Bettie Page, Queen of Pinups, Dies at 85

Bettie Page, the queen of sexual prowess passed away on Dec, 11, 2008 in Los Angeles, California. We lost one of our fore mothers, an iconic woman and a pioneer of the sexual revolution. She died just last week of heart failure. Bettie Page, was the first face of an industry, wherein women would become sexy for profit. She was a legendary 1950’s pin up girl, and would pave the way for the sexual movement of the 60’s. Bettie, was a rare talent, who was noted for her stunning beauty. She is remembered for her racy nude photos in bondage scenes, and edgy fashion attire. Bettie’s trademarks were her raven bangs, spiked heels and her vivacious killer curves. She embodied freedom of expression and was known the world over.

Bettie Page, was also a major influence in the fashion industry, and a target of congressional anti-pornography investigations, which lead her to twice seek the supposed legitimacy of marriage. Both unions were unsuccessful, and she grew more and more depressed. This ultimately resulted in her withdrawing from the public eye for almost thirty years.

Some fifty years later, she would reemerge through the imagination of an aspiring cartoonist, who featured her as the girlfriend of, The Rockateer. She would also be a noted spiritual collaborator of, Rev. Billy Graham, and her Bettie Page haircut would be paid homage by Quentin Tarrantino and Uma Thurman in their hit, Pulp Fiction. As always, she remained on the edge of trend, and culture. Her website www.bettiepage.com is where you can find more information, and see the cartoon character of Bettie Page. Bettie was a pioneering woman of hotness, spirit, vision, strength, and impact. She will be missed.

Like Bettie, I have had to learn through experience, how one can be; spiritual, strong, wise and sexy, and how to balance these occasionally conflicting concepts all at once. It hasn’t always been as easy as it might look for me. Difficulties have arisen from people’s misconceptions and lack of understanding.

Bettie’s two unsuccessful marriages, poverty and insanity from depression were all understandable. My career as a model and spokesperson has given me empathy with the difficulties that the 50’s sex symbol endured. The challenges and pressures that beauty can bring are many. The relationship issues that come with the territory haven’t changed much at all.

She and her three sisters were molested by their father well into their teenage years, and she was unwanted by her mother, due to jealousy. I think these are sufficient reasons to go nuts at some point. The trick is to learn from the negative episodes that life will bring you. To give and accept love free of guilt and shame is the goal.

Being a sexy, freaky, fantasy filled individual, does not make you a whore, or easy. Even the legendary Texas oil billionaire, aviation pioneer, and Hollywood movie mogul, Howard Hughes, attempted to influence miss Bettie, by means of the  “casting couch.” Like many since Bettie’s day, I’ve gone through the same thing. The business of modeling is based on the mantra that sex sells. This may be true, but it doesn’t have to come cheap.

I’m not  judging those who choose that route, we all have our own journey, and we must support each other without judgment. I just believe like Bettie that, my love and my body are solely for my significant other. My appearance may be used to promote commerce, but my body is a vessel for joy, pleasure, warmth and understanding. The closeness that the act of lovemaking should last long after the act is over. My touch is precious and it lingers.

Bettie’s legacy is instructive, and her life serves as an inspiration to me. I can only hope to be as courageous in the face of adversity as she was. Through the vehicle of communication, I will serve God’s will.  The hand of divinity was at work in my design. My God given gifts will allow me to strive to higher and higher heights.

I will be unfaltering in my desire to share the message that sex is love, love is beauty and that beauty is God’s wish for us all… Where ever you are right now I hope that you are feeling the inner stirrings of the truth that I speak and can accept the wisdom that I’m sharing. I will continue to walk my path, similar to the path that Bettie started down and that is lit by God. When I started this blog I stated we can grow together, are you coming?
