Posted on February 13th, 2017 in 1960s,Celebrities,Movies,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution,Women's Liberation by Terry Hamburg

  I was one steamy baby boomer, with the emphasis on “baby.” In my first and most famous role, I played a fourteen-year-old nymph seducing a dignified middle-aged professor who falls ga-ga in lust with me. Just so happens I was the same age when cast. For the role I beat out over 800 mostly older boomerRead the Rest…

Posted on September 9th, 2015 in 1950s,Celebrities,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

  I was never a baby boomer household name, but Madonna, Rihanna, and the Pussycat Dolls were all imitating me.   I was one of the earliest Playboy Playmates.

Boomers Have A Close Encounter Of The Third Kind
