MANY of us see our older relatives and ancestors as a conservative bunch – but sometimes, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

When one woman was rooting through some old documents, she made a very intimate discovery.

This viral meme sparked a VERY personal confession on Tumblr

The blogger, who shared the story on tumblr, shared the tale in response to a viral meme.

In the popular post, women of today are compared to those of the past.

The insinuation is that we’re a lot less classy nowadays, which the tumblr user thinks is anything but the truth.

To prove that the post is nonsense, she began: “See, I’ve seen like 600 variations of this meme and I gotta tell you a story.”

The tumblr user continued: “It’s the first year my sister and I are both home from college, and we’re feeling kind of nostalgic, so we take out the old family photo albums to remember everyone from times past…

“‘The f***?’ says my sister, because she’s been in to Great-Aunt Liz’s Rumballs, and I open the envelope.

“Inside are four tickets to the Titanic, unused, and Mom tells us the story of how her ancestors ALMOST came over on the Titanic, but Great-Aunt Liz got the measles and forced everyone into quarantine, thus saving their lives.”

But as amazing as this story was, it was nothing compared to what happened next.

When rifling through another envelope, the blogger made a VERY racy discovery.

She admitted: “The OTHER thing in the envelope are seven Photographs, dated 1890. They are of my Great-Great Grandmother.

“They are nudes. They are NOT tasteful nudes.

“Like, these are Violating-Terms-Of-Service-On-Most-Platforms- OBSCENE.

“Great-great-grandmother had these taken waaaaay back in ye olden days, in order to convince her wayward husband to move back to England after he ditched her to party it up in Chicago.”

Thankfully, the Tumblr user was able to see the funny side of the mortifying moment.

She said: “I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW F*****G HARD WE LAUGHED.

“Like, I think I passed out I was laughing so hard.

“So yes, people have ALWAYS been like this, and your nudes will make for a hilarious family Christmas someday.”

Many people are left feeling embarrassed when they have to discuss x-rated topics with their families.

These grandparents were furious when they bought their eight-year-old a bath set that contained a lewd message.

Earlier this month, daughter cringed when she discovered that there was a very cheeky pattern on her mum’s new cushions.

And another mum left everyone in hysterics when she bought her daughter this seemingly rude gift.
