SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: "Uncle Roy" Takes Candid Polaroids of Nymphet Nieces

Saturday Night Live: Uncle Roy Sketch
I learned about Buck Henry's Saturday Night Live (SNL) Uncle Roy sketch from a footnote in Rosen's Beaver Street: A Modern History of Pornography. On season 4 episodes 5 (November 11, 1978) and 20 (May 26, 1979) of SNL, Uncle Roy bamboozles his nymphet nieces, Tracy (Gilda Radner) and Terry (Laraine Newman), into searching his pockets for "candy", exposing their panties for candid Polaroids, and participating in a bit of BDSM e.g., spanking and bondage.
In a 2009 episode of Archive of American Television, Henry reflected on the sketches by saying that Tracy and Terry were between the ages of 8 and 11 and that:
"The great thing about the sketch [...] the best thing about the sketch [...] they really liked, they really loved each other [...] So, when I asked them to throw down their little panties and let me take pictures of them standing on top of the coffee table [...] the giggling and the show of affection would just increase."
Henry further rationalized the sketches by sharing that they were written by not one but two women - Rosie Shuster and Anne Beatts. 
And he hoped that the sketches would start "interesting conversations in families across America about who was the Uncle Roy in their family."

BEAVER STREET: A HISTORY OF MODERN PORNOGRAPHY | From Free Phone Sex to Nymphet Porn Stars


I wrote the following Amazon review for Robert Rosen’s Vanity Fair Hot Type Pick, Beaver Street: A History of Modern Pornography:



For the purposes of this blog, I’ll elaborate on some references to ephebophilia that are peppered throughout the book. 

Rosen related that ‘Free Phone Sex’ began in 1983 and that due to “[...] fear of a newly discovered disease called AIDS, phone sex sweeps America.” Publishers were making $70,000 per week and New York Telephone was making $245,000 per week. In addition to Pentagon employees “[...] spending a thousand bucks a day on free phone sex”, junior high school students were “heavily” into it phone sex too. 

This reminded me of a previous post where I wrote that "In Porn Before Puberty?", an ABC News feature, Winnifred shared that when she was in eighth grade, "[..] boys mostly, were watching porn during school [...] during independent reading, they would do that." In addition, the feature related that nine out of ten children between the ages of eight and sixteen have viewed pornography on the Internet.




Rosen started working at High Society magazine on Monday April 11, 1983, and his first writing assignment was as follows:

“I need a couple of paragraphs of girl copy for this,” the editor-in-chief said with a chuckle. “She’s only seventeen, but she’s really hot, and she can’t wait...if you know what I mean.”

Other quotes from Rosen’s time at High Society include: “Look at this girl - she’s beautiful, she’s barely eighteen, and she’s wide open [...]” and “We’re shooting a virgin sacrifice with heavy bondage. The girl is very young, very pretty, and she’s never posed before [...]”

Rosen related that Canada had stricter censorship laws than the States; thus, he had to do some ‘translating into Canadian’. For example, “If a woman had lost her virginity at thirteen - a huge Canadian taboo, though probably the average age for nude models - in print she lost it a “very long time ago.””

Eventually, Rosen got a job at For Adults Only (FAO) where he had to acclimate himself “[...] to the pathological sensibilities of its 50,000 readers [...] What they got for their money was a Freudian journey through a world of fetishistic delights that included [...] young nymph[et]s who “sleep with but-plugs” [...]” (Per Rosen, FAO was edited by Izzy Singer, the author of Teasing Teenage Daughter.)



At Screw’s annual Halloween bash partiers gathered around the stage to watch, “[...] Goldstein [Screw’s publisher] maul the naked breasts of a beautiful, auburn haired woman. “She’s only seventeen!” Goldstein told his jeering colleagues [...] “I met her through a personal ad and I can’t wait to eat her [...]!”

This next excerpt, very interestingly, reminded me of the cameraless documentary The Allure of Schoolgirls (2017). Rosen related that Chip Goodman, the publisher of X-Rated Cinema, and the magazines readers went “berserk” over images of schoolgirls. And Rosen noted in a footnote that “[...] the Child Pornography Protection Act of 1996 [...] made it illegal for sex magazines to publish pictures of models of any age wearing schoolgirl ensembles.” 

Traci Lords

Rosen shared briefly that Trinity Loren “[...] moved back to L.A. on her own when she was about fifteen and soon after found her way into the porn biz.” And that “[...] when Loren was a child, her father probably molested her.” 

