Oh, for heaven’s sake. The least you could do is keep your legs together, you hussy!

Little Bouncing Baby Sword of Damocles

“To save herself from the disgrace of an illegitimate child she may have an abortion produced; the abortion may have no bad results, but it may, if performed bunglingly, leave her an invalid for life, or it may kill her outright. If she is so unfortunate as to be unable to get anybody to produce an abortion, she gives birth to an illegitimate child, which she is forced in most cases to put away in an institution of some sort where she hopes and prays it may die soon–and, in general, it does. If it does not die, she has for the rest of her life a Damocles’ sword hanging over her head, and she is in constant terror lest her sin be found out. She does not permit herself to look for a mate, but if she does get married, the specter of her antematrimonial  experience is constantly before her eyes.”

–Woman: Her Sex and Love Life

I find the writer’s point a little odd. “So, uh, you know. . .  don’t bungle the abortion.”

Cast Boobs Before Swine

“Not only is the mind to be kept pure, but the imagination must be carefully guarded. Turn away from obscene pictures as you would from the most loathsome contagion. . . The influence of vicious pictures often leads to illicit sexual indulgence. . .  Banish from your room and your possession all photographs and pictures whether known works of art or shielded under some similarly deceptive and euphonious title, but which are nevertheless “nude and nasty,” and which consequently beget impure thoughts, pollute the imagination and debase that which is noblest and best in the beholder, it matters not whether the pictures are suspended from the walls of an art gallery or grace (disgrace) the parlors of the wealthy.

The man who desires to be pure in life must also be careful about the purity of his blood. No man can eat pork, at least to any considerable amount, without perceptibly poisoning his blood. Numerous forms of skin disease are easily traceable to the eating of pork, both fresh and cured, in the many forms of sausage pudding, ham and bacon.”

Porn, pork . . . it’s all the same, really.

(Seriously, these two paragraphs ran together.)

June Hussy of the Month (Plus PSA!)

Dear Readers,

I am here to warn you about a scourge in women’s behavior. I am talking of course about the habit among many young women nowadays to sit in an incorrect and unbecoming manner. To wit, one should keep one’s knees held tightly together, or perhaps cross one’s legs at the ankles, while keeping the skirt or dress smoothed neatly over the legs.

.

Below is an example of how not to sit.

No, do not be fooled by the book in her hand! Notice how this pseudo-intellectual slattern is perched upon the step, knees up and her undergarments clearly seen by all. For shame, miss!

Choose Wisely!

It all begins with cigarettes and self abuse, fellows!

Two Paths: Boy


“But Miss K. LaMoine!” you say. “Surely the delicate sex is not also capable of wandering down the wrong path!”

My dear Readers, it is terribly all too true. Take heed.

The Girl Can’t Help It : Ladies and Their Troublesome Libidos

“Many a libidinous wife has driven her husband, especially if she is young and he is old, to a premature grave. And ‘grave’ is used in the literal, not figurative, sense of the word. It would be a good thing if a man could find out the character of his future wife’s libido before marriage. Unfortunately, it is impossible. At best, it can only be guessed at.

When the libido in woman is so excessive that she cannot control her passion, and forgetting religion, morality, modesty custom, and possible social consequences, she offers herself to every man she meets, we used the term nymphomania. It is a disease which corresponds to satyriasis in men. The unfortunate victims  are often forced to become common prostitutes in order to be able to satisfy their desires. If they cannot get nature satisfaction, they masturbate excessively. Many of them end up in the lunatic asylum.

The treatment of nymphomania is similar to that of satyriasis: Confinement, continual cold bath or pack, immense doses of bromide and chloral and morphine if necessary. Removal of the clitoris may be considered. I consider even removal of the ovaries justifiable, if we could be sure of satisfactory results.”

Prostitution, lunatic asylum, morphine, clitorendectomy . . . man, “MTV Spring Break: 1939” was a huge drag.
