Talk of the Teen: All Sex Issue

Here's another Talk of Teen filler feature where DC shows how relatable they are to all the cool cats who read comic books. Bobby-soxers in 1960?

From Lois Lane #21 (Nov 1960)

Out of all the phrases supposedly in use since this feature was published in 1960 only the first is still part of the lexicon and is directly related to not getting sex. Boot Me can mean something completely different in the computer age and Broom sounds like modern street slang for a shotgun. Sugar Report sounds vaguely familiar as if I heard it used somewhere once and is probably related to corporate business. If used today, She's Wearing Heels seems to imply the opposite of the inaccessible female and instead suggests a woman of lose morals.
