My. My. My. How things have changed for the better, or the worse, depending upon your point of view. “Women Who Want To Be Raped” is an article from Quick magazine, the Feb. 1965 issue. It’s typical of the offerings in men’s magazine of its era. Misogynic or not? You be the judge. All I can say is WOW!!!

Another wonderful Mens Magazine from the Golden Age – the 1950’s! These are the very tough ones to find that were not sold on newsstands like Playboy. They were sold in specialty shops in only certain cities at the time. This grouping has been sequestered away in a bankruptcy proceeding!
This one is in pretty good shape for its age – there is some wear along the upper right hand corner of the mag (as shown), but no major creases or folds of any kind. All 52 pages are complete and intact with very minimal yellowing throughout. Has pictures of all the glamorous “love goddesses” of the 1950’s!

June Wilkinson was born 27 March 1940 in Eastbourne, England. Having started as a stage performer at the age of 12, she went on to become the youngest topless dancer, at the age of 15, at the Windmill Theatre in London from 1957 to 1958. During a promotional tour in the United States, she was discovered by Hugh Hefner. Her first appearance in Playboy, in September 1958, was titled “The Bosom”. She was a brunette in those days, but in later shoots she was a blonde.
Wilkinson’s second Playboy appearance was photographed by Russ Meyer. Meyer was an independent photographer at the time, and filming his ground-breaking The Immoral Mr. Teas (1959). Because she was under contract to Seven Arts at the time, Wilkinson could not officially appear in Meyer’s film. However, as an uncredited and unpaid favor to the director, Wilkinson’s breasts can be seen through a window in one scene.
Wilkinson appeared in Playboy again in August 1959 in a spread titled “The Bosom in Hollywood.” During this period, she appeared with Spike Jones‘s band, together with actor Billy Barty. Recalling this period in her career, Wilkinson later remembered Barty with affection, but commented that Jones, off-stage, had no sense of humor. In 1960, Wilkinson was featured in Playboy four times, in June, July, August, October, and again in November. Her feature in the November issue was titled “The Bosom Revisits Playboy”. Wilkinson appeared in the 1960 voodoo film, Macumba Love, which promoted her measurements as “44-20-36”. At times reported as up to “45-22-35”, in 1963 Wilkinson stated that her measurements were actually “40-22-35”.
In 1961 Wilkinson made several stage appearances on the U.S. West coast with performers such as Louis Jordan in Marriage Go Round, Silvia Sidney in Come Blow Your Horn and Milton Berle in Norman, Is That You?. She had a brief role in John Cassavetes‘s 1962 film, Too Late Blues.
In December 1962, Wilkinson made her last appearance in Playboy, though her photos would continue to appear in the magazine in anniversary and retrospective features. Though she was never an official Playmate, she was featured in the magazine on seven separate occasions and was one of the magazine’s most popular photo subjects. She appeared in more than fifty other men’s magazines and newspapers from 1958–1970, making her one of the most well photographed models of the era.
Wilkinson was the star of director Myron Gold‘s 1963 film, La Rabia or The Rage. Directed in Mexico City, the film has Wilkinson as a stripper with a gigolo boyfriend. She met Dan Pastorini, NFL quarterback for the Houston Oilers and Oakland Raiders in 1972, and they were married in 1973. They co-starred in the 1974 film Florida Connection (also known as Weed), for the producer of Rage. The couple divorced in 1982, and Wilkinson never remarried. She has a daughter, Brahna.
In 1997, in her late 50’s, June came back for another nude shoot in The Best of Glamour Girls: Then and Now vol. 2 (Winter 1997). In 1999 when Playboy published its list of the “100 Sexiest Stars of the Century,” June came in at #30. Currently she hosts “The Directors,” a cable show in which she interviews filmmakers. She’s also putting together a show about the history of fashion called “Glamour’s First 5000 Years.”
