Women Admiring Nylon Stockings in 1940s (& LGBTQ History) | Sex History | Scoop.it

Fun fact: Though being gay in the 40s sucked, being gay in the military was easier, and pretty common. There were apparently, at one point in time time so many lesbians in the military that when they tried to crack down on it, the girls wrote back and said “Look I can give you the names, but you’ll lose some of your best officers, and half your nurses and secretaries.” And they pret...

Retail therapy: How Ernest Dichter, an acolyte of Sigmund Freud, revolutionised marketing

Retail therapy: How Ernest Dichter, an acolyte of Sigmund Freud, revolutionised marketing | Sex History | Scoop.it
“You would be amazed to find how often we mislead ourselves, regardless of how smart we think we are, when we attempt to explain why we are behaving the way we do,” Dichter observed in 1960, in his book “The Strategy of Desire”. He held that marketplace decisions are driven by emotions and subconscious whims and fears, and often have little to do with the product itself. Trained as a psychoanalyst, Dichter saw human motivation as an “iceberg”, with two-thirds hidden from view, even to the decision-maker. “What people actually spend their money on in most instances are psychological differences, illusory brand images,” he explained.

At a time when national companies were aggressively jockeying for position among Americans—a suddenly cash-happy and acquisitive bunch—Dichter promised a way to influence consumers' brains. If shopping was an emotional minefield, then strategic marketing could be a gold mine for companies.

Between the late 1930s and 1960s Dichter became famous for transforming the fates of businesses such as Procter & Gamble, Exxon, Chrysler, General Mills and DuPont. His insight changed the way hundreds of products were sold, from cars to cake mix. He pioneered research techniques such as the focus group, understood the power of word-of-mouth persuasion and earned startling fees for his theories. By the late 1950s his global business reached an annual turnover of $1m ($8m today), and he enjoyed a reputation as the Freud of the supermarket age.

Vintage King's Crown Rainbow VIP Keychain Keyring Pat Pending Vegas Casino Maybe?

Vintage King's Crown Rainbow VIP Keychain Keyring Pat Pending Vegas Casino Maybe? | Sex History | Scoop.it

A handsome and impressive vintage keychain. Goldtone, with etching encircling a medallion center featuring a golden crown with red accents on a black background. On the crown, it reads, "King's Crown, Rainbow, V.I.P."

The back of the fob is textured.

On the keyring itself, on the front, is the word "squeeze" -- a direction on how to use it. On the back, it reads, "HIT USA, Pat. Pending."

Measures approximately 2 3/4 inches long.

Not sure if this is from the old King's Crown hotel and casino in Las Vegas? (What the original Aladdin was for six months between 1964-1965). It has that look, but we can't say for sure.
