Mae West: Slipper Room Sex

In 1975, MAE WEST issued her latest book:  "Mae West on Sex, Health, and ESP" [London: W.H. Allen]. A New York City based cabaret duo has taken a great deal of inspiration from this.

• • The Cornell Daily Sun, Volume 56, Number 59, 3 December 1935 ran an interesting article — "The Champ Meets a Notable." Illustrating the text was a photo of Mae West standing between two men: heavyweight champ Jim Braddock and his buddy Joe Zigg. It seems that Mae gave these handsome fellows a tour of Hollywood film studios. Mae could always spot a good-looking guy.

• • "Day Tripper" is a song by The Beatles, released as a double A-side single with "We Can Work It Out" on Friday, 3 December 1965 in the U.K. Mae West covered this song on her 1966 album "Way Out West." Her album was re-released in 2008 on CD.

• • In Her Own Words • •
• • Mae West said:   "People just don't eat right. For breakfast, I have sliced apples and raisins. Or fruit with a syrup made of powdered almonds, milk, and honey. At night all I have is a salad. During the day I drink carrot juice."

• • Biographer Diana Souhami mentioned Mae West.
• • From Diana Souhami’s critically acclaimed biography of lesbian painter Hannah Gluckstein [Open Road Media, 2014], there is this curious tidbit about Mae West:  She saw Mae West in "I'm no Angel." Gluckstin wrote in her journal: "Gawd! I was fascinated but I never want to see her again." ...
• • British painter Hannah Gluckstein, born on 13 August 1895, died on 10 January 1978.
