Strategically Covered Nudity In Vintage Movie Posters, Book And Magazine Covers

Back in the day, when you wanted to show your male audience nudity in order to sell your book, record, magazine, or movie, you had to do some sort of self-censorship – unless you wanted to be fined, arrested, or relegated to the “adult section”.

So if you wanted your cake and eat it too (i.e. show your male audience a naked chick, but not violate any codes), you employed various forms of strategically covered nudity (SCN). This method has been utilized too often to count, and could get pretty creative with their scenery censors.
