Usually Herbert is the record-buyer of the family, but I couldn’t resist this junk shop find:
Released in 1963, How To Strip for Your Husband is a LP of tracks such as ‘Seduction of the Virgin Princess’ and ‘Lonely Little G-String’ performed by the Sonny Lester Orchestra.
But that’s not the best bit. Contained within is a little booklet of advice, purportedly written by ‘America’s Most Famous Strip-Teaser’, Ann Corio. In it, she calls the reader ‘honey’ a great deal and offers her advice on how to woo a disinterested husband.
I can’t do it justice by selecting excerpts, so I reproduce it in full here. Just remember, ladies: ‘the time it takes to roll down a silk stocking can be spell the difference between mink and mink-dyed muskrat!’
