THE CALL GIRL WHO CLAIMS SHE’S A VIRGIN (Nov, 1959)

Must have been a slow news week. They manage to take half the article to string out the idea that she *might* be a lesbian. Googling her name I found that I had posted another article featuring her and other teacher/call girls from around the same time.

She later went on to write an apparently salacious yet frank book about her days as call girl. What I found most interesting (at least in the post I read) was the idea that a woman’s prison was the only place a woman could safely be openly gay. According to the blurb, she was not, in fact a virgin when she got into the business. Shocker I know.

Also a somewhat disturbing quote about her father that intimated a possibly abusive father and/or the public’s fascination with the Freud: “My father was a shadowy figure in my life, scarcely distinguishable from any other big man with a hat and cigar”.

INSIDE THE McMANUS MYSTERY… THE CALL GIRL WHO CLAIMS SHE’S A VIRGIN

BY JAMES KERR MILLER

THE NAME “VIRGINIA” is derived from the word “virgin”. And, incredible as it might seem, it’s quite possible the most talked-about call girl in the country today is aptly named.

We’re referring to Virginia McManus, the beautiful blonde who, until recently, followed the school-teaching profession in Brooklyn, by day, while allegedly following the world’s oldest profession in Manhattan, by night.

SEX IN THE SCHOOLROOM (Jan, 1960)

As far as I can tell, this article has nothing to do with schools. Though apparently there were a few teachers who turned tricks on the side. I do love the picture on the bottom of the second page. I think that woman was the inspiration for blowup dolls.

SEX IN THE SCHOOLROOM

Carnal capers, even murder, run rampant in our schools!

A California high school teacher made national headlines recently when Tie livened up classroom curriculum by conducting a “Little Kinsey” sex survey among his 30 physiology students.

His sin quiz got Cecil Cook suspended on charges of immoral and unprofessional conduct and set off a furor among his students and fellow teachers at Van Nuys High School, Los Angeles. Four coeds said they were “shocked” by the questions and school officials thought the passion poll was “improper.” Other students, teachers and parents thought the quiz was perfectly all right. A few even felt it “was of tremendous importance” as a guide to proper sex education techniques. And Cook himself described his survey as “a search for moral standards.”
