Violet Fenn – Sex and Sexuality in Victorian Britain | Review

47355700Sex and Sexuality in Victorian Britain is a phenomenal piece of non-fiction written by Violet Fenn. As a true history junkie, I was beyond excited when I got approved to read this book! I was a bit suspicious that I wouldn’t like it before I started reading. And I was wrong. I sincerely enjoyed this book. It was educational and well-researched, so that didn’t disappoint me. What I enjoyed most were the real-life examples and experiences of people from the Victorian age. I found it really interesting to read their letters and diary entries.

My favourite chapter is Lifting the Lid on Lust: Libido, Kinks, and Sex Toys. The sassiness of the author toward other authors was very entertaining. I really like how Violet Fenn broke some of the misconceptions people have about the Victorian age, especially those concerning women and their intimacy.

I would certainly recommend this book to anyone interested in history, human condition and sex.

 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
