Quote of the day

"Man was created strong. Woman was created weak. Therefore, it is up to the man to protect his woman. Woman is so physically constituted that she needs man’s strong protection."

So claimed Pietro Ramirez Sr in How To Make Love, which he saw as fulfilling the need for "a book written by a modern writer for modern people who live and love in a modern way". Needless to say, the guide to wooing first published in the 1930s comes across as rather less than modern today...
