Xeni Jardin’s Weird Obsession with Proto-Porn

From Boing Boing’s Xeni Jardin: Desperately seeking Lily. It concerns a 1950′s-era toy that shows a little rubber model of a naked woman gyrating seductively. And it’s kind of interesting to me, and not just for the obvious reason; I’m curious about the thing’s actual backstory (as is Xeni Jardin), and I’m also amused by the meta-idea of a popular weblog using the bully pulpit of its network effects to try to tease out this particular truth.
