Notice that the pitch is aimed at women.

Any woman worth her salt knows what her man wants in the bedroom. Its the truly intelligent ones who provide it on a regular basis. The way to a man's heart is NOT through his stomach, if you get the important stuff right he will take you out to dinner. Before anyone accuses me of sexist remarks, a man is also responsible to keep his lady happy in bed. It goes both ways.

Looks like it belongs on

Harvey...I often mis-spell here. But 1880 proof readers were supposed to be better.

@Expat .. Figured it belonged on this thread better. We are watching episodes of "Sex Sent Me to the ER". Seemed appropriate.

Expat: the second page announces "Everything there is to know about the Horse". Did this publisher know something about New York women that I don't?

They're about the same thing. Usually hard working but require close supervision, not too bright, and useful in other ways. The biggest difference is with a horse you check the teeth to determine the age with a woman you'd best look at the hands.

Except, of course, in the case of Sarah Jessica Parker.

Not to take away anyone's titillation, but in the late 19th century and early twentieth century the term "love-making" referred not to sex, but to wooing, or winning someone's affections. This would have been something like the very early version of "The Rules Book", the 1995 dating guide for women that was quite the fad for awhile.

"He's making violent love to me!"

From page 22 of the book: "The lover, having now secured his position, should use discretion and tact in his intercourse with the lady's family..."

You morons. "Love making" simply meant "romance" back then. This is a book about courtship, not "making your man happy in bed". How pathetic that idiocracy has progressed so far in such a short time.

We're pros.

We were just kidding around, no need to be a dick about it.
