Physique Pictorial cover spawns censorship

Cover date of Physique Pictorial issue bearing a cover painting by Quaintance, “Sacrifice” depicting a nearly naked man chained in spread-eagle suspension to a vertical sun disk.  In the foreground two virtually naked warriors lie bleeding (dying) from arrows penetrating their backs.  This cover resulted in censorship in Los Angles county.  No one objected to the bondage, blood, or violent theme.  They wanted the lushly rounded asses of the dying warriors covered.
