The "Early 1960’s Sexual Equality" Story
Early 1960s Sexual Equality
If there was ever a college story, it's about an artist/model I met years ago. Lou-Luke lived and worked in New York City in the early 1960's. I never had a class where he posed as a Life Model. "Life Model" means he posed nude. The most Lou-Luke ever said to me in passing was "Hi!" or "Nice seeing you." He did have several live-in women, it was rumored. I wondered how this could be.

Lou-Luke's charisma was not lost on several young women, all with extremely thin figures and long flowing hair. These women were participating in the great "Sexual Revolution" of the 1960's on a scale unmatched by anyone I'd ever heard of, with the exception of the famous rock stars of the day! Lou-Luke was not a rock star. He did, however, have at least five young women surrounding him every time he entered and exited the art department of the professional school in the arts, New York City.

Here was a man of nearly six foot tall, with straggly blond hair, mustache, and small beard. He wore multi-earrings on each ear, torn tee shirts, Concho silver belt with feathers and bells dangling over his well-worn blue jeans. His motorcycle boots were not the traditional color of black, but instead were a butter-sand color that was well worn. He had a Harley Motorcycle. The women who followed him would gather in one car and follow him.

Lou-Luke was not the only person with a different lifestyle at the time. There was a middle-aged woman, I rarely saw, who was said to have two lovers she lived with in an apartment on West Fifty-Seventh Street, New York City. Apparently, these people were years living together quite happily without the benefit of marriage at first, and then she married one of them. The other man never left the relationship it was told.

One day, Lou-Luke arrived for a modeling job without his long hair, now cut in a much shorter length, with a clean shaven face, and long sleeved shirt, and bell-bottom jeans. This was the only time he posed in one of my art classes. There were no more entourage of women, and no motorcycle parked anywhere. Lou-Luke had moved on to a more mature looking man even though he was in his mid-twenties.

Lou-Luke and his five girl friends were all pregnant the same year which was 1962!
