This provocative book is one you can't put down. Beginning with Emma Haddon-Wright's essay on Lady Godiva, which adds a refreshing feminist vibe to an old story, you'll be gripped by the very human true stories of sexuality and the cultural impact of each era. Following Ms Haddon-Wright essay, Annie Whitehead expertly shares the true story of an Anglo-Saxon menage that cost a King his crown. Jessica Cale gives insight into Courtly Love, Medieval thoughts on LGBTQ, and how their thinking was more progressive than I ever imagined.
Maryanne Coleman explains how complicated Tudor marriages were, and Judith Arnopp does not disappoint when she examines the probability of a tryst between Anne Boleyn and Sir Thomas Wyatt. Gayle Hulme makes us see Mary, Queen of Scots as a very real, complicated woman.
Dr Beth Lynne unravels the mystery of the monarchy and succession of the British Crown. Hunter S. Jones ends the work with a compelling essay on the global impact of Victorian prostitution. She helps us understand the women and men who had careers in the world's oldest profession. Her essay and the Godiva story bind seamlessly into bringing the stories full-circle.
I felt that the work is well written and researched. Each essay could be it's own book, but this format gives us a better perspective of how British sexuality shaped women and gender roles into the 20th century. The biggest surprise was the story of Nashville in the Civil War. Well done, ladies.
I absolutely love this book! Each chapter gives you more insight into the past and how different eras viewed sexual practices and sexuality. Having been written by all female authors was an invaluable insight to me, Sexuality and Its Impact on History reads easily, educating and informing in such a charming way it was a pleasure to read. I especially like how Hunter S. Jones ends the book by bringing the reader into the 20th century. Her essay is the longest but gave me insight into how women handled the strict moral code of the Victorian Era, and how that affected the US during the Civil War and beyond. Well done ladies!
Each author presents a segment of history and women whose stories are worth knowing. Along the way, you pick up some fascinating bits about marriage traditions and laws, prostitution and the reasons for it and the life of women in those eras.
Heaven help you if you were a royal. The story of Mary, Queen of Scots was very compelling and well done. My heart went out to her, a queen at six days of age tor between those who wanted to take advantage of her claim to England’s throne. That her fellow Scots should betray her and her cousin, Elizabeth, murder her was a horrible end for so promising a life.
As an author of historical romance who does extensive research for my stories, I found the book of keen interest. Others who just love reading about history will find it of interest, too. A great addition to the knowledge of women’s lives in history!
Author Haddon’s accounts of Lady Godiva were an eye-opener along with other ladies playing high roles in the royal courts. I enjoyed this collection and will often go back for future reference. These women portrayed were not just sex objects but women of power in their own right.
As a writer of erotica, I found valuable information here on the roles in sexuality during those time periods.
