The 70’s were iconic in so many ways. Disco, Star Wars, cults, Farrah Fawcett (and her hair), roller skates, weird decor colors, 8-tracks, mood rings, and a plethora of serial killers. Also… cringey books. And I suspect, considering the 70s, they were unintentionally so. Here are six of the cringiest…
This gem was written as a “how to” for men. This little bit from the back cover should set the scene… “…how to manipulate her into being a willing, eager, sensuous sex partner…”
This seems legit. A step-by-step guide to, among other things, increasing the size of your boobs. The best part of this book is the reviews.
The cringe is all the way through this one. The most obivous? That unfortunate title. According to the blurb, the book is supposed to teach a dad how to love their kids meaningfully. Ooookay.
I couldn’t find a blurb, but it’s the 70s, so I think it’s safe to assume it’s cringey.
Even the blurb is cringey… “You’re fifteen and flustered? Sixteen and swinging? Seventeen and sexy?” Even a young Cheryl Tiegs on the cover isn’t enough to help this.
