Sex Tips for Husbands and Wives from 1894

Author(s): Ruth Smythers


In 1894, Ruth Smythers, 'Beloved wife of The Reverend L. D. Smythers', wrote: 

'One cardinal rule of marriage should never be forgotten: give little, give seldom and, above all, give grudgingly...' 

The Methodist wife didn't intend to be amusing, but this brief treatise written for young brides is side-splitting today and an eye-opener to how our love lives have changed in just over a century.
