Nothing New Under The Sun

One of my finds (see my last post ) was the book called Married Love by Marie Stopes. Marie is said to have written this after the crushing failure of her 1st marriage, which was unconsummated due to her husbands impotence. The marriage was annulled, and Marie was in the unusual position of being a virgin divorcee. After this disaster she set out to write a book which would explain everything a young married couple (sex before marriage was frowned upon, so Married Love is a euphemism for sex) needed to know to have a happy and healthy sex life together. All this was back in 1923! Check out Married Love, and my other finds on the link below. Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again.
