The New York Review of Sex and Politics, Vol. 1, No. 9, July 15, 1969 : Our Especially Clean Issue

NY: New York Feed Co., 1969. Edited by D. Melmoth and published by S. Edward and Steven Heller. Unbound tabloid format, 18 x 11-1/2 in. 24pp., illus., primarily in b&w, and printed on better-than-newsprint quality paper stock. Mild toning; light edgewear. Very good or better.

A notorious issue of this underground paper of sex and culture, its publication having resulted in staff members being twice arrested and brought before the New York State Supreme Court on pornography charges, which they were about to beat owing to the fact that the issue's sexual content consisted entirely of innuendo (i.e. no genitalia). Features include "The Decline of Sex in Rock" by Robert Somma; "Sex at the Fights: How a Pornographer fell in Love with Mrs. Benvenuti," by Ray Schultz; "Block Girls : True Story of Slim Fingers, Master Pump of the All" by C. J. Avery; "The Midnight Cowboy Meets Lonesome Cowboy," a film review by Gregory Battcock; "Sex on Tip Toes," a piece on the Rudolf Nureyev and the ballet; etc.
