid photographs of men and women engaged in sexual intercourse, fellatio and cunnilingus, masturbation, and three ways. Some of the scenes depicted involve lesbian sex. Each of the 54 cards -- the standard deck, plus two jokers -- has a different black and white photograph. The same "models" reappear in numerous photographs. One is unlikely to be smitten with the beauty of these models, nor will even afficianados of pornography necessarily find the photos irresistible turn-ons. We see the point of the card deck as having been a naughty novelty. In an unmarked white card box, as surely in which they originally came. Condition: box has soiling on one side.
