Yeah, right...........

I was sent an email recently with the following text:

This is an actual extract from a sex education school textbook for girls, printed in the early 60’s in the UK and explains why the world was much happier and peaceful then…..!

“When retiring to the bedroom, prepare yourself for bed as promptly as possible. Whilst feminine hygiene is of the utmost importance, your tired husband does not want to queue for the bathroom, as he would have to do for his train. But remember to look your best when going to bed. Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious. If you need to apply face-cream or hair-rollers wait until he is asleep as this can be shocking to a man last thing at night. When it comes to the possibility of intimate relations with your husband, it is important to remember your marriage vows and in particular your commitment to obey him.

If he feels that he needs to sleep immediately then so be it. In all things be led by your husband’s wishes; do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. Should your husband suggest congress then agree humbly all the while being mindful that a man’s satisfaction is more important than a woman’s. When he reaches his moment of fulfilment a small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had.


Should your husband suggest any of the more unusual practices be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent. It is likely that your husband will then fall promptly asleep so adjust your clothing, freshen up and apply your night-time face and hair care products.


You may then set the alarm so that you can arise shortly before him in the morning. This will enable you to have his morning cup of tea ready when he awakes.

Come on, I lived through the 60's, this is more like 1900 isn't it?   Thoughts anyone?

OMG...Can you believe this really went on? LOL. It's no wonder women wanted to burn their Bra's!!! Long live Gloria Steinem :) Yeah right... LOL :)

Quilly said...

If this was written in the 1960's, it was written by somebody's great-grandma!

Dumdad said...

Sounds good to me . . .

Betty said...

Ooops! Been getting it wrong for years.
Love the post :D

Monalisa said...

I think my husband would get a fright if I changed things now...

tony said...

I reread this several times. I still cant find anything controversial...........

Elaine said...

If this really was the 60's, I'm glad I wasn't 'doing that kinda stuff' till the 80's, lol.

Akelamalu said...

Burning bras - it's enough to make you want to burn down the house Thom! LOL

I think you're right there Quilly ;)

You're on thin ice there Dumdad ;)

Me too Betty LOL

I'm sure he would Monalisa :)

Tony hush your mouth!

Well I started in the 60's Laney but I can assure you I'd never heard not lived by these rules. LOL

Tracey said...

Blimey!! face cream and curlers!
and the slight moan hahahah i'd give him a slight moan alright.. "get up and make your own tea, idle so and so" hahaha

Ron said...

Who was this written by, Wilma Flintstone?!?!?!?!?


"When he reaches his moment of fulfilment a small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had."

I'd said if it was a "small" moan, she needs to find a new husband.


GREAT post, m'dear!

And I'm so glad to see you ladies have come a long way since then.

You GO, girls!

Linda said...

Well, the times have certainly changed since the 60's, haven't they? What's that old saying, "you've come a long ways, baby?"

Fletch said...

No matter how you look at it, the MAN is the 'simpleton' here.

Where's the equality in emancipation?

Finding Pam said...

Face cream and rollers? Of course I was too young to know about that stuff!

I once knew a woman that went to bed with her make up on to look good for her husband. She arose early to freshen up face.

My hubs would just prefer no makeup and just being nekked. LOL!

May said...

Been a while since I stopped by...thought I come in to read one of your great posts. Your posts are always interesting. This one just sounds to good to be true...its all good though.

A Lady's Life said...

This was the way it was and girls went to finishing school to learn this. Of course for men it was always good. They got theirs at home and everywhere else too.
Some areas of the world are still like this and even worse. We are lucky not to live in a mans world.

Akelamalu said...

You're a gal after my own heart Tracey :)

I don't think even Wilma Flintstone would have abided by these rules do you Ron? LOL

Very wise of you Richies ;)

I don't remember it being like that even in the 60s Linda!

I agree Fletch :)

I don't think any man would be interested in the make-up Pam, mostly they just like you nekked as you say. ;)

Nice to see you again May, glad you enjoyed it.

There are some places in the world where this still happens Lady's Life but thankfully not where we are eh?

Cloudia said...
