Bachelor Pad Magazine/

Booze, Babes & Burly-Q!
“For Mature readers”

Two lines on the cover of the premier issue of Bachelor Pad Magazine. Java of Java’s Bachelor Pad ventured out to create this very welcome addition to cool mag racks, in the handy, slightly smaller than A5 size. To add flesh to the quotes above here are some names:
Bernie Dexter – picture set of classic pin-up poses
Heidi van Horne – a day in the life of… (actress & pin-up model)
Kay O’Hara – centerfold and more classic pin-up poses
Cherry Capri – lifestyle advice
Lily von Schtupp – burlesque producer
Thrillville’s Will Viharo – the classic Vegas flicks on DVD

There’s also plenty of funny cartoons in the fine tradition of attempting to loosing you up again.
You probably got it now, this is about pin-ups, burlesque and the bachelor pad lifestyle that comes with cocktails, fezes and tikis.

Jimmy Vargas writing on the hopeful, young burlesque dancer and her boyfriend is hilarious and far out – very entertaining. Everything is written very entertaining in fact and if you miss this early issue you might kick yourself later! Did I mention the cocktail recipes and entertaining tips yet? Essential!

Not only was Kelly instrumental in defining modern surfboard design, he was seminal coastal environmentalist, founding Save Our Surf in 1961.

Aloha John!
