Your piece instantly brought me back to the time I was 10–11 years old (5th grade) when I took one of my mother’s books to school — I mean her study books, not written by her books, she was a professional midwife. She didn’t talk to us kids directly at the time, as we were too young, but she knew what was starting to happen inside our bodies hormone-wise, so she used to just leave her medical books ‘accidentally’ lying around in the house. The images shocked us first- me and my brother, next I realised the huuuuge potential for ‘popularity’ that these books could bring me. So, I took them to school and, as expected, they were a hit and made everybody also read the information that came with the images of giving birth. I still have those books. They were published in the 50s and 60s. They are well worn off. Your article made me take them out of the bookcase and browse them with a smile on my face :)
