Sex Sells #27: Picking Up Girls Made Easy
Remember all those Picking Up Girls Made Easy ads in magazines back in the seventies? They were in basically every issue of National Lampoon, but they also popped up in everything from Playboy to People.... and I've been curious about it ever since. Unfortunately, I've never been able to get my hands on a copy, but have managed to get a hold of the corresponding 1975 record.
Besides being the lamest thing I've ever heard, it's also mildly creepy. The scenarios described on the record are absolutely ludicrous..... I pity any fool who actually tried to put these pick-up tactics into use. Even in the hypersexual seventies, these pick-up strategies wouldn't work on a nymphomaniac on ecstasy. Judge for yourself..
