The good old days...

This is an excerpt from a book which I stumbled across. Sadly, I do not know the name of the book.
I hope you can zoom in to read it. But just in case you can't (and because I really want you to read this!) I have also typed the text below.

Here you go:- 
'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 have to do for the 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 husband's 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 that your husband will then fall promptly asleep 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.' 


I don't know what you think, but (I think) this is a seriously disturbed author. (Surely, it can only be a man that would write like this?) If, on the rare chance the author is a woman, she certainly needs urgent help to discover herself and rebuild her self-worth! 

Don't get me wrong - I fully believe in respecting your partner, but not to the extent that one partner fades into the woodwork whilst the other has full control and dominance of the territory. Respect, not repress.

Probably explains why the children of that generation - after watching their parents through the years subsist in this manner - developed serious dysfunctional issues leading to drinking, drugs, wild partying, divorces and a huge increase in the popularity of medicine and law as good and profitable University courses to study! 

The partying continues even to today, but phew(!), I am so glad that it's 2011! Have a great day!

P.S. What exactly is congress??????


  1. I had a good belly-rumbling laugh at this. Do you really need to ask what 'congress' is? :o)

  2. :-) I'm struggling with how to use it in a sentence!
