"This Misterie of Fucking"

I saw an article today about a sex manual from 1680. It's surprisingly frank and explicit, from what I would have imagined as a fairly repressed time.

The article is here, and the full digitized version in Google Books is here.

It's a fun and interesting read.

  1. Well all those Calvinists screwed things up. They didn't stick so well in Europe but the colonies by way of the Pilgrims were a great place to bring it mainstream. Which is why us Yanks are so tight-asses.

  2. I stumbled across this the other week! Absolutely priceless and rather frightening insight.
