Bums coverA Woman Looks at Men’s Bums
Jenkins
1983

Submitter: Found this gem in our university library and had to share. It’s a book of photographs of, well, the title is fairly self-explanatory really! It’s from 1983 (which surprised me, from the looks of it I’d have said 1970s). It hasn’t been borrowed since 2001, but looks very well-thumbed indeed! I particularly like the author’s photo from the back cover. She looks probably the happiest I’ve ever seen anyone look… (Well, you would, wouldn’t you!) I’m slightly baffled as to why this was purchased in the first place. It was in our photography section, and I guess maybe when it was bought it was a good social art project type book, but now it’s just incredibly dated, not to mention yellowed and tatty! WEEDED.

Holly: God bless America.

  1. Sorry, that author picture is a beard; this was done by a gay guy. Love the dimpled-cheeked decorative swirl on the title, though.

  2. I came of age, so to speak in the late winter early spring of 1983. And I remember that era, fondly. We in the LGBT community were getting our second wind and asserting ourselves. And this would have been on many a coffee table of older gay men back then.

  3. I’ll never understand peoples’ obsessions with butts. Especially considering all the foul things that exit them. And this book is not helping my confusion.
