SNAPSHOT OF BABY BOOMER LIFE

Posted on April 14th, 2011 in 1990s,Crime,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

Sammy set up next to me every month at the Coral Gables Antiques Show in Miami. A parade of sexy baby boomer babes would saunter up and give him a kiss. Finally, I had to ask. “What’s your secret?” Sammy was 50, fat, and bald. “They’re my girls,” he winked. Sammy managed a bevy of strippersRead the Rest…

BABY BOOMER WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

Posted on March 8th, 2011 in 1970s,1980s,Collectibles,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

Reverie: 1980 I asked her out three times. Three excuses, including the lame and insulting: “I have to change my hair color that night.” I can take a hint, but she was always so friendly and flirty. Plus, everything a baby boomer dream girl should be: smart, liberated, sexy – not to mention “legs thatRead the Rest…

BABY BOOMER SEX BASH IS A BUST

Posted on February 7th, 2011 in 1950s,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

    It was a baby boomer coming-of-age party. At 14 years-old, none of us had seen bare breasts except in National Geographic. As for “between-the-legs,” only a ghastly view. I discovered some pre-op photos in a medical book my doctor father kept in the attic. I showed it to my friends. One look wasRead the Rest…

BABY BOOMER CELEBRITY SCANDAL: WHO AM I?

Posted on November 30th, 2010 in 1970s,1980s,Celebrities,Crime,Midlife,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

You probably know me as the notorious “Hollywood Madame.” I regard it as a pop culture badge of honor. My exclusive client list, never revealed, looked like a Hollywood Boomer Who’s Who. I served 21 months in jail. No regrets. What I did isn’t a real crime. Unfortunately, my father, a prominent pediatrician, was disgracedRead the Rest…

BABY BOOMER SEXUAL REVOLUTION: BOB & CAROL & TED & ALICE

Posted on October 31st, 2010 in 1960s,1970s,Celebrities,Counterculture/New Age,Movies,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

The tag line read: “Consider the Possibilities.” Today, it’s hard to believe the movie was regarded so cutting edge and titillating. Remember, it’s 1970 and the impact of rebellious boomer ideas is just beginning to penetrate Main Street. The plot: An educated, affluent couple attend an “self-discovery” weekend at a New Age retreat and are Read the Rest…

FIRST BOOMER GLIMPSE OF BARE KNEE

Posted on September 11th, 2010 in 1950s,Fashion,Music,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

BABY BOOMER REVERIE: 1958 A moment seared in my adolescent boomer brain forever. I was walking upstairs for algebra class. As usual, I passed Marsha on the way. She was “bad,” and getting “badder” fast. That day she appeared with a skirt above the knee—the first girl in my high school that dared to crossRead the Rest…

“I know it when I see it.” Supreme Court Justice Stewart’s definition of “obscenity.” What could be more exciting and scandalous? A gorgeous (36D-25-36), wildly enthusiastic, underage XXX star? Of course, no one knew (ha! ha!) I was 15 when I started. You might say I put the “baby” in baby boomer X-movies. I was livingRead the Rest…

GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN

BABY BOOMER REVERIE: 1960 IT WAS GREEK TO ME Pledging in the early 1960s was hell for baby boomers. The final stretch of the fraternity pledge semester is still called “Hell Week.” For boomer girls, it was more like heck. I  got an inside earful from a Phi Sig I dated. Natalie never stopped complaining.Read the Rest…

FRAT DAYS

Posted on April 12th, 2010 in 1950s,1960s,Pop Culture,Sexual Revolution by Terry Hamburg

BABY BOOMER REVERIE: 1963 FIESTA! It was the pledge class party of the year. Our theme—South of the Border, a popular choice in the early and pre-boomer college scene. Guys wore torn old clothes and sombreros. Most sported blacked out teeth and drooping Zapata moustaches. A few came with rifles and bullet straps around theirRead the Rest…

Baby Boomer Midlife: Cougars on the Prowl

    What’s good for the boomer goose is good for the boomer gander. The sexual revolution of the 1960s isn’t over. Nor is women’s liberation. Meet the cougar. Are we having an epidemic of female boomer chronophilia? The male boomer version is regarded as a natural part of life. If a man can haveRead the Rest…
