Amazing old sex guide pix reveal everything your grandparents knew about doin' it!
Long ago, before three assbreaks a day became the birthright of anyone with a computer in the house, Americans had to learn about sex the hard way: through ridiculous books like The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Sex, now scanned for your examination at Studies in Crap on our Style Council blog.
Of course, it used to be illegal to send anything the least bit sexy through the mail, so marital manuals could only depict the bits beneath our skin, which means most illustrations look like Lovecraftian nightmares from deep outer space.
But at least the words were helpful, right?
"During the phase when man was half animal, copulation was carried out from behind, as animals still do today, and the clitoris then still played an important part." (page 280).
Either way, there is much, much more of this madness over at this week's Studies in Crap!
