Amy doesn’t need to douche, but she knows I love apricot, lemon, strawberry, peach, cherry, raspberry, grape, pomegranate, blueberry and apple.

Here’s a douche advertisement from the 1970s where women are gently reminded of why douching can be good for one’s sex life. A very modern woman for the time, Amy’s nipple and armpit hair can clearly be seen in the ad. Not sure if high right hand is touching himself… but I’m pretty sure this ad wouldn’t get published too many places today.

The Volkswagen Theory of Evolution

Here’s a scan of a Volkswagen advertisement from 1963. The ad features a grid of black and white photos of the VW Beetle from 1949 to 1963 in order to highlight how little the Beetle’s design changed during that period. The ad is titled “The Volkswagen Theory of Evolution.”

Can you spot the Volkswagen with the fins? Or the one that’s bigger? Or smaller?
