English term or phrase: 60's Thursday - No Sex Please (We're American)
Guten Tag,
wie würden Sie diesen Titel übersetzen? Der Auftrag ist für eine angesehene deutsche Zeitung.
Kontext: Prüderie in der Gesellschaft der 60er Jahre.
Vor allem, "60's Thursday" bereitet mir Schwierigkeiten, da ich nicht weiß, ob sich damit eventuell ein besonderes Kulturspezifikum verbindet, da ich viel später geboren wurde..
Würden Sie "No sex please" unübersetzt lassen?
Meine Übersetzungsideen wären soweit:
Sex muss draußen bleiben/ Sex - nicht bei uns/ Sex - bitte ohne uns
Halten Sie die Varianten für angemessen?

Schönen Tag noch und danke im Voraus

Bloß keinen Sex bitte! (Wir sind Amerikaner)

I also found the blogger's web site with the article. As mentioned by other contributors, the "60s Thursday" refers to the blogger's own "tradition" of posting an article on 1960s culture & events every Thursday.
So unless your job is to translate more than just this one article from the blog, the "60s Thursday" part is fairly irrelevant. Maybe you could just mention the fact to your customer and ask them whether to include it in the title of the translation or not.
If you absolutely want to include it, I'd suggest
"Der 1960er-Donnerstag"
"Der Sechziger-Donnerstag"
or even
"Der Sixties-Donnerstag"
