From our pal Bryan Sentes: Gynecological Gymnastics from Outer Space (1895)

Our academic friend, Bryan Sentes, who teaches at Dawson College in Montreal, sent us this interesting medical item from 1895:
Gynecological Gymnastics from Outer Space (1895). A set of uncanny images from a 19th-century gynecological text-book, eye-catching today less for the gynecologal technique they depict but more the bizarre similarity between the rakishly thin figures employed in demonstrating the exercises and the figure of the so-called “Grey Alien” – thin body, huge head, large eyes – which wouldn’t hit popular consciousness for another 65 years.
