Vintage Scan #3: Contraceptive Ad Raises Questions
Look at the back pages of magazines like LIFE, The Saturday Evening Post,
etc. in the early seventies and you'll find a lot of contraceptive ads offering the buyer complete privacy and great values. I have a couple questions on this...
1. Was it that embarrassing to buy a condom in 1974 that you felt the need to order them from a magazine?
2. Were seventies dudes getting so much action back then that they needed to buy in bulk at a discount?
