This 1912 Brothel Menu Is the Dirtiest Thing You’ll See Today

This 1912 Brothel Menu Is the Dirtiest Thing You’ll See Today:

We tend to believe that people were very uptight prior to the sexual revolution of the 1960s. From the Puritans coming to America wearing their sexually unappealing black-on-black-on-black color coordinated outfits to the buttoned-up blouses and hoop skirts of the 1950s, it’s hard to believe anyone could find a reason to get it on before the birth of the bikini.

Now recently unearthed research proves people around the turn of the century could be downright filthy. A feminist blogger tweeted a picture of a menu from a 1912 brothel showing a list of provided services that would make Quentin Tarantino blush.

Anyone else think this is just an elaborate advertisement for a new movie? Maybe the Pineapple Express sequel will be a reboot set in the early 20th century with opium dealers instead stoners.

Real or not, you should definitely order the Pinkey’s Special next time you go to a restaurant.