However, Rosen elaborate on Traci Lords, whom also entered pornography as a nymphet and was allegedly raped when she was ten by her sixteen-year-old boyfriend.


“Two months after her eighteenth birthday, Traci Lords [...] perhaps the most widely photographed porn model ever, confessed to the FBI and the L.A. County district attorney that she’d begun acting in X-rated films when she was a fifteen-year-old runaway [...] What her confession meant was immediately clear: With the notable exception of her last movie [...] Lord’s entire body of work [...] had been transformed, as if by magic, into illegal child pornography.”

Lords confessed to “[...] using a false birth certificate to fraudulently acquire a passport, using this phony passport to obtain a fake California driver’s license with a false date of birth - November 17, 1962 (making her six years older than she actually was) - and then using both pieces of identification to prove that she was of legal age as she systematically sought work in the porn industry.”

Despite Lord’s confession, the naive mainstream media (unsurprisingly) portrayed her as an innocent and “exploited” victim, which is a phenomenon that we see repeatedly on this blog.

Netflix's EVERYTHING SUCKS! (2018): Teen Masturbation & High School Lipstick Lesbians



I read about Netflix's Everything Sucks! in the March 2018 issue of Vanity Fair, which described the teen show as a "disarmingly wining series".


 

Here is part of Google's plot summary: 

It's the 1990s in Boring, Ore., and groups of outcasts in Boring High School's AV and drama clubs are trying to brave the ups and downs of teenage life [...] The two crews of nerdy students are frustrated that no one is taking them seriously so they decide the best way to make it through high school is to join forces and make a movie [...] And there's also the usual teenage romance issues to deal with. Luke, the de facto ringleader of the AV club, falls for Kate, the principal's daughter, but she doesn't necessarily reciprocate the romantic feelings Luke has for her and is dealing with her own issues.


The first episode of the show, which New York magazine recommended that its readers binge watch, has a teen masturbation scene and by the last episode a lipstick lesbian scene that takes place on the stage in the high school's auditorium. 

Tavi Gevinson

In the masturbation scene, Kate Messner, a high school freshman, masturbated to a stolen porn magazine until her father interrupted her autoeroticism. Kate must not have read "How to Deal When You’re Caught Masturbating: Six decent excuses to have at the ready" in Yearbook Three of Tavi Gevinson's Rookie magazine.

Everything Suck! (2018): Teen Masturbation

Interestingly, the lipstick lesbian kiss is between Kate, who is played by 14-year-old Peyton Kennedy, and Emaline, who is played by 20-year-old Sydney Sweeney. (It's conceivable that they were 13 and 19 when the episode was filmed.) This poses the question: "Do age of consent laws apply to (lipstick) lesbians?"

Everything Sucks (2018): High School (Teen) Lipstick Lesbians

There are at least two interesting points that can culled from this coming-of-age Netflix series:

1. If Kate were a non-lipstick lesbian, that would mean that there is an extremely good chance that she had been sexually abused.

2. And, although many female viewers of the show may have looked at these scenes as heart warming coming-of-age dramatizations, many males, including boys and men, eagerly viewed these scenes as soft-core teen porn.

Francine Prose's BLUE ANGEL: The Professor and the "Little Slut"



Francine Prose’s Blue Angel is a national bestseller and National Book Award finalist.

Here’s part of Publisher’s Weekly's plot summary:

Trust the iconoclastic Prose to turn conventional received wisdom on such subjects as predatory professors, innocent female students and the necessity for a degree of political correctness on campus on their silly heads […] He is [47-year-old] Ted Swenson, a happily married and reasonably content novelist who teaches creative writing at a much less than Ivy League college in darkest Vermont. Stuck on his own latest book, he is nevertheless charmed and intrigued by the writing skills of the unlikely, ungainly and punky [freshman] Angela Argo […]

Per usual, the jeune femme in the age-gap affair is deemed “innocent”. Not only did “innocent” Angela seduce her professor but she recorded and submitted a conversation she had with Professor Swenson to the college’s administration admitting, “The only reason I let you fuck me [in her dorm room] was so you would help me get this novel to someone who could do something---“


Angela’s novel and poetry are of interest too. In the novel, which I learned about while reading “The Real Scandal in Academia” in The Paris Review, the nymphet protagonist is having a sexual affair with Mr. Reynaud, her high school music teacher.

