the status of an exercise in scientific inquiry. Although some parts of the
magazine appear to be simply informative (sex, celebrities, fashion, advice), even
these provide a set of measures — an ideal — against which young women are

standards had been imbibed along with other mainstream values, since it
directed almost all of its advice on proper sexual conduct towards young black
women, warning that "Boredom, loneliness, too much idle time and even the
strong desire to be popular, account for a number of good girls going astray."43
The magazine averred that pre-marital virginity was the "moral ideal" in American

comportment.49 A steady stream of articles addressed to "young unmarried
ladies" offered "friendly hints" about appropriate conduct in the presence of men.
"Caution and circumspection," warned one such piece, "ought ever to be on the
watch, and externally pleasing appearances examined with an eagle's eye."
Those who gave way to "wild passion" and "sufferjed] unbridled desire to warp
the true bent of the soul," ...

pregnancy could have used the edicts of Angela Macnamara to hold off
importunate boyfriends and thus give them (the women) a few extra years of
earning and freedom. In the 1960s, many Irish people still objected to young
women having education, good jobs, independent living, friends outside the
family and sexual information. Macnamara robustly defended young people's
rights to all of these things; the strictness of her advice about sexual conduct has
to be understood against ...

interaction on dates.63 The 1958 advice book The Art of Dating warned young
women about ...

ones directed toward women, became increasingly available and sexually
explicit, read as much for their sexual advice as for their medical information.47

illicit sex. Although both sexes were seen as culpable for sexual seductions,

entitled “Advice to a Child” in Andover, Massachusetts. He assured his
congregation that his sermon ...
