SIX SIXTIES & SEVENTIES SEXY PINBACK BUTTONS!
Check’em out Folks, these are nearly half a century old from a time when wearing buttons accessorized not only one’s outer clothing style but was also a fun statement of one’s inner feelings as well. These were colorful signs of free speech, satire, protest, humor, endorsement, and anti-establishmentarianism.
Presented in found, unrestored condition from the depths of 00individual’s collections, it would appear from the overall theme of this featured select group of surviving accoutrements that 00individual didn’t dwell on worldly political issues like the war, injustice, freedom of speech and equality, no, he wore buttons that expressed the really important subject matter of the day – SEX!
Lissen’up Kids, everything you ever heard about Free Love of the ’60s and ’70s was true!
The Sexual Revolution allowed people to lighten-up and let the confining puritanical view of sex in which they were raised to just wash away. People who were now unrepressed and uninhibited could enjoy each other’s bodies and love-making without societal shame, guilt, fear of virtually non-existent sexually-transmitted diseases, and most importantly, thanks to the Pill, without fear of unwanted pregnancy. All of this contributed to what would better be termed as Sexual Liberation; for now when there was sexual attraction people could act on those impulses with the joy of freed minds and bodies. Groovy!
From 1967 to 1977 00individual was 16 to 26 years old; in his sexual prime, during the prime of the sexual revolution. He was not a sex fiend, but just like his peers, it was hard not to take advantage of the existing permissiveness. As an example, out of the five girls at 00individual’s 12th grade high school art class table, he dated four, and had considerable sex with two – not bad for a seventeen year old in 1968, but not unusual either.
00individual continues to thank all of the Gods responsible for allowing him his life experience in this place in time for all of the right reasons.
And Ironically 00individual is a Proud Member of the Historic,
Once Every Hundred Years,
High School Graduating Class of ‘69!
And may the Class Of 2069 have as much enlightenment and fun as their previous Centennial Brothers and Sisters.
