Sex and rebellion on paperback covers

Here’s an uncredited cover dramatizing that great fear of the last century, that loose women would infect Our Boys with STDs (as detailed in The Trials of Nina McCall).Here’s another uncredited cover, painting Voltaire’s satire as a scandalous rakes-and-romance novel. Anyone who bought it with that in mind must have been really surprised.Here’s a movie novelization based on the same theory as DC’s Prez, that when 18 year olds became able to vote, they could shape the whole outcome — what if a charismatic rock star used them to seize power? I reviewed the movie last Saturday.And here’s another uncredited cover from 1968, combining a newsworthy topic with a suggestive image.#SFWApro. All rights to images remain with current holders.
