Retro Rules Of Attraction ::

Reported by Tristan Ingram on January 3, 2008

A 17th century book offering dating tips appeared at auction in the UK this year months after it was discovered in the collection of a recently deceased Yorkshire book trader.

“The Ladies Dictionary, Being A General Entertainment For The Fair Sex” includes love tips including bathing in red wine to get in the mood, timeless advice on affairs (‘they often end in 'blood and disgrace') and equally contemporary advice on first date etiquette.

“Is it proper for a woman to yield at the first address?” the Dictionary asks, “You'll get better conditions if the enemy does not know how weak you are within.” (Metro. UK)

Less forward thinking advice appeared in a US book “Sex Secrets of an American Geisha: How to Attract, Satisfy and Keep Your Man” which suggested women should ‘always make your man your highest priority’, ‘give him credit for your orgasm’ and ‘never refuse your man’s offer of sex.’

“When your man asks to him sex with you, agree to do so enthusiastically so that he never experiences rejection,” the book also recommended.

“Should you be too ill to make love, you can make him feel better by saying, “I’d love to make love to you right now, but I’m achy all over.” Follow that up by telling him the next available time when you should be able to make love. You might say, “I know I’ll feel better in the morning. Can we set the alarm a half hour early and make love then?”
