Hai, Young Lovers! A Guide to 1960s Japanese Sex
Yes, oh God, yes! You read that right. I followed some link from a virtual retro encyclopedia to a site called Hello Damage which chronicles unusual products and literature from Japan and that included a scanned how to guide to sex from the 60s for young Japanese couples. Just to forewarn any delicate readers: I've omitted the one image containing nudity, and while the others don't show any actual body parts, they do use innocuous stand-ins for sexual acts. I hope no one is offended and I do recommend taking a look as several of these are just too darn funny.

How to jerk off a testtube.

Well, was it good for you, too? The only thing missing is how to smoke the post orgasm cigarette!
