Celebrating An Iconic British Pin-Up Model!
As part of my “2022 Sex Kitten Countdown”, I’m looking at some of the legendary Pin-Up Models of a bygone era…and wondering: what happened to them?
That’s the case with the stunning Frances Voy!
Finding information about some of the more empowered women of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s is simply that, after a on-camera career, many just decide to step out of the spotlight completely – but thanks to social media, their work lives on!
Frances Voy is a British Nude model who got her start at the age of 16 as one of The Sun’s “Page 3” girls.
Mayfair magazine was one of England’s most notorious “lad mags” in the 70’s and if you look at the bottom left of the cover, you will see that Frances had her name on the cover when she was allegedly just 17 years old!
However, all pictures shown here are when she is 18 or over.
Frances of was immediate hit, returning to Mayfair’s pages many times, as well as a myriad of US and English men’s magazines of that era.
This was an era when these magazine’s walked a very find line between being legal and obscene – and in many shops, the issues were literally kept “under the counter” and out of customer’s eyes…you had to know them to ask for them!
The website “Vintage Nude” provided some of this information, including this quote attributed to Frances at the time: the very informative article says that Frances was pursuing one of her many interesting hobbies at that time, while posing under the name “Saucy Sabine!”
According to the website, Sabine’s pastimes include: naturism, painting and what she calls: “Furtive Fucking”!
“I just love screwing in the most risky situations! It’s a tremendous thrill being screwed in a public place, with the risk of being caught as an added spice!”
The article goes on to report that, after modeling for many years, she got engaged and cut back on her magazine work – but she left a treasure trove of work to admire!
Some of you will know that I shared a story of Mary Millington, perhaps England’s most notorious “Pin Up” Model, who was heavily involved with Mayfair magazine:
Mary became a huge movie star as well, but there was tragedy ahead for her…read all about her provocative career and a new box set that captures her entire story – just click here for more:
This was a wild wild time in British men’s magazines – when articles like this were common:
Yes, Fiona Richmond had a very similar career to Mary’s and for awhile they both ruled the X-rated world of British cinema and more!
Here’s Fiona’s wild story:
And I also shared the story of England’s first Playmate Of the Year:
