Would you swig a magic potion or plot to kill your husband in order to marry your lover? These are just two of the many romantic and sexual customs from British history that you will explore as seven authors take us through the centuries, revealing that truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to love. From bizarre trivia about courtly love, to techniques and prostitution, you'll encounter memorable nuggets of provocative information that you'll want to share.
It's all here: mnage a trois, chastity belts, Tudor fallacies, royal love and infidelity, marriage contracts (which were more like business arrangements), brothels, kept women, and whorehouses. Take a peek at what really happened between the sheets. Each story provides you with shocking detail about what was at the heart of romance throughout British history.
_Sexuality and Its Impact on History: The British Stripped Bare_ chronicles the pleasures and perils of the flesh, sharing secrets from the days of the Anglo-Saxons, medieval courtly love traditions, diabolical Tudor escapades-including those of Anne Boleyn and Mary Queen of Scots-the Regency, and down to the 'prudish' Victorian Era. This scholarly yet accessible study brings to light the myriad varieties of British sexual mores.
