Oldies But Goodies

Illustration for article titled Oldies But Goodies

Attention, everyone: 20th century Barnard students were loose women. Well, not really, but that seems to be the underlying message of this 1920s article about a controversial "purity survey" in a Columbia University humor magazine. Here were some of the survey's findings: 50% of the women indulged in necking, 34% "soul kissed", 49% had kissed ten different dudes, 66% were tipplers, and 32 women had been "tight." We'll leave it to you to figure out that last one. [Susie Bright's Journal]
