Produktbeschreibung
"Dull this book is not, and it gives an insight into the many scandals not spoken about in polite Victorian drawing rooms." -Glasgow & West of Scotland Family History Society Peek beneath the bedsheets of nineteenth-century Britain in this affectionate, informative and fascinating look at sex and sexuality during the reign of Queen Victoria. It examines the prevailing attitudes towards male and female sexual behavior, and the ways in which these attitudes were often determined by those in positions of power and authority. It also explores our ancestors' ingenious, surprising, bizarre and often entertaining solutions to the challenges associated with maintaining a healthy sex life. Did the people in Victorian times live up to their stereotypes when it came to sexual behavior? This book will answer this question, as well as looking at fashion, food, science, art, medicine, magic, literature, love, politics, faith and superstition through a new lens, leaving the reader uplifted and with a new regard for the ingenuity and character of our great-great-grandparents. "I would say this book gives you the information on relationships, genders and very much behavior that doesn't usually come across in history books. Therefore this is an excellent book indeed, certainly one that more people should be aware of and learn from." -UK Historian "The writing is joyous and it is clear the author enjoys her subject and is fairly knowledgeable on things Victorian." -Rosie Writes "Fenn's writing is so readable and it's clear this is a book written by a historian who loves her subject and is very knowledgeable about the research being carried out by other historians." -Jessticulates

Autorenporträt
VIOLET FENN has always been fascinated by human behaviour. She specialises in frank and straightforward investigations into the wilder areas of sexual practices and the changing cultural attitudes towards sex and mortality. She was once turned down for a job at an undertaker's for being 'too interested in death'. She lives in Shropshire with her children, a menagerie of pets and endless beautiful but pointless clutter. She firmly believes that black is the happiest colour and that there is no such thing as too much red lipstick. To find out more, visit sexdeathrocknroll.com
