Sex tips for wives in 1895
Sex Tips For Husbands And Wives is a book written in 1894 to help newly married women "facing the terrible experience of sex” for the first time. It includes essential advice on how to discourage your man's sexual advances, choosing the appropriate night-wear, deciding on the acceptable length and frequency of sex, and much more. Hilarious! Thank god, we are no longer in 1894. From The Sun:
The wise bride will permit a maximum of two brief sexual experiences weekly — and as time goes by she should make every effort to reduce this frequency.
Feigned illness, sleepiness and headaches are among her best friends in this matter.
Most men are by nature rather perverted, and if given half a chance, would engage in quite a variety of the most revolting practices, including performing the normal act in abnormal positions, mouthing the female body and offering their own vile bodies to be mouthed in turn.
A selfish and sensual husband can easily take advantage of his wife. One cardinal rule of marriage should never be forgotten: Give little, give seldom and above all give grudgingly. Otherwise what could have been a proper marriage could become an orgy of sexual lust.
