Hot-cha-cha! Bare boobs, a fondled boob, and great artwork. These have it all.

That's pretty racy stuff for the times. I'll bet these were under-the-counter pulp magazines.

Never saw anything like this on the shelves in the 30's and 40's.

No matter how many times I see the covers this pulp featured they always startle me.

Did any other pulp of this era feature this kind of nudity?

There were a lot of overtly sexy pulps with titles like Bedtime Stories, Tattle Tales, Cupid's Capers, Stolen Sweets, Wild Cherries and Saucy Stories. The Spicy line followed, introducing mild sex to genre stories. Saucy Movie Tales and its sister mag, Mystery Adventures, tried to compete by featuring nudity (mostly by Saunders) on the covers. Stay tuned for some sizzling examples of Mystery Adventures.
