When you pick up your evening paper and see photographs of a ballerina perched on a ship’s rail with her legs crossed and her skirt pulled higher than is absolutely necessary, or an exotic movie star with her evening gown about to slip off one bare shoulder – then, my friends, you are looking at “cheesecake.”

“Cheesecake” is a termed coined by newspaper photo desk men to describe the pictorial strip-tease which is an indispensable part of journalism the world over. (In less elegant circles it is sometimes refereed to as “leg art.”) It didn’t take a Gallup poll to teach editors that next to pictures of children, a pretty girl in a bathing suit will stop the reader’s eye faster than anything else. And for this reason, cheesecake represents one of the more important phases of publicity.
