Newstead, England. #1 Bestseller Medieval Author,
wanted to know what medieval women got up to in the
bedroom? Or got up to in order to avoid any sort of
bedroom activities? Interested in what sort of questionable
medical or nutritional advice was being dispensed to
the lady plagued by various love life related troubles
and ailments? All your questions (and then some) shall
be answered in this surprisingly informative and highly
entertaining read packed with anecdotes, fuin facts
and gossipy goodness on a subject rarely covered in
history books - I learned a lot and laughed a lot."

Very Secret Sex Lives of Medieval Women" is a fantastic
jaunt into the past. It not only highlights the trials
and tribulations of women of the medieval period, but
helps show that the men didn't always get their way.
The author, Rosalie Gilbert, has developed a very well
researched and comprehensive look into many aspects
of medieval women and presented this knowledge in a
fun and easy to read format.
Male or Female, it's definitely worth getting your hands
on if you have an interest in history, women, the church,
men or what goes on "between the sheets."

most entertaining, informative and enjoyable read I
have had in a very long time. The Very Secret Sex Lives
of Medieval Women can truly be classed a most excellent
reference book for the feminine medieval re-enactor.
This delightful book has made me highly aware that the
era Rosalie has thoroughly researched is a "Nice
place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there."
This book well deserves its place on the high shelf
of my medieval reference bookcase. Kudos Rosalie on
a book well created."

and horrifying all at once! If it werent for the
references to actual historical documentation, theres
some stuff that I wouldnt believe! All I can say
is that Im fortunate to be a woman in todays
world, the glass ceiling aint got nothing on what
medieval woman experienced. That said, the author playfully
discusses these things with a wicked sense of humour.

and clear research, interspersed with humor. Ms. Gilbert
refutes many misconceptions about Medieval life for
women, in an interesting manner, as well as laying out
lots of information about what options, concerns, legal
standing and protections women had regarding their own
Definitely an interesting read for most women, whether
they have an interest in the time period or not."

arrived today! I just had a bit of a skim, reading sections
at random, and have been cackling like a maniac and
reading bits out loud to my partner and housemate. This
book is brilliant, and you are an excellent and very
humorous writer. Thank you!"
