Phallic Phriday Just Under the Wire

I've got four minutes left of Phallic Phriday, but I can't disappoint my adoring fans. [pause for applause]

Ahem. Thank you. Thank you ver' much.


Ladies and Gentlebeings, I present to you, drumroll please, CRYSTAL WOMAN!




Here's a closeup, just so you can share my pain.



My favorite part of this cover (and this was a hard decision, let me tell ya!) is the fact that it looks exactly like something an angsty, kinda arty twelve-year old girl would draw. In fact, add a unicorn and some really bad eighties "fashion" and it'd look exactly like something I would have drawn after school in my best friend's basement. After a meal of chocolate sandwiches. And this was BEFORE I became a pothead.
I hope you've enjoyed this edition of Phallic Phriday. On to scintillating Saturday!

The first thing that comes to mind upon seeing this cover? There's a billboard just outside of Hendersonville, NC for the local Bon Worth outlet store that features a woman lying languorously and comehitheringly (if that ain't a word, it oughta be) on one side while rocking what looks like a fuck-me red pantsuit with matching lipstick and a peroxide-blonde head of hair that would have made a '70s country/western singer blush with shame.

And this is supposed to make people want to shop there?

This cover needs to be cornified.

That would make it better.

I just discovered this whole world, despite having done over 200 hopefully not-that-bad covers. In my case, it was the fact that all 8 billion Star Trek novels have recently been put into Kindle, with mostly their original covers.

I can't believe this particular one. It too has a disembodied head, menacing the female figure.

Not just a phallus, but a phallus jabbed right between the eyes. Which isn't good for anyone involved.

Is that a Barbie standing in front of a condom?

The hair makes me think it's an 80s era Dee Snyder (Twisted Sister). Yikes! Not just phallic, but homoerotic.
