Le Rubirosa

Porfirio Rubirosa was the last of the great playboys. According to the legend he was extremely endowed, his appendage having been famously described by Truman Capote as “an 11-inch cafe au lait sinker as thick as a man’s wrist.”
Allegedly Parisian bistros to this day call the biggest pepper mill “le Rubirosa” so here’s my tribute to the great lothario, in the form of a magazine ad from the late Fifties/early Sixties.
