Those sex-mad 60s

The most bizarre show was a political opera where we had to wear Marie Antoinette-type costumes with silver wigs, tight bodices, white stockings with suspender belts and little white shoes. The stage was covered in mesh with an orchestra underneath, and you knew if you put one foot wrong you’d end up in the cymbals. On the night, Dee Dee breathed in and her boobs spilled out right in front of the king of Belgium. He never stopped smiling for the rest of the show.

Sort of thing that would be written into the script these days, isn’t it?

  2. US HS dating in 1958:

    Picking up Peggy Sue for a date in ’58, Sam was greeted at the door by her mother who asked: “So, what are you’ll planning for tonight?”

    Sam replied “We’re going to a movie and maybe a walk on the beach.”

    Mom replied: “Peggy likes to screw, you know.”

    Incredulous, Sam asked, “Really?”

    “Yes,” said the mother. “She’d screw all night if we let her!”

    “Thanks!” and Sam started making other plans.

    Peggy Sue came out and the mother said as they left: “Have fun, kids,”

    In 30 minutes a completely disheveled Peggy Sue burst into the house slamming the door behind her.

    “The TWIST, Mom!” she hollered. “THE DAMN DANCE IS CALLED THE TWIST!!

    It was sent to me. I edited it to make it shorter and I think therefore better, but was not my idea. I do remember the twist though, and some moms back then seemed a little naive and a few knew what’s up and seemed to relive their youth via their daughters. Dad’s seemed to have no idea what to do and kinda stayed out of the way, except for one who chased me out of the house yelling “I’m gonna put my foot so far up your axx it’ll break your shoulder blades.” I’ll never forget that dad.
