A few months ago I stumbled across a rather interesting (and ridiculous) historical article which described how to have sex with your husband in the 1960s. The rules the women were taught to follow are hugely out of place in today’s society, but it nevertheless served as an insight to how things used to be (in the not too distant past) and, what’s more, how things still are in many societies today.

Then, something happened that completely blew me away. But first, a little preamble:

I saw this posted on social media in various places and thought it was fun! Let’s have some fun on a Friday afternoon…
1) How do YOU brush your teeth? Pick a number.

Ok so I came across this post in my WordPress reader and simply had to re-post it here for you. Because it is ABSOLUTELY… Brilliant? Ridiculous? Hilarious?
I’ll let you be the judge.
Disclaimer: if you’re a shrinking violet or shy about sexual matters, perhaps it might be best if you simply turn away from this post because the last thing I intend to do is annoy or offend anyone. I did insert a few commentary for your (and my) entertainment – to be taken with a grain of salt. 😉
PS Much of the world is still in this exact ‘state of mind’… (just saying).
