A Japanese Sex Guide of 1960 gives tips and tricks for love life: From the right hands-holding over groom and trim the partner up to the correct insertion of the finger into the navel.
One of the many things I collect are old teen advice books, especially ones geared towards describing “proper behavior” in girls. These are the printed analogue to the mental hygiene film, another form of “social guidance” for the young that covered topics such as manners, dating, sex, money, driving, eating, and grooming. Teenage Living (published in 1960) covers pretty much all of these topics with winning, old fashioned flair. The cover itself says so much. This girl is getting so much simultaneous male attention that she has no choice but to bury her face in her hands. She doesn’t know what direction to bat her eyelashes or flip her hair. The boys on the other hand, look calm, cool, collected..downright languid. They’re just oozing 15 yr. old boy sex appeal!
