When Passion Reigned

Drawing upon sources from the Victorian era, this work debunks the myth that the Victorians did not like sex. Avoiding the "great literature" of the day, and instead relying on the songs, advertisements and pulp fiction serialized in magazines for adults, it provides an eye-opening look at what the masses thought, and how they acted when it came to sex and love. It shows that eroticism was rife - it was at the heart of fashion and underclothing, the driving force in courtship rituals and even the central attraction of the ever-present parlour piano.
