The Rube and the Carnies and the Naked Lady

Sex at the movies was usually in the many films loosely based on Biblical stories. The first female nipple I ever saw on the screen was on one of those dancing girls who always managed to show up in Biblical epics. The Princess Theater showed the Brigitte Bardot vehicle, And God Created Woman, from which the kids of my age only heard whispered rumors about Bardot’s backside because we were not allowed to buy tickets.
