Regarding those terribly risqué ads...

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

If you're interested in reading what one critic had to say about ads like the ones directly below, here's a great example that's pretty darn amusing, if you ask me:

"...it is terrible that our boys and girls should have their curiosity sharpened upon forbidden subjects by having so-called 'advertisements' relating to such subjects constantly coming under their eyes as soon as they are able to spell out words in the newspaper which lies upon the table in the family sitting-room, or which they find thrown around in the kitchen. For the papers...make no secret of their vile trade in assignations and seductions...A constant keeping before the eyes of young people of the fact that a great many persons in this uneven world are living vicious and scandalous lives so far as morality is concerned, and yet seem...to be having a good time of it, must inevitably...be fatal to a high moral tone of character, if nothing worse."


He never really addresses what it means that these horribly vicious persons are having a good time of it, of course.
