Like a lot of other artists, I'm a sucker for a good pin-up. My favorite pin-up artist is Art Frahm. Most popular for his work in the 50's he gets a lot of criticism for his lack of realistic backrounds and his Mannequin-like female faces, but I respect the guy for being brave enough to illustrate his fetishes for the world to enjoy.
Although he did work commercially for companies such as Coca-Cola and Coppertone, he is best known for his pin-ups of "women in distress". These pin-ups depict a situation where in one way or another a woman's panties have fallen down around her ankles in a public situation with one or more onlookers. Women share embarrassment while men smirk with arousal. In most cases the models hands are busy holding a grocery sack with celery hanging out of it.
In other cases it is a pesky animal (most often a puppy) who has caused the reveal of her panties.
Here's a selection of some of my faves. Unfortunately I don't have the names/dates for all of these, I believe a couple are untitled.
