From the Komsomol Archive

I’m sitting here reading over an anonymous survey conducted by the Komsomol Central Committee of delegates to the 8th Congress in 1928. The survey covers drinking, sex, and mood of mostly regional secretaries. I found the following hilarious and had to share:

“I first had sex at age 17 with a scabby (parshiven’skaia) prostitute,” writes an ukom secretary, a worker. “Then my cock didn’t make any demands because of a strong enthusiasm for work during the reconstruction period. Then after that, there was a lot of free time and it gorged (ob”elsia) itself well—I screwed seven women.”

I love my job.
