Lust In Their Hearts And Their Armpits

I was cutting up some crumbling vintage magazines and came across a few magnificent advertisements. I'll post more - but I think this one is my favorite, it's from a magazine that was published in the 1950s.

This ad must have made all those gals terrified that people were going to smell the dirty business all over them.

I've been a follower of your blog for some time and I just gotta say: you find the craziest stuff.

Thank you for the laugh!

OMG can you imagine the mad rush to go buy Arrid? Too funny. Come to think of it, I think my Granny used Arrid. Oh my!

:-O
That's some crazy advert there. I can't believe I lived all my life without having even HEARD of sex perspiration! Between you and me; I'd never have guessed it would be considered offensive ;-)

Why were they wearing clothes during sex? Well, I guess it was the 50s.

Do you think people will be laughing about our ads in 50 years? Some of them make me laugh now... like Cialis ("See a doctor immediately if you have an erection lasting longer than 4 hours.") Tee hee hee... get's me every time.

Good thing I already use Arrid for all my sexpiration needs.

Who thought perspiration could be used as a scare tactic on keeping ladies pure? Because basically it's saying: you do the dirty, everyone will smell it! You smell like a ... "experienced woman". I think my fav parts of old mags like this are the ads. Awesome find - love it!
