Let's Post Pictures of Old Magazine Ads

This '90s Calvin Klein Obsession ad was one of the first things that made me know I liked boys more than girls.

I walked right pass Jim Palmer a couple months ago at the Orioles Fanfest here in Baltimore. He was there signing autographs, and he had this air about him like he knew he was the shit. I have to say, he does still look great.

I love the suggestiveness in that ad..."I'm always PITCHING a winning combination..." I only see I'm always PITCHING a tent..."

Blew so many loads to the Jim Palmer ads.

And also the Calvin Klein ads - one specifically with a man in "tighty whities" where his bulge was visible and he was otherwise naked. Gorgeous man in the sun. So sexy.

In the late 1920s Lysol disinfectant began being marketed by maker Lysol, Incorporated and distributor Lehn & Fink, Inc. as a feminine hygiene product. They intimated that vaginal douching with a diluted Lysol solution prevented infections and vaginal odor, and thereby preserved youth and marital bliss. [8] This Lysol solution was also used as a birth control agent, as post-coital douching was a popular method of preventing pregnancy at that time. [9] The use of Lysol was later discouraged by the medical community as it tended to eliminate the bacteria normal to the healthy vagina, thus allowing more robust, health-threatening bacteria to thrive, and may have masked more serious problems that certain odors indicated in the first place. [10] All the same, Joseph De Lee, a prominent American obstetrician who held great sway over American obstetric practice through his writings, encouraged the use of Lysol during labor. He writes in 1938, "...[J]ust before introducing the hand, the vagina is liberally flushed with 1 per cent lysol solution squeezed from pledgets of cotton, the idea being to reduce the amount of infectious matter unavoidably carried into the puerperal wounds and up into the uterus by the manipulations." [11]

Looking at it again, I don't think I was far from wrong.

R51, here is some scandalous information regarding your photo of Jack Scalia, the little shit, from his Wiki.


According to a July 3, 2011 report by the New York Post the IRS revoked the tax-exempt status from Scalia's "9-11-01 Lest We Forget" charitable group for failing to file a tax return in its decade of existence. That same year, Scalia's Operation American Spirit charity was suspended by California authorities because of lapses in paying taxes and fees.[12]

On July 17, 2011 the New York Post published another report on additional discrepancies regarding Scalia's fundraising efforts, including accusations that intended benefactors from the Operation American Spirit 2007 fund-raising bicycle ride never received any compensation. In the report, a veteran of the Iraq War accused Scalia of utilizing his charities to "to build his career back up."[13]

Scalia told the Post he "couldn't remember who received the money collected" by the fundraising effort. His lawyer, Dennis Holahan, mentioned two charities which received small amounts.[13] As of 2012, no legal recourse has been taken against Scalia, who has maintained his innocence.
