  1. I think that textbook is from earlier than the 60s (I have a working interest ... in PSHE history, not going to bed with men I hasten to add!).

  2. The language of it feels earlier to me but don't have the original source for it (apart from the link via twitter). Still the text gives me food for thought on how not to shock my husband with my face cream ;)

  3. What a thoroughly interesting array of links. I had the pleasure of catching some of these posts previously, but others are new to me and I'm really looking forward to reading all of them this afternoon.
