Gambling Vixens. In which Leonard Burtman gets yet MORE mileage out of his only pair of red leather boots and imagines some vixens gambling for their own jewelry!
One man feverish whirlwind of sleaze publisher Lenny Burtman remains mostly a mystery today…and that is probably a good thing. Illustrator Eric Stanton brings the game further along with his version of strip poker near the logo…but there are no men to enjoy the game. (Most of the men in Lenny's books were wearing dresses, but none are invited to the game here. Good thing too…we know all men cheat.)
There is absolutely no nudity in the book. Not even a peek. And yet you wouldn't really want your kids to see it, not because it is sexy, but because it is just too weird. The game lasts about 65 pages, no text, and the centerfold is the pair on Lenny's dingy couch having a smoke.
Gambling Vixens came out in 1964. I'd say they were ahead of their time, but there is NO time in which this would be reality…and therein lies Mr. Burtman's charm. He wasn't prophetic,he was nuts.
