Vintage Erotic Photography: Semi-Nude Girl Drapes Slip Over Bike Seat

Secrets & First Tastes - Girl on Bike

Secrets & First Tastes – Semi-Nude Girl on Bike

Chin propped on hand and head titled down under a big sun hat adorned with a large bow, her ruffled, lacey slip draped suggestively over the seat and handle bars of a turn-of-century bike, exposing thighs and lower belly, stockings and boots. The photograph has a seductive, whimsical #eroticism and was part of a “nude girls on bikes” theme popular at the time.

This collection explores vintage erotic photography from the 1900s through the 1930s. You’ll find lush imagery from the Victorian era, when sexual mores and behavior had rigid protocols. We’ll collect erotic photos from the Roaring ’20s Flapper era and the early Free Love Movement of the 1930s. These hidden, sensual stories are explored in the SEX & DESSERT series, but especially in the debut: Vol 1: Secrets & First Tastes.
