Sex Manual Returned to New York Public Library 54 Years Past Due Date

The book is called Ideal Marriage: Its Physiology and Technique, and a librarian named (delightfully) Billy Parrott wrote about its late return at the NYPL's blog; the copy of Ideal Marriage was due August 1959, and was mailed from Arizona last year with an note:

We found this book amongst my late brother-in-law's things. Funny thing is the book didn't support his efforts with his first (and only) marriage... it failed! No wonder he hid the book! So sorry!!

A shocked in-law

After the jump, the Ideal Marriage Google Books word cloud, which includes my least favorite word of all time.

hehehe

I'm just glad "moist" isn't part of the word cloud. People who whine about the word "moist" always come off like they're chasing some imagined zeitgeist, along with people who make a big deal of how scary clowns are.

@beetnemesis hey man, the m-word grosses me right the eff out. That said, coitus is pretty gross-sounding too. *shudder*

@heyderpette You are a thought criminal.

But yes, "coitus" is pretty terrible.

Crazy, but true - I OWN this book!!! It's a hilarious read. I love to collect old, odd books and when i found this in my dad's (!!) bookshelf, i couldn't believe it.
