This is a darn classic and deserves a second airing it’s so magical! So here goes….
I have had this for sometime in my files…today it must be unleashed!
For clearer reading the full transcript is below:
This is an actual extract from a sex education text book for girls, printed in the early ’60’s in the UK and explains quite a lot….
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. But remember to look your best when going to bed.
Try to achieve a look that is welcoming without being obvious. 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. 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. In all things be led by your husbands wishes; do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. Should your husband suggest congress then agree humbly all the while being mindful that a man’s satisfaction is more important than a woman’s.
When he reaches his moment of fulfillment a small moan from yourself 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 be obedient and uncomplaining but register any reluctance by remaining silent. It is likely your husband will then fall promptly to sleep 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.
As ever the problem has always been women followed by any choice of brown people (Mexicans are currently en vogue I hear) and then Meghan Markle. I do wish these sectors would freshen up and await their masters bidding without so much fuss! 😂

I may have replied to this a long time ago, but I just reread it and almost shot coffee out my nose…🤭hahaha… Then I may have rolled my eyes out loud “good grief” 🙄
Hehe! Hallo you! Hope your nose is recovered!
‘……any of the more unusual practices’…… now I’m woning what the author has in mind?
When did I miss that, Imogene? Early 60’s? 1860’s, right?
Yours ever, Alistair.
Ha ha if only! And in a lot of minds it still exists today.
It does. Much to my dismay, it still does. Have a nice week-end none the less.
[…] first saw this post here. There is an actual photographic image of the page in this blog post taken from a sex education […]
I’m so glad I wasn’t around in the 50s! Goodness me. Nothing about pleasing a woman, nothing at all.
Zero! The mindset is incredible.
That is a fascinating piece. I’m grateful I live in the 21st century.
Hey Gazza! Right? Be over soon. Get the tea on!
You’re on 😃
The good old fashion women of the 50’s are all gone.
Great post! So glad I wasn’t alive in that era – I would’ve probably died prematurely due to all the hassle and stress from that kind of maintenance haha
It is rather too much isn’t it? 🙂
[…] I found the above picture from a magazine article from the 1960’s on the same feminist’s blog. These women there also criticize the wisdom of the advice given and even go so far as to claim […]
Thanks for posting this, it was incredibly funny. It’s not hard to understand why so many women have never had an orgasm, all that worrying about creams and tea…
Some, not all, of this sounds reasonable. I don’t like to judge other time periods because I’m sure the future will judge us even more harshly.
Let’s face it. There’s plenty to judge.
Wow.. 12 years of marriage and I’ve been doing it wrong the whole time.
You see? 😉
Ah…the good ole days.
A Proverbs 31 woman.
If only women followed this advice.
I keep poppin’ off at the mouth,
with things I shouldn’t have said,
but don’t worry, I have a shotgun,
and I’ll soon be dead! 🙂
Yes indeed, I always wait to see if my husband wants sex before I put my cold cream and rollers in.
What were the directions for Lesbian marriage?
Ha ha! You got me there! Lesbian activity and any other activity beyond missionary submission or being subjugated to any paternal perversions of Mr Hubby was of course frowned upon. – Not much has changed in some places today of course.
Thanks for following me! Seriously, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and am on my way to check out more of your posts. The poor women of the 18, I mean 1960s lol.
Not sure how my husband would take this. I mean, seriously, if Mama’s not happy…well, you know:
“If he feels that he needs to sleep immediately then so be it. In all things be led by your husbands wishes; do not pressure him in any way to stimulate intimacy. Should your husband suggest congress then agree humbly all the while being mindful that a man’s satisfaction is more important than a woman’s.”
Those poor women, smh. No wonder some of them got with the milkman.
..or went slightly squiffy! They put a lot of women in mental asylums at that time…beginning to wonder if the women didn’t prefer it!
That’s both hilarious and horrifying in its own way.
How times have changed.
Thanks for the follow also 🙂
Ha ha too true! 🙂
Reblogged this on Aging Inappropriately and commented:
In light of the recent lively feminist debate (I’m not sure how a blog about the angst related to menopause turned to a feminist debate, but so be it) I found this on a new reader’s blog (The Journal) and wanted to share, because somehow it’s related. I’m not sure how, but I’m sure someone will write a manifesto and tell me-
“When he reaches his moment of fulfillment a small moan from yourself is encouraging to him and quite sufficient to indicate any enjoyment that you may have had.”
That one works even today 😉
Ooh ooh.. just reread the post and found this gem: “Should your husband suggest congress then agree humbly all the while being mindful that a man’s satisfaction is more important than a woman’s.”
And now I’m officially stalking you.
Ha ha! Lol!
Oh my god! I am glad I live in the times when I can laugh at the sheer absurdity of this piece of shit!
QUITE INTERESTING AND MEANINGFUL.
My thanks for following my blog, I too am following yours with immediate effect.
There MUST have been a camera in my bedroom.
