1950's American Slang Word(s) of the Day #26

Our 1950's American Slang Word(s) of the Day Week today is:

Peepshow:   1. A supposedly private or surreptitious view, usually through a hole in a wall or tent, of nude women, couples engaged in sexual play or other lewd scenes. Once traditionally part of small carnivals and often conducted by brothels, such shows were likely to be hoaxes, the viewer seeing little or nothing but being too embarrassed to complain. --2. Any Burlesque show, nightclub act or other lawful entertainment featuring chorus girls in scant attire, strip tease dances or the like.

Stripper:   1. A strip tease dancer, a burlesque or nightclub entertainer who disrobes, (but usually not completely) slowly and sensually to music: she may also but not necessarily, dance, do bumps and grinds, or perform other erotic movements.


Example: My big brother Charley looks through that secret tent-hole at the carnival, Paulie. He's old enough to look. He says they calls it a peep show and he tells me there's ladies and their BOOBS there Paulie! Real live BOOBS! Big boobs, little boobs, fat boobs and all kinda boobs. There's  boobs all around, Paulie! Not only are there boobs, Paulie, but Charley says that you get to see their whatzits too! their whatzits he tells me! I cant stand it, Paulie! I can't think of nothin else. I close my eyes and all I can see is boobs and whatzits. We gotta sneak in to that peep show, Paulie!

Clarification: My older brother Charles paid a visit to the travelling show and he, possessing  the necessary qualifications,  made a visual inspection of a mysterious circular opening set high up on the wall of a private tent. (He expressed to me that this place is known among men as a "Peep Show") Charles was struck with a sudden feeling of wonder and excitement at the images before him...Women and their breasts, Paul! Breasts of all shapes and sizes danced before his eyes. He revealed to me that breasts are not the only thing, Paul, but the female sexual organs can be seen as well! Women and their sexual organs Paul! I can think of nothing else since I've heard. I try to intercept these visions with humdrum thoughts Paul, but alas, I am cursed. We must somehow witness these wonders ourselves!

  9. Actually male and female specifications are for keep a better attraction between males and females. Every one is sensitive for the specifications of their opposite gender. Absolutely there is nothing wrong with the higher sensitive people.
