Twenty years ago, the trucks were delivering their bundles of the second issue of SCORE magazine (Volume 1, No. 2) while readers who’d read the first bi-monthly issue waited impatiently outside newsstands and stores for their next load of new big boobs.
L.A. Bust was SCORE‘s first covergirl. Who would be the covergirl of the August ’92 issue?
She turned out to be Letha Weapons. “This sexy 18-year-old is packing clubs across the U.S. and Canada,” the editor wrote in Miss Weapons’ 11-page layout that closed the issue. “No doubt, Letha’s plump pair of honeydew-sized melons could certainly be classified as weapons in the battle of the sexes.”
The rest of the issue included pictorials of dancer Zoryna Dreams; Tiffany Towers in a softcore sex scene with a guy; a softcore team-up Nilli Willis and Lisa Phillips and Jolene, a new 19-year old natural from San Diego, California.
There was an article by Christopher Caswell about the Vector, a $398,000 sportscar. The erotic short story was “Sylvia’s Secret” by Jackson Adams with art by Otis Sweat. There was a feature story, “How To Photograph Nude Models Part 2″ by Evan Andrews. Evan wrote, “Being a glamour photographer will give you a way to open a conversation with all those girls you meet at the local sports bar and you will have a portfolio of photographs to back up your story. What guy could compete with you?” Indeed.
There was a two-pager about super-naturally busty Polish stripper and sexploitation actress Chesty Morgan. L.A. Bust began her first column “Night Moves,” the prototype of the columns that Alyssa Alps and Crystal Gunns would write.
Orion Jeweb contributed his scholarly breast column “Mam•mal•o•gy.” (“Because the spirit of rational inquiry demands the hard data of practical experience, Mam•mal•o•gy has come to realize that, as one reader put it, ‘a boob in the hand is worth two in the bra.’”)
Duncan Gutteridge painted a new Fantasy SCORE. “Homebodies” presented amateur hopefuls who’d sent in their Polaroids. Wrapping it up, there was a “Video Pick” and the “Scorecard” letters section.
The price? $4.95, $5.95 in Canada. (Gas was $1.13 a gallon.) I saw a used copy of this edition going for $23.95 now.
On the back cover, Lisa Gazombas promised big-boobed satisfaction for the next issue, November ’92. She later changed her moniker to Lisa Chest. I don’t remember why. I liked Gazombas. I still do.
And that’s the way it was, 20 years ago.
No Internet. No DVDs. No iPads, tablets, desktops or Smartphones. No SCORELAND.
There were print magazines and VHS tapes. That was it. And there were strip clubs everywhere you could visit with lots of huge-boobed girls strutting their stuff on stage. They had names like Toppsy Curvey, Kayla Kleevage, Wendy Whoppers, C.C. Moore, Susie Boobies and Bethany Bustin and there were a helluva lot more new ones on the way. A huge-titted army, in fact.
