San Francisco Clinic Cures ‘Bad Girls’

  April 10, 1949, Bad Girls  

April 10, 1949: A San Francisco "promiscuity clinic" is working to treat "bad girls." No, really! After citing some terrifying statistics (68% of U.S. brides are not virgins!) Howard Whitman profiles the Psychiatric Service of the San Francisco City Clinic, which has "treated some 2,000 cases of promiscuity."

And while it has helped "many a young girl back to wholesome living," the clinic has made some amazing discoveries, including: "These girls don't enjoy sex." Got that, bad girls?

Tip: Avoid overstrictness. It makes a girl feel her parents have no faith in her. It creates resentment and stirs a desire to rebel.

    I am reminded of a statement by one of America’s leading intellectuals, Paladin on TeeVee’s “Have Gun, Will Travel.” He said, “There’s no good letting a girl with red hair cool off.”
