Chuck Lewis, handsome football star, lives in a world of gridiron battles, record hops, beer parties. His adolescent “steady,” Joanie Miller, is willing to please him up to a certain point—but refuses to go all the way. So to satisfy his violent urges, and to make Joanie jealous, Chuck deliberately tempts his pretty high-school teacher, Meg Davidson.
During a private tutoring session, love-starved Meg yields to Chuck’s caresses, launching them both into a reckless and wanton affair. Then Meg marries Chuck, is discharged from her job and scorned by the community. But she has no regrets. All that counts are those frenzied satisfactions in the arms of her young husband.
Only one thing worries Meg. Does Chuck really love her? The answer comes as a crippling shock. Meg is Chuck’s wife. But Joanie Miller is carrying his child!

Can a man of fifty, however strong, win, hold and satisfy a pretty young girl?

This is the story of Roy Hayes, age twenty-five, who al-most gets his uncle’s young bride for himself. Their love affair takes a surprising turn.

The Husband Trader

Beacon Softcover Library B877X 1965

She Planned To Strike It Rich By Sharing Her Husband With The Right Women — And Then The Sentimental Slob Fell In Love!

Presumably unrelated to The Wife Traders

From the back:


Sex, land deals, stocks and bonds—they were all the same to Lori: commodities to find a buyer for. She’d sell herself, sell her husband, sell her friends—and sell out her enemies.
ELLEN had money— lots of it. And a voluptuous body that craved men — lots of them. So Lori obligingly invested her husband in a little sexual speculation.
BESS had bounced from bed to bed, each more expensive than the last, until now she shared her satin skin and silk sheets only with the big money.
Then Lori sold her husband down the three-way street with another woman once too often —and the sentimental slob fell in love!

In one blazing weekend of greed and unrestrained lust, the masks are ripped away from the people who would do anything—or anyone—for a dollar, and even the biggest operators find they’ve been sold.


Sex Habits of Single Women

Beacon Signal Sixty B748X 1964

This bold new book is an encyclopedia of the sexual practices and erotic fantasies of modern unmarried women. With case histories in their own words…

From the back:

CAROL L. “If a man wants you and you want him, you don’t just sit there.”
NANCY R. “His wife can’t give him satisfaction—but I can.”
HELEN Z. “There’s regular sex and there’s fancy sex. I’m a specialist in fancy sex.”
MURIEL F. “Both of us were women … and proud of it!”
MIMI D. “The day I decided to divorce Dave, I kissed my reputation goodbye.”
Disclosing the intimate love patterns of the unmarried female, the case histories in this study are highly enlightening.

For every adult alarmed by spreading immorality and anxious to root out its causes, SEX HABITS OF SINGLE WOMEN, is required reading.

She Stopped At Nothing For Her Kicks…
Marian was not willing to leave well enough alone. She could have lived on comfortably in the suburbs with her husband but she was bored and restless. With him, the marital bed was tedious and sex routine.
That’s why Marian decided to give her sensuality free rein. She went on an expedition into Manhattan, cultivated bizarre friends — looked for unusual, sensual experiences— sought odd types of lovers who would stop at nothing….
Life became a series of off-heat adventures for Marian. For a time she enjoyed the repeated thrills of her strange, taboo world. But the odd breeds oddity. She found herself incapable of returning to normal ways, normal love.

The Girls Taught Each Other About Love!
Every Parent Should Read This Shocking Novel Of Adolescent Girls Who First Tolerated Vice — Then Embraced It — Then Could Not Live Without It…!

Cover stolen from Young Widow. The 1959 edition is here

From the back:

Maidens In Distress!
The Briars had a fine reputation as a school for adolescent girls. Yet the goings-on behind its ivy-covered walls were scandalous enough to shock the most hardened adult! For it was not just a matter of secret trysts with men. Here the young ladies were subjected to far worse iniquities. Certain members of the faculty were teaching the special subject of “love” to the more attractive girls, inducting them into warped and twisted practices….
Blonde Rhoda Sterling, for instance, and that Southern student, Emmylou Berry — both were educated in perversity by the handsome gym mistress. Fetching Elise Longstreet, who arrived at school with a healthy — too healthy — need for boys, was forced to endure the cruel indignities of Miss de Sousa, of the English Department. Obviously, only experiences with virile men could rescue such girls from their own warned passions. But would the world understand if measures drastic were attempted? After all, the pretty darlings were so young, so tender, so very tempting…
Behind The Venerable Façade Of Many A Private School Lurks Unutterable Vice And Wickedness. This Novel Affords A Glimpse Of Conditions Which Cry For Correction!
