Description - Sex In Georgian England by A. D. Harvey

Using the evidence of medical texts, trial records, government statistics, pamphlets, autobiographies, novels, poems, plays, dress fashions, pornographic engravings and paintings by members of the Royal Academy, this book shows how the eighteenth century constructed the stereotype of female purity and passivity which was to be inherited by the Victorians.
