So, according to the Internets, it’s National Bathtub Party Day! I don’t know about you, but I’ll be celebrating with bubble bath from Lush, a drink, music, and a soggy magazine.

Let’s revisit another bathtub party! Does anyone remember the Bath Night Frolic?

“I refer to the custom adopted by the wise mothers of all generations of having the little children fo the family meet in the nursery at bedtime at least one evening a week in what some mothers call an “undress parade.” Others mothers call it a “bath night frolic.” The little boys and girls of the family ranging in age between two and seven or eight, enter into these frolic with the keenest and most unalloyed pleasure.”

Love in the Tub

“Even your own bathtub is loaded with erotic potential. The bathtub in particular is one of the most imaginative and yet convenient love sites you can find. Somehow the privacy we ascribe to our bathrooms becomes charmingly wicked when invaded by two lusty lovers. The beautiful symmetry of a woman’s body has always been, to me, the most exciting vision God ever created. With her hair tucked up in a turbanlike towel and her body wet and shining with bubbles and water, she assumes the look of a nymph whose only purpose in life is to please you (if she’s in shape, anyway).”

Commence Frolicking!

“The next question which the child asks, as a rule, concerns the physical differences between the sexes. Your little six or seven-year-old girl may come with the question as to how the mother knows whether her new-born baby is a boy or a girl. … The wise mothers in all generations have adopted a very simple method of forestalling this question, and presenting in the family, conditions which answer the question in the most natural and simple way.

“Bath night frolic” at my house means something completely different. And it involves less children and more bourbon.