Well, I wouldn’t say that the world was “Happier” in those days. More peaceful, of course, because the women were apparently encouraged to be completely submissive, soy yeah, that’s a way towards peace… not the right way, but it’s definately a way.
Yeah, just rule over subordinates and everyone’s happy…or at least some people!
Oh my my! Doesn’t make men and women equal. Although I have never seen any equality between the sexes anyways. (Apologies to the feminists).
Guess times have changed after all! It’s easy to look back with rose-tinted glasses at a time like this, but I’ll remember this every time I start going down that road. It’s a shame that although women are more empowered in modern society they seem to be sexually objectified more than ever. Still a lot of work to do! Thanks for sharing
Good points made Luke, in many ways women are no freer today.
And now, after calling this “strange,” women are wondering where all the good men have gone. Treat a guy like a prince, and a gal like a princess, and everybody gets along. Just sayin.
Interesting viewpoint honordads.
Wow. That is really sad and disgusting. To sit silently while something uncomfortable/unusual (possibly painful!) was being done to me by my husband? I don’t think so. Women weren’t created to be used! It sounds like they are training women in s & m:(
Indeed. Weird eh?
Thank you for finding and following my blog. In answer to the above article, I can’t think of anything appropriate apart from have men’s attitudes changed?
Hallo Shirley! I think some have. What percentage that is I couldn’t tell you!
I heard something even worse on the radio today. A discussion on women being allowed to be Bishops in the Church of England. One man said he would leave the Church if this happened, he would never accept a woman as a Bishop, and a woman (yes a woman!) said that men are the head of the household and women shouldn’t try and put themselves above a man! Are they all forgetting that our Queen is head of the Church? I despair!
Ah, good old fashioned brainwashing Shirley…never fails does it? 🙂
That is so upsetting!
Reblogged this on maknmoh's Blog.
Thank goodness we have evolved! I don’t know what’s funnier…the book excerpt or the comments. Hilarious! 🙂 and Thanks for the follow, I love your site and your sense of humor…priceless!
Thanks India. You have one of the coolest headers I’ve seen for a while and totally captures how I know a lot of newbies feel.
Haha! The funny thing is, it totally captured what I was feeling when I decided to stop thinking about starting a blog and just do it…I was so excited and scared at the same time.
My comment got lost – faulty connection.
The image stands to become significant social commentary, add a few more kittens and random culturally significant objects.
The young ‘ lady’s” pose is a parody/cliche of adolescent male fantasy expectations.
My problem now, is having clicked like on the post, my blogs now feature that image in the set of posts I like. I will have go and like more suitable images quickly.
Thanks for visiting my Implied Spaces blog. I also have a Media Literacy blog, Dark Pines media, that you may find of interest. 😉
Bye. Off to visit other likeable posts, pronto. 😀
Thank you! I think though that you are commenting on another post but have posted it on THIS post! 🙂
But it’s all good – I hear you!
Just to clarify does “You missed a bit when you re-grouted around the bath?” class as a small moan?
My husband did not find it at all erotic.
Waaaaah! Lol! I CAN NOT think why that was not included word for word in this manual! 😀
Reblogged this on jessabelltuminelli and commented:
This is a hilarious story. I can’t believe it was at one time try. Reblog! 🙂
I love that!!! I am going to reblog that!! it is so hilarious… my husband only wishes!! (small moan) 🙂
Wow. I have to say this is definitely funny to me, especially since I can definitely believe it was printed in all earnestness back then. Could you imagine a modern version of this article?
“When preparing for bed hopefully you have a separate sink and counter than your spouse and it doesn’t matter if you are both getting ready for bed at the same time. If not, duke it out and see who gets there first. Don’t forget! Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! If that means you’ll have a green mask on for the night, don’t worry about it – you’re spouse will get used to it. If sex comes into the picture make sure to drag it out as long as possible, especially if your spouse is male – once he’s done, it’s done. Screaming, yelling and moaning are all acceptable forms of praise for your spouse’s work. Should your spouse not succeed in making it a pleasurable time for you, feel free to complain – loudly.”
Lol. It would never happen! 🙂
OMG! Seriously? I’m almost speechless. Thank god I was born in the 70’s. Not sure how I would’ve survived previous eras. Written by a man for men really..
Isn’t most legislation / religion?
Thanks Mrs Zen.
What a hoot! Hardly seems possible that this was only in the 60s, sounds like some of the priests I have known. Thank goodness we have come a long way since then.
Also thank you for following me.
You are welcome Sheila. 🙂
Wait! Which 60s? Sounds more like the 1860s than a mere 50 years ago. Even the British were never that buttoned down, after the Stones and Beatles came upon the scene.
I can just imagine (no pun intended) what John Lennon would have done, had he read this piece.
It seems like the 1860s to me because England was in the midst of Beatlemania in the 60s. It was the Mod generation. This sounds like it was written by someone desperately trying to fight the tide.
Clearly they didn’t win!
