    A curious collection of photographs from the 1930s has shown us just how different life was for the American family just 75 years ago – particularly for women.
    The images, published originally in LIFE Magazine in 1937 and again on LIFE.com this week, illustrate step-by-step how a wife should – and should not – undress for her husband.
    Using burlesque dancers as models, Allen Gilbert, who was promoting his new Manhattan School of Undressing, gave readers a few pointers and lamented in the article that wives with a faulty ‘disrobing methodology’ were largely responsible for America’s ballooning divorce rate.

    Gilbert said in the February 17 issue that at his undressing school wives, anxious to improve their marital manners, would learn ‘the correct way’ to take off their clothes.
    ‘I am dedicating my school to the sanctity of the American home,’ he explained.
     
    At the time of print, 48 New York wives ‘who suspect there is something wrong with’ how they undress in front of the man of the house had already signed up for the $30 six lesson course.
    ‘From these they will learn how to make going to bed appear a thing of charm and pleasure rather than a routine chore,’ the article reads.

    Thankfully, even back then, LIFE’s editors weren’t entirely convinced, believing the course may be a stunt to promote the burlesque producer’s upcoming show.
    ‘Mr. Gilbert plans to put on a revue next spring entitled Sex Rears Its Ugly Head,’ the article reads.
    ‘It may be that this current lapse into pedagogy is partially motivated by the knowledge that advance publicity for the producer is not a bad thing.’ View the full gallery at LIFE.com.
