It's always so disappointing to a pervert like me when people get my hopes up and then I find out they're using "perversion" to mean plain ol' gay or lesbian. Yawn. I want some perversion with my perversion.

I love the way she's ever so slightly cross-eyed. I know that the artist meant that to show intensity (it's one of those old illustration tricks), but here it just looks... unfortunate.

And I'm curious to know what's keeping that sheet on the patient's right breast oh so barely above the nipple. Duct tape? Or, given the "perversion" theme, crazy glue?

Sean, I would say it has more to do with a poor artist at the time. Look at that cleavage! Very unnatural and it is as though they are forced unnaturally high on her upper torso.

I think the "nurse" is cross-eyed for the same reason. Poor artistic sense of scale and doubltess a rush job anyway.

Hey ! I dated a Lesbian nurse and she was cuter than that....

Gloria, You would love the current show of queer pulp novels in the Charles L Ross Gallery of the Stonewall Library and Archive in Fort Lauderdale

Maura, I'm straight and I've dated cuter lesbian nurses than that!

Father Tony, no DOUBT. I am a self-confessed sleaze-o-maniac. I just started an album devoted to pulp covers on FaceBook, http://www.facebook.com/DrGloriaBrame#!/album.php?aid=9892&id=100000564881968
