I could wish it were simply them being masochists, Bookpossum. Sadly, I suspect it was a lot more about male attitudes of the era, especially as portrayed in pulp fiction. Which were all about manly men doing manly things in a manly way. (or some such equine fecal matter.)

As issybird said, this has not aged well. Where the movie version is, somehow, less annoying, even with many of the same complaints.
