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

Author Ken Feil discusses this topic drawing context from his books.
