Description
 
In this sensational book, first published in 1958, Partridge tells the story of the orgy. An orgy, the dictionary tells us, is ďa wild gathering, marked by promiscuous sexual activity, excessive drinking, etc.Ē Partridge tells us precisely what that has meant in the various human societies that have left records. We start with the Greeks, who celebrated sexuality at Dionysiac festivals, & the Romans, who imported unwholesome brutalities into their orgiastic celebrations. We then learn of the taste for group sex displayed by some medieval popes, the junketings of restoration England, the aristocratic hedonists of the Hellfire club, Scotlandís notorious Wig Club, the orgiastic tastes of Casanova & the Marquis de Sade, up to the 20th century. B&W illustrations.
