Who says people in the Soviet Union didn’t know how to have fun? To look at this dirty alphabet book, they did nothing but suck and fuck in various configurations for the better part of the 20th century. Created in 1931 by popular Soviet state artist Sergei Dmitrievich Merkurov (who also sculpted numerous monuments to Joseph Stalin), this erotic ABC primer was meant to increase literacy rates in the adult population the only way Merkurov knew how: with a good old, fashioned, multi-person orgy.
Unlike all those boring children’s alphabets made of plants and animals, this alphabet is made out of fit young specimens of Soviet manhood putting communist babies in ladies’ tummies and sometimes their mouths, too. And as you can see, they’re not afraid to go down on women (modern!), or bring the occasional mythical creature into the mix (super modern!). Basically, there’s a lot we can learn from the Soviet Union, and you know I’m not talking about how to create a communist utopia. Enjoy. More
