I've noticed a hopeful trend towards more natural looking nudes in amongst the plastic titties litering the modern XXX highway. This girl looks strikingly real, compared to the Jennas out there.

I always did have a thing for green eyes.

They had faces then. Or at least boobs small enough that you took the time to notice the faces. And of course no hint of hair other than on the head not because it was shaved off but because showing it would be crossing the line.

All so true. The girls back then did seem so natural. They had these fresh faces and bods that made you ache with desire even though they were necessarily perfect and symmetrical (i.e., surgically augmented gym rats airbrushed to the max), which made them sexy as hell. They seemed just like the headturners you'd meet in real life except naked. And it's true, they couldn't show pubes because Hef, who was still headquartered in Chicago at the first Playboy mansion, was getting major heat from Mayor Daley and a Postal Service that was just itching to make a federal case. When Bob Guccione started Penthouse, Playboy was forced to follow suit, so to speak. (Hef was reluctant to change and opined that Penthouse was pornography, not erotically artsy.) Showing the "full Monty" started a circulation battle between the two magazines that wags called the "Pubic Wars."
