The Ar­chives

Newsweek International - - REWIND -


To il­lus­trate that “the old taboos are dead or dy­ing,” the mag­a­zine chose a nude im­age of Jane Fonda on the set of Roger Vadim’s raunchy sci-fi com­edy Bar­barella—al­ready no­to­ri­ous months be­fore its re­lease. Some psy­chol­o­gists and “so­cial thinkers” feared ex­plicit lyrics in songs and “of­ten ob­scene lan­guage” in nov­els and plays would bring about “a dan­ger­ous swing to­ward ir­re­spon­si­ble he­donism and, ul­ti­mately, so­cial de­cay.” If only they could see in­ter­net porn to­day.