“All that summer […]” after her sophomore year (15-years-old?), the nymphet daydreamed about Mr. Reynaud. And shortly after her junior year began, the nymphet and her music teacher had rough sex in the shed behind her house:

“He took my hand with his free hand and closed my fingers around his, the one that held the egg. He pressed until the egg cracked […] he released my hand and reached down and opened his pants. Then he took my hand again, still slippery from the egg, and wrapped it around his penis […] Actually, it felt sort of nice, velvety and warm […] Maybe he knew I was thinking that, because he got rougher, angrier, and he picked my skirt up and pushed down my tights, and pushed himself hard inside me […] I began to cry because it hurt, and it was unromantic to think that there was raw egg on his penis inside of me […] At the same time I felt happy because he wanted me […] My parents were across the yard […]”

It turns out that Angela’s novel was semi-autobiographical. A biology teacher at her high school was, “[…] messing around with a whole bunch of girls. He had himself a regular harem. Friends of Angela’s, too.”

And Angela’s poems are often about a “[teen] phone-sex worker’s sexually abusive father.” Here’s one:





There's a reference to two famous ephebophiles in the Blue Angel: In reference to Poe, a student asked, 'Are you telling us that we've been studying the work of a child molester? And referring to a Chaplin poster on the wall of Angela’s dorm room, the professor asked, “What’s Chaplin got to look gloomy about? He slept with harems of women [i.e., nymphets]!”

In this New York Times Notable Book, despite being a college freshman, Prose and the professor referred to Angela as “little girl”, “child” and “little slut”.

Lastly, Blue Angel was adapted into Submission (2017). Surprisingly, I haven't been able to find an online copy of the film, but here's the trailer:

Famous Ephebophile: Michael Kennedy's Affair with 14-Year-Old Babysitter

Michael Kennedy and Marissa Verrochi


I was reading the March 18, 2018 New York magazine feature, “What HopeHicks Knows”, when I read about Martin Gould, a New York based reporter, who outed Hicks and Porter in the Daily Mail, but more relevantly, Gould “[…] was charged with driving Victoria Gifford Kennedy, the estranged wife of Michael Kennedy, off the road in pursuit of a photo after she’d left her husband over his affair with [Marissa Verrochi] their [14-year-old] babysitter.”

Unsurprisingly, ephebophilia runs in the Kennedy family. We wrote about Kennedy Sr.’s sexual affair with his 17-year-old French caddie and about the NBC Rock Center profile on Mimi Alford, who was 19 she began an eighteen-month affair with President John F. Kennedy.

According to New York Daily News
  1. Michael Kennedy’s affair with his nymphet babysitter lasted for five years. 
  2. When the nymphet was 17, “[…] Kennedy flaunted the relationship by taking the teenager along on a whitewater rafting trip to Maine with friends where they shared a tent […]” 
  3. The affair ended after Verrochi started her freshman year at Boston University. 
  4. And “[t]he affair apparently triggered the breakup of Kennedy's 16-year marriage to his wife, Victoria, 40, daughter of former Giants football great Frank Gifford.”

Chanel vs Kaia Gerber: Who Uses the Allure of Nymphets the Best?



Unity Blott posted for Daily Mail:

Chanel has come under fire for using Cindy Crawford's teenage daughter in its latest accessories campaign.

The French fashion house snapped up Kaia Gerber, 16, to model its SS18 handbag collection but has divided shoppers over images posted online which show the model reclining on a sofa in Gabrielle Chanel's Parisian apartment.

Reacting on Facebook and Instagram this week, customers vented their fury at Chanel's choice to use the model, claiming she is 'too young' and claiming she is 'barely dressed' in the photos.

However, some of Kaia's social media postings and a number of paparazzi photographs taken of the teen model are far more revealing than the Chanel advertisement. Here are some recent photographs of the nymphet sunbathing and frolicking in Miami. 


Not only is Chanel using the allure of nymphets to sell (overpriced) handbags but Kaia is using the allure of nymphets for self-promotion. Don't think for a second that Kaia didn't anticipate that pictures of her red (cheeky) thong wouldn't be all over the Internet within minutes after she exited her swanky hotel room. 

Update 6/11/18: Here's the advertisement in the Summer 2018 issue of Vanity Fair.

Erica Garza's GETTING OFF: A Teen Addicted to Masturbation and Porn



Erica Garza's Getting Off is a memoir about Garza's addiction to pornography that began when she was 12-years-old. I read about Getting Off in New York magazine. Or was it the New York Times? Or was it The Daily Mail? I can't remember, but here's a summary of the relevant first four chapters. 

