Sexy pin-up. World explorer. It's a wicked combination. Month after
Modern Man reader were treated to Jane Dolinger's
globe-trotting accounts as well as a healthy dose of cheesecake posed in
exotic locales. She was the all-American girl who faced danger and found
adventure no matter where she landed. One month she would be Queen
of the Amazon, the next she was in the middle of a Voodoo ceremony,
and then it was off to a Moroccan harem. No matter where she was, she always
looked great whether draped in leopard skins, wrapped in South American
tapestries, or dressed as a Egyptian princess.
stories where always a breathless, daring narrative of danger and intrigue
throughout the uncivilized parts of the planet. When red-blooded men sat
in their bachelor pads and day-dreamed of world exporing, they would always
dream that it would be Dolinger they would bump into while
en-route to Incan ruins or cutting their way through jungle vines. Men's
magazines where always filled with rugged and sweaty accounts of exploration
and danger found in the deep dark corners of the uncivilized world, but
with Dolinger you added that dose of sexuality that was hard
to find in the typical stories of that genre. Although it is easy to dismiss
her magazine articles as a gimmick to lure readers eager to hear tales
of the exotic, the truth is that Dolinger was the real deal.
She was a popular adventure writer with numerous adventure books to her
credit (such as The Forbidden World of the Jaguar Princess,
Jungle is a Woman, and Behind Harem Walls)
. The fact that she looked good in front of the camera only helped matters.
