Would you believe these ads?

Back in the day -- in the era of the show "Mad Men'' -- sexist ads were routine.
But even that show didn't dare to show some of the ads printed back then.
Here's a link:
http://curioushistorian.com/vintage-ads-that-would-never-be-allowed-today

You can click through them but here's a brief description of some of them:
There's a car ad that says, "Like a spirited woman who needs to be tamed.''
Another says, "Successful marriages start in the kitchen.''
A ad for a slide projector that says "World's finest projection equipment'' with a picture of a woman filling a sweater.
A picture of appliances telling women to tell their husbands which ones they want. "If he doesn't go to the start immediately, cry a little, just a little. He'll go. He'll go.''
A picture of a woman on her knees presenting breakfast in bed to her man.
Another says, Harder a wife works, the cuter she looks.
Then there was a woman on her husband's lap about to be spanked. Well, we won't coe'smplain about that.
Anyway, you can click through the link if you want to see more. There are 30 of them. Shows how times have changed.

  1. Thanks for sharing, FD...the ads made me laugh but gotta say I did find the narrative accompanying each picture offensive. Good gravy...talk about butt hurt...it was a totally different time.
