How to have sex with your husband 1960-style

Ok so I came across this post in my WordPress reader and simply had to re-post it here for you. Because it is ABSOLUTELY… Brilliant? Ridiculous? Hilarious?

I’ll let you be the judge.

Disclaimer: if you’re a shrinking violet or shy about sexual matters, perhaps it might be best if you simply turn away from this post because the last thing I intend to do is annoy or offend anyone.ย I did insert a few commentary for your (and my) entertainment – to be taken with a grain of salt. ๐Ÿ˜‰

PS Much of the world is still in this exact ‘state of mind’… (just saying).

I first saw this post here. There is an actual photographic image of the page in this blog post taken from a sex education textbook for girls in the early 1960s in Britain. I transcribed it and included the excerpt image below.

Transcript: Instructions on how to have sex with your husband

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 for his train. (Surly we can’t make him wait for sex the way he waits for the train now, can we? ๐Ÿ™„) But remember to look your best when going to bed.

Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious.ย (Tricky…) 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. (Well those rollers can be a shock to the horny man.๐Ÿ˜ณ) 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.ย (No intimate relations for the wifey tonight, he has a headache) In all things be led by your husbands wishes; do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. (Lest there be immediate, um…deflation ๐Ÿ˜œ) Should your husband suggest congress then agree humbly all the while being mindful that a manโ€™s satisfaction is more important than a womanโ€™s. (Um… ๐Ÿ˜ถ)

When he reaches his moment of fulfillment (Learned a new term in class, ladies?) a small moan from yourself ๐Ÿ˜‚ 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 (omg he wants me to turn around? ๐Ÿ˜‚) be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent. It is likely your husband will then fall promptly to sleep ๐Ÿ˜ด 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.ย

  1. The part about waiting until heโ€™s asleep to put your hair in rollers and put on your face cream reminds me of the show โ€œMrs. Maiselโ€. She does exactly this, and sets an alarm to wake up before he does so she can do her hair and put on her perfect face. I thought it was for comedic affect, now I realize it was reality back then! Good lordโ€ฆ

  3. We all laugh at this, but I was invited to a party a couple of years ago, and ended up being talked at by a friend of the host. He watched his wife helping with clearing the kitchen up, and commented that it was good to see the women folk in their place in the kitchen – that his wife enjoyed it… I didn’t know what to say.

      My thing is, it wasn’t that long ago relatively speaking. I mean, rollers in their hair? I STILL to this day see little old Polish or Ukrainian women walking around with rollers on their heads today, in Canada, in certain neighourhoods. Makes you think, doesn’t it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Stuff like this makes me cringe and laugh at the same time. Especially because it reminds me of all the jokes my husband and I make to each other around this concept, which is sadly quite often. Shall I go put on my pearls, dear?

  5. My wife will laugh and it is ridiculous today from our perspective, any bets on which gender wrote it?
    I have seen similar writing about women and men office behaviour and work etiquette etc also bizarre compared to our times.
    Enjoyed the read even though it was probably meant primarily for your more feminine followers.
