Surreal Erotic French Magazine Plexus Covers From The 60s & 70s




These surreal erotic French magazine covers from Plexus which used to be really popular in the 60s & 70s will blow your mind. Being a sexy offshoot of Planète, another vintage French magazine, Plexus managed to become a sensation in France, during the late 60s and early 70s.

At basis, Plexus was a surreal erotic French magazine, but it also featured a mix of fantasy and psychedelic art, interviews with famous writers and a lot of Playboy-style comics. From time to time, depending on the issue’s literary director (Jacques Sternberg was one of them), Plexus also featured an occasional Popeye comic strip, science fiction stories, thoughts on philosophy, Gilles de Rais profiles and, of course, plenty of boobs. Let’s not forget, it’s still an erotic magazine we are talking about.

Issues had a full-color ‘pin up‘ girl, done in a very tasteful and erotic manner. The French have a history with erotic literature, erotica, and they became known in this field starting from the 1920’s and 1930’s, with their famous nude photos, called ‘French Postcards‘.

These amazing and surreal erotic French magazine covers from Plexus take us back to the hippie decade in America and they show us a real insight of how the world looked like back then. What were the trends, the ups and downs of social life and the list can go on and on.
