Synopsis

In 1894, Ruth Smythers, 'Beloved wife of The Reverend L. D. Smythers', wrote:'While sex is at best revolting and at worse rather painful, it has to be endured...One cardinal rule of marriage should never be forgotten: give little, give seldom and, above all, give grudgingly...Most men are by nature rather perverted, and if given half a chance, would engage in quite a variety of the most revolting practices.'The Methodist wife didn't intend to be amusing, but this brief treatise written for young brides is side-splitting today and an eye-opener to how mores have changed in just over a century.It includes essential advice on: how to discourage your spouse's amorous advances; appropriate night-wear for the wedded couple; and, the acceptable length and frequency of unavoidable sexual encounters.

Bizarre but interesting although skimpy 13. Januar 2013
Von Margaret L. Carter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I strongly suspected this little book of being a recently written hoax rather than an authentic reprint from 1894, because it so faithfully reflects the popular caricature of what people nowadays THINK the Victorians thought about sexuality. The true situation was much more nuanced, especially this late in the century. The "advice" given by this author sounds very much like a satire on (what some people think of as) modern women's evasive techniques to avoid marital intimacy, and it's hard to imagine a Christian minister's wife advocating behavior that would cause unhappiness and strife in marriage. Also, I'm not even sure the usage of "sex" to mean "sexual intercourse" was prevalent in popular speech at that time, although I haven't been able to confirm that one way or the other. However, a search turned up what looks like a genuine scan of a newspaper page from 1894, displaying this article. (If a hoax, then, it's a very elaborate one -- but it's surprising to think of such frank writing being allowed in a newspaper of general circulation at that time.)

Yes, it's an article, not a book. So the modern reprint, this miniature book being sold here, is more like a hardbound pamphlet, with a sentence or two on each page. You can read the whole thing in under ten minutes. Buy it for the novelty value, but be warned that you aren't getting much content.

A Hoax. Not a Real Historical Document 14. Juli 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Everyone should know that this book is fake. The authorship is certainly modern (1950s or 60s) and it has been passed off as an authentic historical document ever since. However, it IS NOT A GENUINE HISTORICAL DOCUMENT. Search as you might, you will never find the so-called original publication (which was supposedly published in the Madison Institute Newsletter, 1894). Also, the author titles herself the wife of a Methodist Minister, however in the 1890s the Methodist church did not typical refer to itself that way. They still used the term Wesleyan in almost all publications.

It is documents such as this that have been used, historically, to paint an incredibly inaccurate portrayal of sexuality prior to the 1920s. Evidence showing quite a different view of sex abound in the 19th century, including the wide circulation of such pornographic publications as The Pearl and The Oyster.

Also, other publications of the era which served as sexual advice to brides are VERY different from the so-called advice given here. An example would be "Sexual science, including manhood, womanhood, and their mutual interrelations", By Orson Fowler (1870).

A great little book. 21. Dezember 2014
Von HenryH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Great little book. I never questioned the books authenticity: that's not the point. It is just a hilarious read. Some of the pages had me laughing out loud. It could have been longer, so don't pay too much for it.
