Diane Publishing Books
Sex in Georgian England
A.D. Harvey (au)
Using the evidence of medical texts, trial records, pamphlets, autobiographies, novels, poems, plays, dress fashions, pornographic engravings & paintings by members of the Royal Academy, the respected academic & writer A.D. Harvey shows how the 18th century constructed the stereotype of female purity & passivity which was to be inherited by the Victorians. Men, too, were the subject of changing sexual attitudes as the author shows in his discussion of masturbation, homosexuality & impotence. This enlightening & controversial account of sex in the age of Fanny Hill will be of as much interest to the sociologist & sex-counselor as to the historian & general reader. Black & white illustrations.
