Well a recent visit to a website that sells posters brought back some memories. There is a section showing 80s and 90s pin ups, some are of posters I got during my HS/early 20s stage and some I vaguely remember or never saw before. Here's some favorites of mine.

Maybe the first pin up I bought was a door length poster that depicted a blonde in white underwear lifting her shirt halfway up. It was a pretty popular poster at the time. Then there was my thing for models Samantha Fox and Sandra Taylor. The former was also an 80's pop singer, but she made a number of revealing posters, some of them NSFW. The later was a well endowed brunette who was one of the poster queens of the late 80's,/early 90's. She made a number of memorable posters and at least two calanders, but the one that really stood out for me was a door size poster of her in a strapless black mini skirt and high heels. She lifts part of her skirt up to her panty line, this poster came out around the time the movie "Basic Instinct" was out so the timing couldn't have been better. But perhaps my favorite poster of all was one that showed a blonde in sunglasses sunbathing au natural (her lower area was covered by a towel, but her upper torso was fully exposed). The poster came from Europe (it said it was Made in Italy) which pretty much explains it.

Too bad Ebay didn't exist back then, they would probably be worth something now.

I think they are tacky and tasteless. I prefer cultural decor that showcases my upbringing. I avoid putting up photos. My collection is mostly of relics and new pieces made in traditional ways. Each piece has value and history.

Same thing with my kitchen. Everything is either antique or high quality and unique

I have a 100+ year old handmade cast iron pan. And spatulas of hand wrought iron. I have some really old noh masks as well. The masks are at least a few hundred years old based on what my grandma can tell based on their history when she obtained them.

I preferred posters from The Brothers Hildebrandt (Greg and Tim), Gil Elvgren, Hajime Sorayama, Masamune Shirow, Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta myself. Still pin-up art just not live-action . They've done some of the most amazing work over the years.

I like the classic pin-up tattoos or paintings on war-machines..... for what they are. I just prefer them to not have nudity.

To me, they're more a symbol of the fire in a young warrior's heart (and other areas) than about the girl, herself.

Of course, I'm also a weirdo.

Those are curves to you?

Maybe I'm weird, but a woman needs hips at least as wide as her shoulders to be considered curvy to me.

Meh, her body would still look somewhat man-ish to me, in clothes. Her shoulders are just too broad. *shrug* We clearly have different tastes. nothing wrong with that. Everyone needs love.
