Gone Medieval / Sex in the Middle Ages

Listen on

Episode notes

Despite being a key part of society and everyday life, medieval sexuality was probably left out of your history lessons at school. But how much do we really know about these very private aspects of life in the Middle Ages? Dr Cat Jarman is joined by historian Dr Eleanor Janega from the London School of Economics, who tells us all about medieval sex toys, religious rules, sex workers and more. Please be aware there are adult themes in this episode. Eleanor’s book, The Middle Ages: A Graphic History, is out now
