This book was published in 1954 and this particular copy was bought by a mother for her son in 1963 and contains a heartfelt note in the front matter. If you want to see how things have changed since the 1960s, this book will really lay it out for you. Should you kiss at the end of a first date? I can imagine Allen Ludden's take on Portland's mayor Sam Adams having sex with Beau Breedlove on his 18th birthday welcoming him to the Gay community.
This book is full of archaic advice that reminds us life was at one time, pretty safe, friendly and wholesome. Now you never know what's coming your way!
