“I actually think there shouldn’t be any genders. That’s the way humans really are, but there have been elaborate codes adopted to weed out parts of behavior that don’t match whatever gender or social group you want to belong to. But no, I never wanted to look particularly macho. I wanted to look kind of smooth, slinky, and super forward.”

From an astounding 2012 interview in Vice, “The Flesh Machine”

John Lydon & Nora Forster, married nearly 40 years.

‘Now there’s a saucy girl,’ he grins. ‘It’s love, you know. I’ve always loved that woman. And she knows it. When we met we didn’t expect to get on. We’d both been told the other was a bad ‘un. But blimey. Sparks flew. It was instant attraction. And that’s never gone. I never expected to feel like that. I never thought I was in any way attractive. Or anyone’s idea of a good date.

‘It’s volatile, the marriage. Which one isn’t? Nothing better than a good, full-on row. Get it all out. Say rude and nasty things. And then be sorry. Genuinely sorry, afterwards. But you know I can’t think of a better woman on God’s earth than Nora. If we ceased to function as a couple tomorrow there would be no one else. Not ever. I mean it.’

This was very common at the time, making it easier for photos from a series to be sold to more than one publication. Magazine art directors often did (and still do) this too, to provide more flexibility in how text and graphic elements are laid out. I thought about flipping it, and have indeed reoriented or otherwise edited other photos before posting them, but in this case, I’ve enjoyed the photo as Ken first released it for so long that making it “right” now looks “wrong” to me!
