Men’s personal ads from the ’60s are precious (13 Photos)

Desperation was strong with men way back in the 1960s. Nothing changes.

    #2 clearly didn't shoot himself in his bunker,ran away to the states for a more free sexual experience, no-one would ever know, although it would have given the game away had he said "no jewish".

    I love all the code words they had to use to get these printed in those days. A few of them I've never heard before.

      Is that what the "French" "Roman" and "Asian" (or was it "Oriental") were for?

      I shudder to ask, but any idea what they mean?

      • A BiPolar Guy

        Lots more is code though some seem obvious today, but not so much then. Others include expert horseman, home photography , tying, receptive, submissive, dominant, discrete, human behavior, rubber wear, probably I missed some.
        I'm surprised at the absence of Greek culture (anal) but roman is probably a synonym (memory fails me). French is oral if I recall, Oriental (it was the 60s we didn't say asian then) is probably B&D but I'm not sure. The asian dominatrix was (and maybe is) a popular fantasy. Witness one of the old Pink Panther moves where Kato turns Clouseau's apartment into a brothel when he is presumed dead, complete with an asian madame who chases the inspector with a whip (under the impression he wants this)
