6 THINGS I’M 72.8% SURE YOU DON’T KNOW ABOUT TURN OF THE CENTURY LOVE MAKING


#1: In the mid 1800s to the early 1900s, condoms were made by wrapping actual strips of rubber around penis molds and then cured in a chemical solution.


#2: In 1900, a night of passion at Chicago’s famous Everleigh (brothel) Club would cost you $50. A bottle of champagne would set you back you only 12 bucks. 



#3: Before he founded DC comics, Jack Liebowitz originally published nudie and sex pulp magazines.

#4: New York socialite Mary Phelps Jacob is credited for inventing the first modern design of the brassiere (bra).


#5: Paul Ehrlich discovered the cure for the STD Syphilis in 1909.


#6: Artist model Evelyn Nesbit was America’s sex icon of the early 1900s. She also helped plot the murder of her ex-lover / famous architect – Stanford White.

  11. To be fair to Jack Liebowitz, doesn't everyone involved in comics start with drawing erotica of some nature?

  15. shit, I actually knew all of those!!
    To be fair the first 5 months of my year were about birth control and the changes for women (and the last 4 years prior was women's health junk).
    I would like to take this hijacking opportunity to say that Dr. Graffenberg is my hero. Look him up. Your wife will thank me later.

  20. So I believe this was around the same time that women who were thought to be psychotic were masturbated by medical staff in mental hospitals. Kinda creepy if ya ask me.

  28. I will admit that I only know about Paul Elritch...everything else was new to me. I think the strangest thing the was the design of the original condoms.

  29. That is all awesome. My hubby was telling me that Wonder Woman use to be all BDSM back in the day...crazy

  30. Hey, there's no evidence that Evelyn Nesbit helped plan the murder of Stanford White--her hubby Harry K. Thaw did it all himself. But what the hey, why hold back, she's been dead for decades and can't sue you for libel!

  31. Ehrlich is a personal hero to many.
