The September 1979 issue of Penthouse features this fifteen page pictorial of the depraved disco goings-on at Xenon. The club opened in 1978, and had enough cache to be considered a legit alternative (though not a replacement) to the much more famous Studio 54.
Normally I'd include a scan of the cover, but my copy is water damaged, and in pretty bad shape. In fact, it's headed for the recycling as soon as this is posted. I'm not sure why I have it actually.

Sylvia Kristel and my earliest boner memories are intertwined. Emmanuel was probably the first soft core feature I ever watched. Lady Chatterly's Lover I must have seen at least three or four times as a youth. All of this was courtesy of Cinemax After Dark, and the fact that my grandparents went to bed early. They almost always had a subscription to Cinemax. So from the time I was around eleven or twelve, Friday night was tits and ass night. It was the perfect way to end the school week. Sylvia Kristel was a big part of all that. She was the first female star whose name I ever remembered (and looked for).
Here we have a nude woman painted to look like Alice Cooper. A nude woman will only allow herself to be painted to look like you if you are King. And yes, Alice Cooper was once our King.
There is nothing exceptional about this ad. I do think it's an interesting way to jazz up a cassette player. There are a lot of colors and exotic images along the border, but there in the middle, are the boring brown boxes. Surely there was a better way.
This is an orphan record insert/postcard that I found without the magazine that birthed it. I ended up paying more for this than I should have. There was a little bidding skirmish for it that I was drawn into. It wasn't worth it. But discerning readers such as yourself, may experience it here for free.
