Vibe

This is the most lovely ad for a vibrator. It can "cure disease at home." I find it interesting that it's for "All Men and Women" Usually, these were marketed for the "hysterical" woman Whoo Whoo! No more "curing" your diseases in public!! I really want to turn this into some kind of card. Any suggestions are welcome! … [Read more...]

Keep in mind this was a real ad. Some gal was looking for Jell-o recipes and reads this. It brings a whole bunch of images I didn't need this morning. Enjoy!   Image found at Vintage Ads … [Read more...]

_________swim_suits

_________Rubber_Garments

Who knew you only had to wear rubber and lose weight? Maybe the people with a rubber fetish are on to something? Can you imagine how smelly people were wearing these? *shudder* "worn by the Royalty of Europe and the Society of America" Which Royalty and Society? I'm surprised they don't have endorsements from those folks. If you put medicated in a title, it will sell like hotcakes! Would any of you wear this? … [Read more...]

radium

More fun with radium! Who knew that it could help a man's sex life? I don't normally copy these ads word for word, however, this one is worth it: "Vita Radium Suppositories, for rectal use by men, are tone restores of sex and energizers for the entire nervous, glandular and circulatory systems. These Suppositories contain a result-producing amount of highly refined soluble RADIUM, carried in a cocoa butter base. The radium is absorbed thru the walls of the lower colon, enters the blood stream and is carried to all parts of the body-to the weakened organs that need its vitalizing aid. After leaving its durable HEALTHY RESULTS, the radium is gradually eliminated in about three days. Vita Radium Suppositories are guaranteed entirely harmless. Recommended for sexually week men who, however, should use the NU_MAN Tablets in connection for best results. Also, splendid for piles and rectal sores. Try them and see what good results you get!"    Ad found via orau.org … [Read more...]
