1937 – How wives should undress before their husbands, by a burlesque stripper

IT’S 1937, and Life Magazine is running a feature on how housewives undress in front of their husbands. No husbands are featured.

The story informs readers:

“Ex-Burlesque stripper, Professor June St. Clair, sexily undressing as a typical wife clumsily disrobes next to her during a demonstration on how wives should undress in front of their husbands’ in the bedroom, for a class at the Allen Gilbert School of Undressing.”
