Quickly, before it gets taken down (or you hear about this insta-viral phenomenon from someone other than me), here's The Recently Deflowered Girl, an advice booklet from 1965, illustrated by Edward Gorey and written by one Hyancinthe Phyppe, who is an obvious pseudonym — for either Gorey or one Mel Juffe (possibly a pseudonym for Gorey or someone else).

Nice, internet.
