A few months ago I wrote about and discussed The Good Wife's Guide. Well, I recently came across another gem, a 1940-50's guide for young women taking sexual education courses on how to properly prepare themselves for potential night time play. Brace yourselves ladies, make sure your stockings cover your chastity belt, and get out a pen and paper.
"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 he needs to sleep immediately then so be it. In all things be led by your husbands 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 fulfillment 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 uncomplaining and obedient but register any reluctance by remaining silenced. 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 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 available when he awakes."
This is why divorce rates are so high in the new millenium. If you ungrateful wives would stop going to bed with your rollers in, maybe your husband would give you the key to the chastity belt and lay off the "unusual practices!" Yeesh.
Do you think the increase in women expressing their opinions, not taking this behavior and having a say in their life has anything to do with the increase in divorce rates over the years?
