Happy Repeal Day: How Prohibition Created Modern Dating

Today is the 79th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition and, as it turns out, we have that super not fun period in American history to thank for modern day dating. Or so, I read in USNews.

Before Prohibition, bars were reserved for men and...well...women of ill repute. When alcohol was no longer allowed in public, men and women would have to seek out secret sources. This a created a completely new way for men and women to meet each other and resulted in mixed gender mingling over spirits.

And, let's just be honest, we all know where mixed gender drinking leads.

When Prohibition was repealed, there just wasn't any stopping us.

Day 1: Prohibition was repealed. Day 2: The first sextelegram?
