A couple of years ago we found an old book about sex in the piles and piles of books at Day job North. We put part of one up on the website. In the meantime I got intrigued and started seeking out old sex books - manuals and advice that is, not old porn, which is an entirely different and much more expensive hobby - and I have slowly been putting parts of them up as well. One of the things that you might notice as you go through them (and as I get through more of them) is that a lot of them are from the 30's. It seems that the 30's were a time of growing interest in sex. I suppose that during the depression people needed cheap entertainment. While this stuff seems quaint now, it was a major breakthrough compared to what came before it. In fact, writing about sex at all was a breakthrough as far as I can tell. And certainly the idea that people should be enjoying sex was new, even if who was to enjoy it, and how, was somewhat limited.
