The pressed-men of England's seaports in the 18th century
Impressment, colloquially "the press" or the "press gang", is the taking of men into a military or naval force by compulsion, with or without notice. European navies of several nations used forced recruitment by various means. The large size of the British Royal Navy in the Age of Sail meant impressment was most commonly associated with Great Britain and Ireland

Interesting R2, how did they do that? It sounds like they would just grab men off the street? I assume men in trouble with the law might be given the option of navy or prison too?

The pirate is drunk and coming on a bit strong. The young guy is still a virgin and although he’s intrigued and flattered by the much older mans interest he’s still scared. He wants to be taken but gently and he doesn’t like the smell of hooch on the mans breath. Not a boy, not yet a man.

R3 The Press-Gangs stole men from seaport inns under the cover of darkness, secrecy and inebriation.
England was still a feudal place. Each parish town had its stocks and gallows but the concept of 'justice' hadn't yet reached the small sea towns and rural shires.

Now I understand the double meaning of the title of that 90s show Press Gang, considering Julia Sawalha's character in it.

The style of this drawing is just like the drawings I would see in the books my uncles used to own when they were children that I would find left in my grandmother's house when I visited. Like from Boys Adventures stories or Mystery novels from the 60s.
I can remember feeling a bit... funny... or a bit... tingly... sometimes when I looked at them, or even read them and they would talk about them getting undressed for bed or something.
So seeing this picture sort of puts me in that headspace again. I always imagined myself in the position of a character in these pictures too, and this was way before puberty even.

It was a discovery hiding in plain sight. All you have to do is pour salt on them and they shrivel-up and blow away. Within days the world was void of females, well except for the handful kept to make sandwiches and do the laundry

In the Chaos Walking world, the latest Tom Holland movie, based on a beloved YA trilogy, the world has also become womanless and Tom is raised by a gay couple. The Maze Runner world, YA books and movies, also starts off womanless.

R35 I guessed that it was Robert Louis Stevenson! But the ethnicity in that comic book cover looks wrong.
The Wiki precis of the plot is very complicated.
I remember another story in this genre where the hero is drinking in a tavern at nighttime but wakes the following morning on an unknown ship far out to sea.
