Just when I start waxing nostalgic on the “good old days” I happen across this lovely ad from the early-to-mid 20th century. Now I understand where Jerry’s Dad gets the kerosene-as-hemorrhoid-cure idea from. I guess you can’t have hemorrhoids if your asshole is burned shut. I guess a man can’t smell a dirty pussy if you load it up with disinfectant. Sounds somewhat logical, eh?
I shudder to think of the effect of douching with Lysol cleaner. If I discovered my snatch is reeking like a tuna boat in high summer, obviously, I would be either a). wondering if I should be showering once or twice a day rather than once a month, and barring infrequent bathing as the cause of the malodorous affliction, I’d b.) start wondering if dear old Tom had been doing some tomcatting on the side and brought home a not so nice social disease. Maybe that hair pie smells rancid because of the clap? Does Tom have some ‘splainin’ to do? Did his mother not warn him of the hazards of dipping his wick in some strange without wrapping it?
I have no problem cleaning the floor with Lysol cleaner, or even adding it to a load of laundry that’s really skanky, (you can still buy liquid Lysol cleaner today) but methinks Lysol is a bit too harsh for feminine hygiene purposes even if you dilute it a bit.
It makes me so glad that I live in a somewhat more enlightened time. Now if we only had some polite way of telling the guys that the order of things is: shower, then BJ. If you’re really hot, you might get one in the shower.
