Tumblr favorite #1798: Laser fucked

Tumblr favorite #1799: Can you solve the mystery of the sexy hex dump?

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 028 – Laser Fucked.” Here is what Bacchus found, somewhat to his (mock?) disappointment.

This image originates at the LiarTownUSA Tumblr, where it is tagged “#magazine #vintage #porn #xxx”. I’ll confess I was taken in by it; the groovy 1970s imagery depicted is not completely uncommon in porn magazines of that era. However, a few increasingly-persistent searches failed to turn up any evidence that such a porn magazine ever existed. This is odd, because the fonts used on the apparent magazine cover are typical of those used by a large publisher of porn magazines, and their magazines virtually all survive today in online scans at various levels of detail and completeness. So a lack of search results seemed implausible.

A bit of sleuthing at LiarTownUSA (a name which perhaps should have been taken more literally than I first did) turns up a considerable volume of artwork using a formula that combines vintage iconography with modern photoshopped absurdist humor. Thus we have the impossible titles What? How? Wonder Book of 3/4″x1/8″ Threaded Hex Bushings, Harry Potter and the ’66 Chevrolet Owners Guide, and another psuedo-porn title, Badly Cropped Teens #4.

Thus I am reluctantly forced to conclude that “Laser Fuck” never existed as a porn magazine. Nailing shut the coffin of hope, we have Boing Boing explaining the joke:

If you like surreal Photoshop jokes, LiarTownUSA is the tumblog for you. Every single thing on Sean Tejaratchi’s blog is magnificent ‘shoop genius.

Le sigh…
