The Angle of Jeopardy – Vintage Erotica Covers

I found it very interesting that all of these covers present the female figure at the same angle; two are posed virtually the same. All of them show women in some sort of jeopardy at the hands of a man, physical in two cases, almost physical in a third (she’s being menaced by his shadow as he approaches). One appears to be emotional jeopardy, instead (the man’s back is turned; she’s been rejected).

About Victoria Janssen

Victoria Janssen [she, her] currently writes cozy space opera for Kalikoi. The novella series A Place of Refuge begins with Finding Refuge: Telepathic warrior Talia Avi, genius engineer Miki Boudreaux, and augmented soldier Faigin Balfour fought the fascist Federated Colonies for ten years, following the charismatic dissenter Jon Churchill. Then Jon disappeared, Talia was thought dead, and Miki and Faigin struggled to take Jon’s place and stay alive. When the FC is unexpectedly upended, Talia is reunited with her friends and they are given sanctuary on the enigmatic planet Refuge. The trio of former guerillas strive to recover from lifetimes of trauma, build new lives on a planet with endless horizons, and forge tender new connections with each other.
