Description - Mighty Lewd Books by Julie Peakman

The 1770s saw the emergence of a new home grown English pornography as seen in flagellation novellas which came bursting to the fore. Prior to this, English erotica had included a particular style of bawdy material marked by its euphemisms and double entendres. Through the examination of over 500 pieces of British erotica, this book looks at sex as seen in erotic culture, religion and medicine throughout the 18th century, and provides a radical approach to the study of sexuality.
