I couldn't resist....

As I continue to explore the furthest reaches of irresponsible laziness, I decided to bring part II to yesterday's post on the 1950s lad mag. To-day we shall focus exclusively on advertisements, as they are terribly amusing. At a later date I shall, perhaps, bring part III with more pin-ups... as usual, click to enlarge.

Do you want to know "the truth about NUDISTS"? We provide the "BARE FACTS about people who join camps where THEY WEAR NO CLOTHES!"


Do you know that research scientists are uncovering "many new astonishing facts every month" about sex? Also,"Can You Answer These Questions?
1. How can women become pregnant yet remain virgins? 2. What is a stone baby? 3.In what part of the world do men suckle infants? 4. Can you beget children years after your death? 5. Who are transvestites? 6. Why do some boys become pregnant? 7. Why are girls in some primitive tribes infibulated? 8. Can twins be born, one black and the other white? 9. What is phantom pregnancy? 10. How does reproduction without sex take place? 11. How rare are children with tails? 12. What is telegony?


We can provide "immediate comfort for you" with our "patented RUPTURE-EASER", which is for Men! For Women! For Children! In fact our enormous RUPTURE-EASER has had "over 700,000 grateful users"!


I bet you want "A Way with Women!" Send us money, and "they seek you out, they come tearing down your doors, they won't let you go! They are yours, YOURS ALONE."


I'm not sure why anyone would bother sending away for these, as they can get the same sort of thing in The Brain that Wouldn't Die-- which is really a fabulous movie, by the way.


If our other ad didn't work send us more money, and we can "make women go for you! Yes, they will go for you. They won't let you alone. They can't help it." In fact, "ten years in college won't give you the advantage this booklet gives you"!


If that doesn't work, we also provide a patented "FIGURE SLIMMER Now offered for the first time"!


If husbands only knew... that these two women are obviously dating each other


what is with the accordion obsession???


BONUS: Charles Atlas ad! Yay!


That is all; I'm going to the gym

What did they use as a model for that guys Figure Slimmer? A Ken Doll? Surely that pouch is a bit ambitious in size?

You never cease to amaze me. Not sure how you find all the old suff but I well remember being fascinated and titillated (have always loved that word) as a young lady in Tampa, reading the backs of magazines.

Rock on!

As someone who has ordered all of those products I just want you to know they are all a gyp.
And they don't send your money back promptly like they say they will. I am still waiting for my dollar back for some of them..
