About the book

If medieval women lived today, they'd still be thinking about sex the way we do.

Margaret would be updating her status to "in a relationship with God" while her disappointed husband changed his from "just married" to "it's complicated." Margery would be picking up the ingrediants for a sexy night in and doing some special baking. Perhaps Rose might be stopping off at a sex shop for some quality alone time supplies. Alice would still not be walking home in the dark for fear of being molested and Anne might be facing her abusive husband in court. The church would still be on its soapbox loudly telling women what they could and couldn't do with their own bodies.

The intimate lives of medieval women were as complex as ours today with very little being clear cut. Having sex was complicated. Not having sex, was even more so.

Hundreds of years separate the very secret sex lives of medieval women and the sex lives of modern women. Only the actual women have changed.

Fans of the Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval England, Medieval Women and Terry Jonses's Medieval Lives will meet real women and hear their voices in The Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women.
