Vintage Sleaze #5: 12 Forbidden Novels from the 1950s and 1960s By /////

TWELVE forbidden, sexy novels from the 1950s and early 60s, out of print for decades, collected in one volume

These illicit paperbacks, featuring torrid and daring covers, were enormously popular in the 1950s and 60s, despite often being banned or labeled indecent. While there is plenty of sex in these books, it’s mostly mild by today’s standards, more turgid prose than turgid flesh. But many of these books were ground-breaking in their day, either by breaking taboos about same-sex or mixed race relationships, or by financing & launching the careers of exceptional writers who would later become famous under their real names.

The books included here, unedited and in their entirety, are:

Chico’s Women by March Hastings
A Matter of Adultery by Don Lee
Dangerous Harem by John B. Thompson
A Rage Within by March Hastings
Gambler’s Girl by John Tanner
Honey in Louisiana, Two Novels by John B. Thompson & Jack Woodford (HONEY and LOVE IN LOUSIANA)
Sweet Cheat by Peter Duncan
Sinful Virgin by John B. Thompson
