From A Complete Sexual Science and A Guide to Purity and Physical Manhood, Containing Advice to Maiden, Wife, and Mother on how to Love, Court, Marry, etc. by Professor B.G Jefferis and J.L. Nichols, copyright 1895. There are so many gems to this I don’t know where to begin. I do, in fact, know where to end.
It doesn’t get much better than the cocaine, champagne, and bromide Octopus of Evil Habits and “High Life”. First seen on NYC’s The Strand’s Tumblr, this magnificent tome can be found in its entirely at Project Gutenberg and on Amazon (get it on your Kindle, folks!!).
I raise a glass to all of us who successfully chose the Fast Life and Dissipation route. Cheers to the Octopus and Happy Friday, Lovelies!
