Say What? 1960s Ad Agencies Really Were All Sex and Booze


"We used to have an agency 'sex' contest near the end of every year. . . . We'd go to a no-name Mexican restaurant . . . and we'd drink giant margaritas all day. . . . We'd take a blind vote to name the person at the agency you'd most want to go to bed with. We also took a vote on the person of the same sex you'd like to go to bed with. We did this for 15 years. I'd get to announce the winners each year. The first prize was a weekend at The Plaza hotel for the winning couple."

— Veteran Madison Avenue advertising executive Jerry Della Femina, 73, shared his experience working as a mad man in the 1960s. He said the characters on Mad Men would look innocent if you compared their actions to what really went down.

Do you think you could have worked in an environment like that?
