Yes, it goes back all the way to the pulp magazine era, which often had 
bug-eyed monsters threatening scantily women.  I don't know when the first 
barbarian in fur jockstrap sort of cover showed up....

("There has been a great deal of talk about the big questions of science
fiction," SF author L. Sprague de Camp said once. "The truly big
question of science fiction is ‘What is that woman in a brass brassiere
doing on the cover of my book?’")
