I can understand your fascination with Bettie. She's were beautiful. Who else do you like from the 50s or 60s bondage icon?
Shirley Levitt ::
As far as Bondage/Fetish genre, Shirley Levitt is the only girl that comes to mind from that era. There are some interesting notes about her in Vintage Erotica Forum. A Greenwich Village Beatnik, Shirley’s brand of fetish at the same Irving Klaw studio where Bettie Page cut her teeth was darker and more severe than Bettie’s playful rope tricks.
Shirley’s portfolio pails, when compared to Bettie Pages volume of work. It’s purely my opinion, but I think Shirley was an artist and model and loved the bohemian lifestyle of New York. Bettie on the other hand, was more of an exhibitionist. She was just a girl that loved to take her clothes off for the camera. She did it a lot, with enthusiasm and it showed through the lens.
