Mon, 25 October 7:00pm

In this powerful, inclusive and entertaining new cultural history of sex,  Fern Riddell takes us on an illuminating journey to uncover the sexual lives of our ancestors.  From flirtation to orgasm and everything in between, she shows they were just as preoccupied with sex as we are, facing it with the same confusion, joy and accidental hilarity that we do today.  Dr Fern Riddell is an historian specialising in sex, suffrage and culture in the Victorian and Edwardian years.


“Part history, part manifesto, Sex: Lessons from History will challenge and enrich your sense of erotic history.  Fern Riddell is the perfect guide – informed, rigorous, radical, passionate – using the sexual past to map the way to the future.”  Matthew Sweet
