I’m often saddened when I think of the sheer amount of sexual history documents and material that are lost to censoriousness, keeping the privacy of people long dead, or simple neglect. Just think how close the Munby/Cullwick journals came to being destroyed and lost forever.

Here’s a plea from Gloria Brame about keeping sexual history alive:

So next time you look at a naughty vintage photo here, remember that in addition to being hot, it is also a physical record of human sexuality as it is and always has been lived. And that is a truth worth preserving.

If you come across something like this, even if you don’t want it, there are collectors and institutions like the Leather Archives and Museum that do.
