Sexuality and Its Impact on History: The British Stripped Bare. Preview and Giveaway!

Hey everybody! I am thrilled beyond belief to announce that our new history book, Sexuality and Its Impact on History: The British Stripped Bare is available to pre-order. Hurray! This is an amazing project with some truly remarkable authors involved and I am honored to be a part of it. My chapter is about the ritual and reality of love in the Middle Ages--big surprise! ;) I'm tackling sex outside of marriage, marriage, the church's views on marriage and ways to get out of it, contraception (yes, it existed and I'm giving you a recipe you should under no circumstances ever try at home!), sex magic, transgender folks, prostitution, concubines, and homosexual relationships (including a king, some knights, and a whole lotta nuns). That's a lot to fit into one chapter, but I love you, so I did it. If that's not enough to tempt you, take a look at the chapter breakdown below. We have Lady Godiva, Anglo Saxons, Tudors, Anne Boleyn, Mary Queen of Scots, and Victoria
