Nurses


Going out with nurses was a sure thing, money in the bank?

So in 1956, nurses had a reputation for being fast?

reply

Yeah, I thought that too, now a days nurses are a very well respected profession, but the way his friend was describing the nurses I was wondering if that was code for hooker..lol even for 1950s standards that was risky.

reply

I don't think it was code for hooker as much as it seemed to mean they had a reputation for being 'easy'.

Always the officiant, never the bride.

Back in the day nurses, hairdressers and waitresses had a rep for bein fast fillies.

Ahh, ok. It's funny because today I was watching Night Nurse on TCM and Barbara Stanwyck's character made a reference to nurses having an easy reputation. A young man asked her to go on a buggy ride and she declined saying something like nurses' reputations were already bad enough. So there must have been something about those ladies in white.

reply

Most of the nurses I've met have been horrible people in every way.

I've never heard of real-life nurses having a reputation for looseness. (And I'm no youngster.)

I suspect the appealing thing about nurses is that they are educated about, and comfortable in dealing with, human bodily functions -- of which sex, of course, is one. So, nurses, in theory, are familiar with men's bodies and less uptight about getting giggity.


Martha Washington was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.

Men looking for sex liked nurses because they had access to contraceptives. Until the Supreme Court's ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut, states had the right to ban sales of contraceptives to married persons, never mind unmarrieds. And Griswold wasn't decided until 1965, long after the period in which Marty was set.

Marty and his pals were trolling for women similar in age to them. An Adult women nurse who A. Earned money, B. Was comfortable with the human body C. Was not looking for Mr. Right ( just Mr. Right now) were choosing to express their sexual needs too.

So in this scenario, Nurses were" money in the bank"
