This lot of 23 out of sequence issues published between 1953 and 1957 shows a conservative change in the publication, with earlier issues regularly featuring large nude photographs of women on the front page, while the later issues moving to having more glamour photographs and little to no nudity, though still discussing sexual customs and advertising adult entertainments.
