Not Sure I Have Anything To Add Here...


So, I ran across this old ad.  Basically, if your husband has withdrawn from you intimately, "instead of blaming him....she should question herself."

That's right - because Peggy doesn't douche with Lysol, Dave has lost all interest in sex.  This of course means:

1) Dave has a weird, antiseptic aromatherapy fetish,
2) Back then, people really, really, really, had no idea how Lysol was supposed to be used,
3)The Lysol label had 'simple directions' on how much to douche with,
4) Apparently, 'many doctors advise their patients to douche regularly with Lysol brand disinfectant.

I've decided what to do with my time machine.  And if I can't get a time machine, I'll just have to kill off some men in my next book.

It's actually CODE for Plan B birth control method--though douching with LYSOL tended to make getting pregnant later more difficult (that is if it managed to keep you from getting preggers in the first place.)

This is just a little reminder that then just as it is now--birth control is the woman's problem.

I would be appalled, but was already aware of this history...and ad. *LOL* Just like I know "personal massagers" were available for your average housewife in the 1890s (electrical ones) approximately 10 years before an electric vacuum cleaner was available on the market. Priorities, man, priorities.

Nothing says sexy like Lysol's scent...
