Not sure yet what I think. Still thinking about what I think. I do have some questions that are guiding this thought process including:

--who read this stuff? Men or women or both?
--was this style of pulp fiction designed to affect men in a way comparable to how popular romance was designed to affect women?
--if I read enough of these, would I find a formula?
--did men really think women walked around naked that much?
--did men really think that women fiddled with their breasts that much?
--how should I read the protagonist - a philandering "apeman"? Does the fact that he got his wife back in the end mean he won?
--why don't men spank as a rule anymore to keep us in line?

Published in the early 60s. Characters clearly shaking off the sexual repression of the 50s. Still, not the escapist triumph of today's HEA. Everyone pretty soul-less, glum.
