The "world's first" sweaty balls spray (1971 ad).

Via a 1971 Playboy.
Meanwhile, women of the era were presented with a hygiene spray ad that promised their coochies would smell like a "whisper of mint".

I actually like that copy quite a bit. But, then, this product...ah...*addresses some areas of need* for me, so.

If I eat garlic, I can be in a room full of garlic eaters, and not be bothered by the smell. Conversely, someone who hadn’t eaten garlic wouldn’t be producing their own garlic smell, and would therefore be keenly aware of the garlic aroma hanging in the air.

By extension, after a month of daily Braggi use masking their own aroma, would one become hyper-sensitive to the odour of the sweaty balls of others? As if a ride on the subway isn’t enough of an adventure.

Cartoon by B. Kliban:

The scene is a department store cosmetics counter. The sales clerk is a fay homo stereotype. The customer is a woman showing interest in a product.

Caption: "Hands off, bitch, that's a man's hairspray."

"If you don't think you need it, you're kidding yourself". GENIUS!!

Selling social anxiety as blatantly as I never thought possible.
