Women with Dummies Female Ventriloquist with Vent Figures Vintage Photographs






Women with Dummies

Are ventriloquist dummies any less creepy when being manipulated by women?  Well, I don't see them as creepy at all, I see them as complicated, handmade and hand carved folk art objects with long and noble careers.  The dummies, that is.  The women with their hands up Woody's crotch might be a little strange, but the dolls (or using the proper term "vents" ) are fine with me.

Striving to be gender friendly in all endeavors, the author spent a decade collecting antique vintage photographs of ventriloquists with their tool, and while I cannot say total equality was achieved, I dare say you have never seen so many pictures of the "fairer" sex with blockheads before.  Dummy dames?
