Big90s

All things big, beautiful and fun. Try not to smile, I dare you.

When did the 1990s finally shed the vestiges of the 1980s to become the Big90s? By 1996 the big hair, blue eyeshadow and shoulder pads of the previous decades were now embarrassing jokes. While Tracci Topps isn’t sporting a dental floss thong that was taking the decade by storm, this number still shows the signs of the high-waisted panties that strippers favored to make their legs look longer. Also, did the art director flatten her breast so that it didn’t intrude on the Hot Jug Girls blurb or is that how TT’s implants look like at that angle? But hands down, the best cover line is Busty Bulletin Boards. Oh, the things we poor souls had to do to see pics of stacked ladies back in the good ol’ days.

Looking back at the Big90s, it’s easy to forget that no one knew what to do with the web and publishing back then. The internet was so new back then and so unformed - these were the days of dial-up, let’s remember - that it was easy to think that all things online were just a fad. Paper magazines with pictures of naked women going away? No way! You can’t bring a computer in to the bathroom, can you? Oh, the innocence.
You have to love D-Cup’s URL back then - http://www.dcup.com/dcup. Just adorable. It’s like finding one of your old letters to Santa or a mash note to the cute girl you sat behind in band class - the one with the small waist and the big rack. So cute, so clueless, so innocent. It’s also nice to sse that the folks at D0Cup were smart enough to pay tribute to Danni Ashe’s pioneering work for the erotic inter webs. Sure you could see her stuff for kinda free online but back then paper was still king. And Danni Ashe was the busty queen.

A flawless Joyce Gibson in black and white for Throwback Thursday one day late.

A beautiful still of Joyce Gibson. This could be the cover to a racy paperback back in the Big70s. Stewardess Stopover, perhaps?

A Wired magazine article about digital entrepeneur and porn star Danni Ashe was entitled The Brains Behind The Boobs. In 2001 her website was valued at over $30,000,000.

(I think that $30 million number is a tad generous. Some sources say that the curvy entrepreneur sold Danni.com for $3 million to $6 million in the very early 00s right before the first dot-com crash. Not a bad amount but clearly not the crazy figure sited here.)

I may have posted these before but they are so adorable - that modest dress, those soulful eyes … Did the photographer ask Danni Ashe to imagine that this was her first time taking off her clothes for the camera? Did they play “Innocent college girl earns money for her tuition?” Either way, I love the waif look, don’t you?
