Carla (1964)

Beacon B786X 1964

To the world — a “Les”
To her lovers — “Butch”
To herself — “Tramp”

From the back:

SHE WAS A “BUTCH”
What does this mean in terms of the human being—the beautiful, gray-eyed, twenty-year-old girl called Carla?
What does it mean beyond the fact that Carla preferred girls to boys, man-style sexual freedom to buttons and bows?
MARGARET knows-because she is the first girl to be seduced by Carla. JAMIE knows-because she is the one who lives with Carla, making love yet not loving.
SORREL knows because she turns the tables, takes Carla by force.
HILDA knows-because with her talented stripper’s body she is able to toy with Carla.
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW? ARE YOU CURIOUS ABOUT THE DAY-TO-DAY DETAILS OF LESBIANISM, THE CAUSES, THE REWARDS AND THE TORTURES? IF SO, READ CARLA

But all of them were ready for anything, from savage combat to diabolical torture, no quarter asked and none given.

Unnatural Affection — Or Perverted Hate? The Young Widow Had to Choose Between Them…
A Novel That Speaks Out Boldly On A Taboo Subject

From the back:

In The Grip Of Perversity
Often whispered about—but rarely spoken of aloud—the startling theme of this story concerns Carroll, a pretty young widow. She is taken into the household of a friendly couple, only to find that her caresses are sought not only by the husband—but by his wife … Should warm, lovely Carroll be condemned for yielding both to the love of a married man, and the equally ardent embraces of a voluptuous though twisted woman? The answer is not simple. True, Carroll responds to their needs, yet it is a haunted, tortured experience . . . despite its warped delights, its moments of almost unearthly bliss. Perhaps she is more to be pitied than condemned. For the whole point of this bitterly true novel is that pretty Carroll is the seduced rather than the seducer—the sinned against, rather than the sinner … entirely too attractive for her own good.

Out of her own experience, the anonymous author tears the curtain from one of the gravest threats to modern social morality—the strange love practices trapping unwary girls today, particularly in our larger cities!

She was the bait for a studio tycoon’s twisted wife… but she didn’t care… she thought it was wonderful to be paid for that!

Cover reused from Party Time

From the back:

Her name was Carole and she was beautiful and passionate, but anyone… man or woman… could have her for the right price! She had made up her mind to succeed in the tawdry jungle of show business and she didn’t care what she had to do to do it! And she was only one of the tramp starlets who infest Hollywood, struggling to make good, willing to pay their way with the only currency they own: their own fresh bodies! Even when the buyers were more often women than men…

Encore

1964 Midwood 32-398

She’d felt safe and secure in her marriage until a lovely spectre from a secret past returned to reawaken the dormant hungers.

From the back:

To her husband, friends and neighbors, Alice Rittenhouse was the epitome of the modern young housewife… well-bred, attractive, sensitive and happily married. Then, without warning, a strange act of fate threatened to destroy the foundations of her well-ordered existence… and expose the sordid and shameful secrets she had tried so desperately to keep hidden from her husband.
Laura Duchamp presents the shocking story of a beautiful and intelligent young woman, suddenly forced to choose between two altogether different types of love.
