Submitter: I work in a small academic library, and I weeded [this] on my first pass through our medical collection. Self-described as “a book of experiments in being alive,” the book invites readers to get in touch with their senses by tapping, and then slapping their bodies all over… and that’s just for starters. I know the 60’s happened, but still, this is one of the most bizarre library books I’ve ever encountered. I didn’t include any scans of the many photos of topless women or naked couples performing these sense experiments… maybe that’s how this book stayed in the collection until the 2010s?
Holly: What the… I’m speechless. I particularly do not understand the second picture below. Look in the top, left corner of the picture. (Sorry about that…)
