Savor this collection of vintage sexy photographs, a century’s worth of naughty pictures sourced from the collection of connoisseur Mark Rotenberg. From early monochromes of daringly dropped drawers to seductively waxed handlebar mustaches, this delicious surfeit of 19th- and early 20th-century erotic photographs spans the sensual to the comedic.

From Bloomers to Bikinis

A treasure trove of vintage erotic photos

Sportive gentlemen, lascivious ladies: Since the earliest days of photography, people have been getting up to all manner of rannygazoo in front of the lens. This collection presents the finest highlights from the collection of New Yorker Mark Rotenberg, who began collecting antique smut after finding a stash of vintage erotic pictures in a Brooklyn dumpster and now owns a 95,000 strong collection of archive pornography dating from between 1860 and 1960.

Flick through these pages and witness the fitness of our forebears as they romp, cavort, and frolic with unabashed energy and glee. From early monochromes of daringly dropped drawers and seductively waxed handlebar mustaches, to Kodachromes of cheery, twin-peaked pin-up beauties in the 1950s, this fine collection spans the sublimely sensual and the ridiculous.
