Editorial Reviews

Review

Anyone who has negotiated the thrills of the chase for romance will smile with recognition and sigh in sympathy while reading this entertaining and well-researched history.―The Lady

Hodgson covers a lot of ground in 234 pages - this is a pacey, intelligent and authoritative account with bags of wit.―
LawGazette.co.uk

Nichi Hodgson takes you on a whistle-stop tour of dating through history―
historyextra.com

A new approach to romance . . . The heroines of Regency novels could teach today's young women a trick or two.―
Sunday Times

Nichi's writing is articulate, entertaining, informative and eye-opening.―
J. V. Wilson

A fascinating look at our attitudes to sex and relationships from the 1700s to the present day. Thoroughly recommended.―

About the Author

Nichi Hodgson is a 32-old-year journalist, broadcaster, and author living in London. She regularly contributes to the Guardian, Vice, and the Telegraph on civil liberties and censorship issues, sex and the law, and gender politics. She has spoken on Woman's Hour about lust and her documentary on porn ethics was broadcast on Radio 4. She writes for US women's mag Bustle.com on US politics, social policy, and health, and was for some time the Men's Health Sexual Adventurer columnist. Nichi was one of the first British journalists to court-report via Twitter, and is cited in Wikipedia for her coverage of the 2012 obscenity trial, R v Peacock. Nichi is a regular commentator on BBC Radio 2's The Jeremy Vine Show, and on BBC Radio 5 Live. She reviews the papers and comments regularly for Sky News, and makes frequent appearances in TV documentaries and debates on sex, porn and society. Her first book, Bound To You, detailing her time as a professional dominatrix and personal submissive, was published by Hodder. Nichi is also the Director of the Ethical Porn Partnership.
