All the following crazy facts are true and can be verified easily.
There are many reasons why historians choose to edit facts before they are delivered to the population. Here is a list of examples which will show you why you should not believe that the past was so different than today.
1 – Anne Frank
Anne Frank’s diary talked a lot about masturbation, but most of it was edited out.
Here is one except of such part of the diary:
“Until I was eleven or twelve, I didn’t realize there was a second set of labia on the inside, since you couldn’t see them. What’s even funnier is that I thought urine came out of the clitoris…When you’re standing up, all you see from the front is hair. Between your legs there are two soft, cushiony things, also covered with hair, which press together when you’re standing, so you can’t see what’s inside. They separate when you sit down and they’re very red and quite fleshy on the inside. In the upper part, between the outer labia, there’s a fold of skin that, on second thought, looks like a kind of blister. That’s the clitoris” (source: http://www.thegloss.com/culture/diary-of-anne-frank-pornographic-passage/)
2 – John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy was dating Miss Denmark (Inga Arvad – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inga_Arvad) in the 1940’s, and when they stayed at Sumter House in Charleston the FBI bugged their room because they thought she may be a Nazi spy. Turns out they didn’t hear a lot of conversation, but instead a lot of NSFW time. Tapes of those NSFW times are in the Library of Congress for those interested.
3 – Felix Faure, French President
French President Felix Fauré died getting a blowjob from his mistress.
4 – Christopher Colombus
In the latest years, Columbus ran a sex slave business from the New World. He remarked in a letter to a friend that nine-year-old girls were a particularly hot item with the nobility of Europe. As Colombus wrote in 1500:
“A hundred castellanos are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and it is very general and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten are now in demand”
5 – Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin Franklin published an essay entitled “Fart Proudly” – a tongue-in-cheek treatise promoting the health benefits of farting, and how to make farts smell better – in 1781 while he was the US Ambassador in France.
Fact #2: Benjamin Franklin was also a MILF hunter and once wrote on the advantages of sex with older women.
6 – John Harvey Kellog (inventor of breakfast cereals)
John Harvey Kellogg–one of the Kellogg brothers who invented breakfast cereal, advocated for sewing silver wire through boys’ foreskin to prevent them from masturbating. Strange fellow
7 – Lyndon Johnson
Lyndon Johnson was obsessed with his Dick, which he even called “Jumbo”. (source: http://gawker.com/lbj-was-obsessed-with-his-dick-1694599317)
8 – Edgar Allan Poe
When Edgar Allan Poe was 27, he married his 13 year old cousin. He did it in order to save her and her mother from the poor house. Some guy Rufus Wilmot Griswold who really hated Poe managed to get access to Poe’s whole estate after his death and rewrote his history so he would be viewed as this alcoholic, druggie, pedophile
9 – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart wrote dirty songs, with lyrics like “Lick me in the ass”, “Kiss my ass” or “Shit in your bed and make it burst”.
10 – Napoleon Bonaparte
Napoleon would forbid Josephine to bathe for weeks at a time because he liked her extra nasty down…there.
