Is this buxom fictional slattern the very first rider of the infamous “cock carousel?”

I’m not sure I want to know what a broken cock carousel looks like

By David Futrelle

For years I’ve been chronicling the manosphere’s obsession with the so-called “cock carousel,” that wondrous merry-go-round of endless zipless sex allegedly enjoyed by every twentysomething Western woman, but off-limits to all Western men except the Chadliest top twenty percent.

Well, it looks like I’ve finally found the first rider of this sex-go-round, and she’s a bosomy fictional slattern named Elaine, brought to life in the 1963 pulp novel This is Elaine by someone called Jason Hytes. If the front cover is any indication, Elaine was not really that into shirts.

I have not read the book — which you can purchase used for $28.50 on Amazon — but the back cover gives a bit more detail on the perverse world of Elaine and her naughty friends.

Wait, wouldn’t the carousel have to still be working for anyone to get off?

H/T — @pulplibrarian, whose tweet was pointed out to me by former regular WHTM commenter @pecunium; I found the back cover on Pop Sensation.

Eastport, Maine? Given the geography, wouldn’t a port there have to be East?

The easternmost point in the U.S. is West Quoddy Head, Maine. And to get Downeast, you go north.

All those spins around the carousel warp people’s sense of direction.

Nearly forty years ago, I dated a woman who grew up in Eastport, Maine. It was a fairly dismal cannery town, and (according to her description) hardly a place for erotic fantasies unless drunken fumbling in the back seat of a car is your turn-on. I have to assume that it was not the locale in the mind of the so-called novelist.

@Jimbtho

women in their prime years (generally assumed by these assholes to be under 30, if not younger)

30? 30? They’d probably consider that gerontophilia. Women are like christmas cake, as these guys will inform you, because no-one is interested after the 25th. Ha ha.

@ Alan:

Thanks, I think I can use that as a starting point, until I need some more help once I get perplexed again.

@Everyone:

Hi!

Apologies for being rude.

I hope everyone is doing ok and happy as you can be wherever you are in the world.

Keep up the damned good work, David!

Love and the very best to all of you.

PS

Before I forget –

Ride/ entertainment suggestions for the… um… very adult theme park a la Dali:

@ Axe:

Being as Bajan as you are, you shouldn’t have any trouble explaining what a “pokey” is to the Commentariat lol

Is that anywhere near Passamaquoddy from Pete’s Dragon?

(checks Internet)

Apparently, yes, West Quoddy Head is at the southernmost edge of the entrance to Passamaquoddy Bay, and you could probably make a case that it would be the actual town represented.

(I already knew that Passamaquoddy was a real place from seeing it mentioned in an old list of alternate energy sources based on some analysis work done for a possible tidal power plant there.)

I’m Bajan, but I’m not that Bajan. Went as a baby, only been once as an adult, on a family reunion in June. Not much talk of pokey, ya know? Besides, the island slang I’m more familiar with is poom…

The comments on Australian “monsters” reminded me that a few days ago, an episode of Peppa Pig was taken off-air here because its message was “spiders can’t hurt you.” A lot of the spids here are absolutely harmless and very cute, but yeah, it’s not very good advice to give Aust. kids 😀

Seconding WWTH on the p/c thing. From my experience (fwiw) a lot of ppl are angry simply because they’re being asked to take responsibility for what they say, and maybe exercise some restraint (the horror). And these are sometimes the very same ppl who bemoan the loss of manners.

Is there an East Quoddy Head in Canada? Because if not… Why? Just… why?

Edit: Google is telling me there is an East Quoddy Head, or at least a lighthouse.

Re: PC, I think that term gets used when a word that was previously socially acceptable becomes something we’re not supposed to say anymore. People who have been saying it all their lives, rather than reflect on the word and how they’ve been using it and whether that was wrong, act defensively because they’re a good person and they’ve never meant anything bad by it, so if you have a problem with it you must be making a fuss over nothing.

Really? My goddaughter watches a ton of Peppa, I hadn’t heard that. So true though – and the big ones are not usually the ones you gotta worry about. I like having a huntsman or two around in summer as they eat the bugs and don’t web the place up.

For non Aussies, a huntsman is in the tarantula family. We’ve had ones as big as my hand around the house. And last Christmas, when one was on the ceiling over the dinner table we had to get the broom to get it out (we have two arachnophobic family members). So there’s me and my mom trying to aim the broom at the spider, and the spider says “fuck this” and tries to kill the broom. It worked out though – when the spider reared up to kill the broom, we got the bristles under her much easier. Of course, she then started for the top of the broom with a vengeance, so we had to get it outside quick. I wish we coulda just left her there, the cat probably ate her.

I feel bad killing spiders when I’m back in the US. They just sit there – it feels unfair to kill them if they’re not going to fight back.
