Tumblr favorite #1876: X-ray tubes


My original tumblr post was here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Δ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Δ 045 X-Ray Tubes.” Here is what Bacchus found.

The Tumblr post at the origin of this animation’s Tumblr chain of provenance includes the following tags: “#1950s scifi #this island earth #1955 #joseph m newman”. The reference is to the 1955 sci-fi movie This Island Earth, which was notable at the time for its special effects and for being filmed in Technicolor.

According to the plot summary at Wikipedia, the two protagonists are at one point menaced with being subjected to a “Thought Transference Chamber”, which might be the chamber visible in the animation.

The attribution to This Island Earth is confirmed by the following scene from the trailer, which shows the same two people in the same sort of chambers, albeit with a menacing robot in this frame not directly seen (but visible as a shadow/silhouette) in the animation:


In 1996 the movie This Island Earth was heavily reworked (it’s unclear from Wikipedia whether it was completely remade or whether it was heavily cut and intercut with new footage) and released to theaters as Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. From the Wikipedia plot summary it seems unlikely that the animation stems specifically from the new MST3K movie footage, but I was unable to rule out the possibility.

Tumblr favorite #1846: Eerie tube girl


Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Δ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Δ 014 – Eerie Tube Girl.” Here is what Bacchus found.

This artwork is cropped from the covers of an Eerie Mysteries magazine:


This page suggests that only four issues of Eerie Mysteries ever appeared, in 1938 and 1939. It appears (although the scan is indistinct) that the cover above may be from the February 1939 issue. No artist information seems to be available, although it is known that Norman Saunders illustrated the cover of the August 1938 issue.

Tumblr favorite #1816: She’ll explode all the air on the moon!


Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 046 – Lunar Air Exploder.” Here is what Bacchus found.

This comic book art is the top panel in the story A Nation Is Born in Avon’s Strange Worlds #4 (1952) which (according to the Wikipedia entry on Strange Worlds) featured a Wallace “Wally” Wood cover:


A post on Pulpcovers.com offers a link for downloading a .cbz-format download of the entire comic.

A blog post here features a differently-colored version of the page where this image appeared, along with the information that the story was illustrated by Rafael Astarita and was reprinted in Strange Planets #9 (1959):


The script for A Nation Is Born was adapted for Volume 1, No. 8 of a black-and-white comic series called Strange Galaxy, where it appeared in 1971 in black and white (supposedly to avoid Hayes Code rules applicable to color comics) as The Moon Is Red:


2015 Squick or Squee Week I: A Gift to Septimo


We have two kinds of art — all of it specially commissioned for Erotic Mad Science — running as part of our annual pre-Halloween tradition of Squick or Squee week. The first two will be two new illustrations by DMFO, both pulp art recreations. This one is “A Gift to Septimo.”

I originally blogged this image in a post “When sex came to Septimo” at Hedonix. It was originally an illustration to a story called “The Facts of Life,” run at Future Science Fiction, September 1952.

The Artist and a Note

DMFO has a DeviantArt site here.

A larger version of this art is expected to be published at the Internet Archive in early November.

Tumblr favorite #1808: Absolut tubegirl


Original post here. This image was researched by Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” The research was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 038 – Absolut Tubegirl.” Here is what Bacchus found.

This is a work in the style of the famous Absolut vodka advertisements that always carry a tagline consisting of the word “Absolut” followed by one other word. And sure enough, this is a cropped version of such a complete-seeming ad:


This ad-like artwork is by photographer Caesar Lima, and appears in his portfolio (under “Conceptual”) on his website. Although the Absolut brand has run a great many “novelty” versions of its signature ad campaign, this one seems unlikely to be a “real” advertisement for the liquor brand. In seeming confirmation of that fact, Lima’s list of client brands does not include Absolut.

A bit more digging turns up the interesting fact that the image of the woman in the bottle is actually one of six photos taken by Lima as part of his Body Shades project. The model is identified as Samantha Torres:

Unrelated to these images but of potential interest in reference to the frequent Erotic Mad Science “If you’re pretty enough, you don’t need a helmet” meme, Lima’s portfolio also features this countervailing image of a beautiful woman wearing an Apple-branded space helmet.

Tumblr favorite #1788: Tanning with Madison Ivy


Original post here. When I first saw this, I thought “Real life sci-fi tube girl!” (Because let’s face it, that’s what I would think. Because it lacked tumblr provenance, however, I had it by researched Bacchus at ErosBlog as part of the “Γ commission.” What he found — and what was originally published at Hedonix as “Γ 018 – Tanning With Madison Ivy,” was a little different:

This photo of porn actress Madison Ivy in a tanning booth was posted by her to her Tumblr. It’s captioned “So Hot & Lonely in here… sambirdracing should come join me! Spotted u during the #FP2 I got my eye on u now. You’ve been #DickWishListed”.

For more information about Madison Ivy, see her bio at IMDB or her XVideos profile. Her “about me” on Tumblr reads:

I’m just a blazed gamer artist, who enjoys the 6 B’s in life, blunts, buttholes, beers, books, boys and bubble baths. You may hate, but once my maryjane gets inside you its all love.
