This text featurette from Girls' Love Stories #172 (August 1972) is an enlightening read on the attitudes of dating and romance in the early 1970s. I found point #8 ("Do you have the same attitudes toward sex and romance?") most interesting, as it is one of the few explicit discussions of sex in the romance comics that I have found so far. This inclusion leads me to continue to believe that the editors knew not only were very little girls reading these comics, but older women as well.
