“Not Dirty, Just Spicy”

May 6th, 2010 · 7 Comments


The Ullage Group undrapes its seventh event, “Not Dirty, Just Spicy.”  We will examine the curious genre of the risqué and titillating, but not quite smutty: saucy postcards, suggestive songs, spicy pulps, and other specimens of the sub-obscene.  Doug Skinner will demonstrate the sustained double entendre.  Anthony Matt will speak on the phenomenon of stereoscopic stag parties of the 1950s, and show several examples of 3D pinup photography.  Lisa Hirschfield will take us to task on the old-fashioned art of spanking.  It’s at Jalopy Theater, 315 Columbia St., Brooklyn; on Sunday, May 16 at 5:00 pm.  Admission is only $5.  Directions to Jalopy can be found here.  Recommended for furtive, sniggering adults.

    dog gone it! I won’t be around for this perv fest! I will be in Odessa, Lviv and Vienna. I do hope that it will repeat sometime after June! Sounds great.

    Have fun! While you trot the globe, I’ll be bent over the gramophone, transcribing old 78s of burlesque routines…

    Hello, Doug, it was my son’s 14th birthday Sunday and I should have taken his to this for educative purposes, but I failed at being a good mother. I met you the other night at the Carousel event. A bientôt! Hoping for another event soon.

    Thanks, Angela! And nice to hear from you, Arabella. I suspect your son might have been the ideal age for this event. A la prochaine!
