Christopher Street Magazine. September 1979. Back cover, exterior.
"For years, the sensual population has had to put up with improvising with lubricant products intended primarily for other purposes. Vaseline is for chapped lips; baby oil is for babies; K-Y is for doctors; and Crisco is for cooking!"
At some point the makers of John Waters’ favorite brand of VCR head cleaner came out with a “sensual body lubricant” that had some vaguely-defined antibacterial properties. I can’t help but notice they claim those antibacterial ingredients only keep the product from being contaminated with agents of venereal disease, rather than its users.
Thanks to Smithers for this photo. Thankyou to everyone I met at #EdinburghFestival… what a brilliant weekend. Now home in Hackney, battered but beaming. I’ll be back in a fortnight to clear up. The show is open 14:30-17:30 every day til then… Except Wednesday 20th. #furrealist #Fringe #festival #fag (at Wallace’s Art House Edinburgh)
