Sex, Laughs, and Television: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, Jacqueline Susann’s Love Machine, and the Sexual Revolution

On December 29, 1969, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In bade farewell to “The Sexy Sixties” with a musical salute that singled out author Jacqueline Susann, whose "sexy," "trashy" books--most recently The Love Machine--were breaking publishing records. The nation’s best-selling author bore a kinship to network television’s top-rated program, both products of the sexual revolution that, in very different ways, yielded laughter from sex. Author Ken Feil discusses this topic, drawing context from his books. Register Now!
