The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

From LOOK, 7/27/1943, one of the first ads to produce solutions looking for problems. Click on the ad to see a readable version.

Lysol, the great disinfectent. I've been told it works for sore throats also. Kill two birds with one stone?

yeah, they're not telling the women to exactly bathe in the lysol in the traditional sense. the ad was intended for a more "internal use" for that not so fresh feeling, if you catch my drift.

Holy shit!!! I hate to think of women doing that to themselves.

Chad is right. What you might want to do, Bob, is dangle a certain part in a lysol solution for that Fresh Manly Feeling!!!

Lysol kills twat rot.

But use a scrub brush before you dangle that part, just to make sure that the pores are opened up.

Lysol was used as a contraceptive when birth control was illegal - that's what these ads are referring to. "Germs" = sperm.
