I came across a book called "Company K" written as a memoir of WWI in a thrift store.
In the first chapter or two was a tale in which the author and an Army colleague, upon leaving the bathing facilities engaged in playful horseplay in the snow( entirely platonic, of course ). The troll thought to himself: "naaa, certainly not...get your mind out of the gutter, troll."
Perhaps I am missing an obvious irony here- so at the risk of sounding naive I ask: Could it be that these images are artifacts of a very innocent era and our modern salacious interpretation of these images ( and my story about young men wrestling in the snow after a shower ) are reflections of a sex obsessed culture?
Cultural Marxism depends heavily on the public exposition of sexuality in opposition to Western Civilization. In this case, take some early to mid century advertisement of partially clothed men, that were after all consumer advertisements, and present them archaeologically as a sign of repressed homosexuality as a critique of Western norms.
