Paula Klaw — Makeshift Dominatrix!

Willkommen zurück Fet History fans!

Last week, if you’ll recall, we took a look at some of Irving Klaw’s Masked Women, circa 1950, but there was one particular masked woman I left out.

In a 1980 interview with the late Gloria Leonard (editor/publisher of High Society magazine), Paula Klaw came clean:

GL: Did you ever pose?

PK: No, but I filled in here and there when a girl didn’t show. I’d put on a little mask.


GL: Did you ever feel as though you were living out a fantasy of your own?


PK: I guess so. Oh, sure, it was fun and I enjoyed it. I was glad when someone didn’t show up so I could do it.


One such occasion Paula may have remembered with fondness transpired 30 years earlier, circa 1950, with the BF-1 Series. See below:

So which model was Paula Klaw replacing? A masked woman we’ve seen before? Amy Lane? Shirley Levitt? Or Shirley Maitland?

We may never know. But, as history has proven, Paula was a trooper—a woman unafraid of stepping up to the plate. And, like her brother Irving, she did understand that this was just about fantasy and play.

Her “damsel” in this particular instance was Lois Meriden, who never looked more beautiful ... or sweetly feminine.

This next one is my favorite. With the soft play of angles and the model's lilting surrender.

Predicament accomplished. All in a day's work.

I guess we can all thank Paula Klaw for donning the mask.
When destiny called, she answered!

  1. Is this the same Lois Meriden who was married to Joe Franklin?