In the prelude of Getting Off, Garza, who grew up in “boring” Southeast LA, shared that after she had sex with Clay, she gave herself: “[…] two orgasms in the wet spot of the bed. Once, to a three-minute clip of a teenage cheerleader fucking her stepdad on the kitchen counter while her mom showers upstairs […]. 

In the introduction, Garza wrote that “incestuous cheerleaders” was one of her preferred genres of porn.  And that she would masturbate in her closet “for hours”. “From watching soft-core on cable TV at twelve [12], to downloading photos at a snail’s pace on AOL at fourteen [14], to tuning in to streaming sites with broadband forever after […]”

A footnote in the introduction related from the BBC that a 2015 survey given to seven hundred youngsters, ages 12 to 13, revealed: “[…] that 12 percent of those surveyed said they had taken part in, or had made, a sexually explicit video.”

In chapter one, Garza wrote that as a 5th grader, she stared at her teacher's "crotch": 

“There seemed to be no one I didn’t find attractive in my fifth-grade class […] even our teacher, Mr. Rivera. In class, I’d stare at Mr. Rivera’s crotch, trying to imagine what he looked like under his clothes. I stared at my female teachers’ breasts and long legs […]”.

This was when Garza was approximately ten-years-old and during her pre-pubertal period. (She got her first period at the start of high school and considered herself a “late bloomer”.) I beg to differ.

In chapter two, Garza learned about masturbation from listening to Dr. Drew’s Loveline radio show:

“[I]t was Loveline that first introduced me to masturbation, which would soon become my primary method of acting out. I was twelve years old when a caller fascinated with water faucets—a woman—called in and gave me an outlet for all my pent-up sexual frustration […] She said all she had to do was sit in the bathtub, spread her legs, and turn on the water faucet. I could do that.” 

“I remember the chill on my dry kneecaps, pressed up against the cold walls of the bathtub while the steady stream of warm water plummeted to that untouched space between my legs […] And, catastrophically, I remember the pleasure […] Should I do it again? Yes. Absolutely. Of course I did it again. And again […] I hadn’t even gotten my period yet.” 

“Throughout the rest of my years in junior high […] I masturbated. Not just reserved for the bathtub anymore, I masturbated when I got home from school, before dinner, after dinner, and soon found that I couldn’t even fall asleep without an orgasm.” 

Eventually, Garza masturbated to porn:

"I started staying up late, when my mom and dad were snoring away in oblivion, to watch soft-core porn on Cinemax […]"

"[And] [d]uring the day, I made other arrangements. I’d wait for Gabe [Garza’s brother] to leave the house and then I’d raid his stash […] Dirty magazines. Unlabeled VHS tapes. I masturbated every day, multiple times a day, until I was exhausted and sore.” 

In chapter three, Garza shared:

My online sexual proclivities began with chat-room encounters when I was thirteen […] I always lied about my age, usually saying I was sixteen, which neither the twenty- nor forty-five-years old minded.

Garza even left class to masturbate during high school:

"My private high school was a fetishist’s dream. With its plaid skirts, knee-high socks, nuns in habits, and a pervading atmosphere of innocence and sexual repression [...] When I found this pressure [of studying] was too much, I excused myself from class for a bathroom break. Masturbating in the school bathroom required all the usual sensations of control I’d grown used to. I had to be quiet if another girl was in the next stall. I had to keep my feet relaxed and still on the bathroom floor. And I had to be sure to achieve orgasm quickly, to avoid raising suspicions. I’d emerge from the bathroom sickened with myself but light-headed with pleasure. Were other girls doing this? I couldn’t know for sure."

Sixteen-year-old Garza found a copy of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson sex tape in her brother’s drawer that she described as “my most exciting and equally debilitating discoveries, which she watched with Monica, her brother’s “first serious girlfriend.”

Continuing to chapter four, Garza wrote that she had her first (lipstick lesbian) kiss in bed with her brother's girlfriend:

"When my feelings got unbearable so that I had to look down [from watching the sex tape] to keep from soaking through my pants, Monica said, abruptly, “You know, if you were a man, I’d choose you over your brother.” Subsequently, Monica “[...] leaned in and softly kissed me on the mouth with her full lips. My first kiss. I froze. “Kiss me back,” she said, pulling her face away from mine."

After streaming porn became available, Garza’s lust: “[...] gravitated to categories like cheerleaders, schoolgirls, and teens [and] to lesbian scenes, which were equally exciting regardless of the age of the actresses.”

Ultimately, Garza lost her virginity during her senior year of high school in the Angel Inn motel to Roberto, who was older than Garza by “at least a decade”. They “[...] continued sleeping together through the end of high school [...]”
