Men together playing parlor games, gardening, reading, making cocktails:
Kinsey blended whiskey 1946 ad. Doodles and cocktails by the beach.
The coded doodles theme in this ad seems a pointed double entendre about using a symbol to convey a hidden meaning - an analogy for the whole business of communicating homosexuality in coded cues.
Kinsey blended whiskey ad 1948 (detail). Making cocktails from the Kinsey recipe book.
One of the men wears an apron, holds the book, and eagerly awaits the conclusion of the other on how good the drink is. A butch / femme dynamic?
Kinsey blended whiskey 1945 ad. Victory garden theme.
