In 1894, Methodist wife Ruth Smythers wrote a treatise for young brides and included essential advice such as appropriate night-wear for the wedded couple and how to discourage your spouse's amorous advances. The book is a side-splitting eye-opener into to how our love lives have changed in just over a century.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

Smythers, the wife of a Reverend, wrote in 1894: 'While sex is at best revolting and at worse rather painful, it has to be endured...Most men are by nature rather perverted, and if given half a chance, would engage in quite a variety of the most revolting practices'. This guide for young brides, although completely serious in its day, is now a humorous eye-opener to how mores have changed in just over a century, with advice on how to discourage your spouse's advances, appropriate night-wear and the acceptable length between sexual encounters.
