Where all the discharge and hair clumped together and caused a kind of ball of disgustingness in their vulva? envy I know this is incredibly random but I remember reading about it on here (I believe it was a myth!) and tried to tell someone about it but can't remember the name!

I will never learn.
Poor chimp.

Is anyone going to volunteer to see if this fact can be proven?

PerkingFaintly Mon 09-Dec-19 17:38:40

You first, GoFiguire...

ChessieFL Mon 09-Dec-19 17:40:00

I want to know what happened to the chimp!

That’s utterly manky, the smell from people in centuries gone by must have been utterly vile. Did people not notice because everyone smelled so bad?

ShannonShouts Mon 09-Dec-19 17:42:44

Well that’s put me right off my stew

It's a fun book , but lacking in references to back up its claims.

Mrsjayy Mon 09-Dec-19 17:45:42

I just googled it and now i am going to bleach my google (not a euphanism)

TitsInAbsentia Mon 09-Dec-19 18:22:56

I'm away to hurl....

GoFiguire Mon 09-Dec-19 18:23:12

I will volunteer but someone has to start a thread for my updates.

Bunbunbunny Mon 09-Dec-19 18:28:09

That's really sad what women had to put up with then. The thought of not being able to clean your bits blush

Dowser Mon 09-Dec-19 19:00:06

Good lord..that’s appalling

PeterRouseTheFleshofMankind Mon 09-Dec-19 19:02:29

I thought the whole sootykins thing was just a (misogynistic) myth?

EveryFlightBeginsWithAFall Mon 09-Dec-19 19:06:23

I'm not reading that! I've learnt after the whole blue waffle thing

WeshMaGueule Mon 09-Dec-19 19:08:01

No relevant Google Books hits for the 19th c so I'm calling bullshit.

FergusSingsTheBlues Mon 09-Dec-19 19:08:16

It's a misogynistic myth folks hmm
