Beautifully strange print of the 3 legged Lady, Blanche Dumas. It is believed that she was born on the island of Martinique in 1860. She purportedly had a very broad pelvis, two imperfectly developed legs and a third leg attached to her coccygeus and, in addition to normal well-developed breasts, she also had two smaller breasts close together above her pubic area. Furthermore, Blanche also had two vaginas and two well-developed vulvas and, allegedly, both had equally developed sensitivity. Her sexual appetite was said to be very pronounced. She was known to have many male admirers and was known to ‘entertain’ men with both her vaginas. So pronounced was Blanche’s libido that she eventually moved to Paris and became a courtesan. She heard stories that a three-legged man with dual genitalia named Juan Baptista dos Santos was in Paris on a European tour, she expressed a sincere desire to have sex with him. While there is no evidence that the two had illicit meetings, there is a rumor of a brief affair. Excerpts of the above taken from the book Very Special People as well as Anomalies and Curiosities of Medicine. Whether or not true, it is a fantastic story to tell when people ask “who is this Blanche Dumas picture on your wall?”.
