Although undated, Bedroom Party Literature book has been dated from 1947 to 1950 in the few sources in which it appears. One of those books for which the terms "bawdy" is appropriate, the 70 page digest was privately printed and has no copyright. It consists of literally hundreds of jokes, poems and the like which proves there is no "new" dirty joke. We have been here a long time, and anything funny which can be imagined about "the deed" has been figured out and shared long ago...this book provides plenty of proof and does it with far more class then you'll hear on the street today.
Most "useful" I suppose, although I personally never needed much help, especially from a book, thank you very much, is the essay which follows a few blank pages as if they wondered if they dared put it in. Pun intended. Starting on page 61, with a serious tone your primary care physician might use if he or she was comfortable doing so, is the essay "How to Love or the Art of Intercourse" which is no joke at all. Remarkably honest for the times, the article attributed to Douglas MacDougall, M.D. claims if more people read this essay, many divorces would be prevented. He (or she...who knows if even a doctor could use a real name to discuss this stuff back then) is probably right, and it is a shame this book is so scarce today... there is only one copy to be found on the web. I have found sources for this essay portion as early as 1929, another from 1937. No doubt it went from hand to hand in handwritten, folded-up form as well.
Search and you shall find. The entire text has been scanned by a considerate fellow named Jack Horntip. (Do he and I have the only copies?) Well, Horntip may have destroyed the value of a rare book, but you'll read some great jokes and might save your marriage too! File under "erotic miscellany" "prose and verse - risque" and "marriage manuals - explicit and ahead of its time" or the like.
I haven't read it all, so don't find something arcane or sexist and yell at me. For 1950, this is as accurate as you can get.
