In a brief golden span between 1967 and 1972, the sexual revolution collided with recreational drug exploration to create "psychedelic sex." While the baby boomers blew their minds and danced naked in the streets, men's magazine publishers attempted to visually recreate the wonders of LSD, project them on a canvas of nubile hippie flesh, and dish it up to men dying for a taste of free love.Way Out, Groovie, Where It's At-each magazine title vied to convince the straight audience it offered the most authentic flower power sex trip, complete with mind-bending graphics and all-natural hippie hotties. Along the way hippies joined in the production, since what could be groovier than earning bread in your birthday suit?At its height, psychedelic sex encompassed posters, tabloids, comics, and newsstand magazines, but the most far-out examples of all were the glossy magazines from California, center of both hippie culture and the budding American porn industry. It's these sexy, silly reminders of peace, love, and pudenda we celebrate in Psychedelic Sex. So put on your beads, tune up your sitar, and let the love-in begin!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...Psychedelic Sex could be described as coffee table porn. It is also a tribute to psychedelic art, with its vivid, clashing colours and experimental graphics. With its vivid lime green and purple zig-zag cover, the book is beautifully presented. Its modern design uses bright, clashing colours that tastefully complement the era's radiant palette without being jarring."
"A hyper-vivid look back at the 1960s and early 1970s... Psychedelic Sex comments on nearly every curve and contour of American culture: money, power, sex, race, advertising, religion, technology, youth culture, freedom, and individual liberty."
