The attire of the person on the rear deck (left) and the card's message suggest that it was
intended for members of San Francisco's gay community.  It reads I love you so f***ing much, it hurts!
(pardon my French!)  It was published in 1982 by Exposed Cards.  I assume that the person featured
in the other  card (right) is a cross-dresser [man's hands and legs] and that the card, again,
was intended for the gay community.  There is no message or indication of the publisher
