In the 60’s, women blew off convention to boldly express themselves in ways their mothers had never dreamt of. They danced naked at Woodstock, were the first to go braless, and finally showed the world that women are active, passionate lovers. Before these women, their mothers were relegated to the kitchen and made to believe that sex was a “wifely duty.” Where would we be without the outspoken 60’s chicks who paved the way for the rest of us?

So, when your sex life needs a “pick-me-up,” what better women to consult than the ones who lived and loved during the grooviest decade in history? Dig these deliciously retro tips from the hippest girls of the 20th century:
Sock It To Me, Baby!
He’ll be raring to go go when you play go-go dancer à la Goldie Hawn. Take a tip from the producers of the old Laugh-In TV series. They knew the best way to get a message across was to paint words on Goldie’s bikini-clad body while she danced the watusi. Your guy will “hear” you loud and clear when you write your desires on your belly, thighs, or back. If you’re really daring, draw road signs pointing to where you most want attention. He’ll be so turned on that he won’t even notice you’re giving him directions. Use something edible like a tube of colorful gel icing from the grocery store, and check yourself out in the mirror as you write. As soon as he sees your mod bod, he’ll be dying to eat your words!
Give Penis a Chance!
In the 60’s, no rocker believed he’d made it until his “easy rider” had been cast in plaster by world famous groupie, Cynthia Plaster-Caster. Her most treasured plaster penis is that of none other than Jimi Hendrix. “I was so excited to see the finished product,” she says, “that I almost ruined it by rushing the process!” Of course, all of her famous phalluses were cast while at attention. Imagine how “hard” your guy will take the news when you tell him you want to immortalize his beloved member. These days, though, you don’t have to mix your own plaster from scratch like Cynthia had to do 40 years ago. You can buy an easy-to-use kit and sculpt him in candle wax, soap, chocolate, or rubber. Check out www.CloneaWilly.com for a kit with everything you need to keep your man with you even when he’s far away. Start by joining the Beat Generation to help him reach his full potential. Then, you can add colors and even make his likeness purple haze psychedelic. NOW, who’s your Daddy-O?
Before there were pantyhose, Carol wore nothing but a garter belt and thigh high stockings under her miniskirt and go-go boots. “I loved the feeling of nakedness under my clothes, and it drove my boyfriend wild,” she says. The best part of going au natural with a Moulin Rouge garter belt is how you let your guy in on the secret. Do you whisper in his ear at the restaurant that your panties have gone missing? Do you stash your thong in his pocket? Do you grab his hand under the table and let him feel the evidence? Or, do you take the teasing to the nth degree and flash him just before you run out the door, late for a movie? You’ll be wearing little more than a devilish grin while he tries in vain to concentrate. When he gets you home, he’s sure to ravish the … well, the pants off of you!
I am Woman … Hear Me Roar!
“We didn’t have a movie camera—video was complicated back then,” says Erna, a former flower child who’s still stunning in her 50’s. “So, we made a reel-to-reel audiotape of our lovemaking. As soon as we played it back, we made like bunnies all over again!” You already know watching a video of yourselves is better than any porn movie you can rent, but the sounds you make are also simply the most! Without the distraction of seeing yourselves onscreen, a simple audiotape will catch every nuance of your heavy breathing, whimpers, gasps, moans … well, you get the idea. You may get a case of the giggles at first, but soon, you won’t be able to resist an instant replay. Right on!
Twist and Shout!
When Hasbro first released its Twister game in 1966, it caused quite an uproar. The company was accused of selling “sex in a box” because it was the first game to use the human body as playing pieces. But we think the inventor was the coolest cat ever. After all, this smashing game has endured for more than 40 years. If you want a truly far out time, turn to your stud and say, “Don’t be a drag, man. Gimme some skin!” Then, strip off your clothes and hang loose. Play Twister the way it was meant to be played—in the nude. Before you know it, you’ll be feeling randy and shagedelic like Austin Powers. Yeah, baby, yeah!
