QuoteIn the 1860s, a small but impassioned debate broke out in both England, France, and the U.S. regarding the potentially "exciting" effects of the sewing machine. That's right--doctors worried that the rhythmic pumping of the thighs resulted in sexual arousal and that women workers were using the machines to stimulate themselves. Equal parts hilarious and infuriating, it is a story that brings up questions of the industrial use of women's bodies, their unanswered complaints of fatigue and ailment, masculine control of female sexual processes, and the threat of a working woman enjoying a private pleasure. In short, it's a juicy one. (Pun most definitely intended.)

Little Johnny might be a little rough around the edges---but to have him picking on us for being old and worn out just makes him seem mean. LOL.BTW before I share this next one, does anyone remember the old TV show "Hollywood Squares" and or the entertainer "Grandpa Jones" of Grand ole opery fame?
