Julie Peakman returns to The Century to explore the sex lives of women from 1680 to 1830 – the period known as the long eighteenth century – and to launch her latest book on the subject.



She will uncover the various experiences of women, whether mistresses, adulteresses or those involved in the sex trade, from renowned courtesans to downtrodden streetwalkers and investigate the multifaceted lives of these women within brothels, on stage and even behind bars.



Based on new research into court transcripts, asylum records, magazines, pamphlets, satires, songs, theatre plays and erotica, we will learn of the gruesome treatment of women who were sexually active outside of marriage. Julie looks at sex from women’s points of view, undercutting the traditional image of the bawdy eighteenth century to expose a more sordid side, of women left distressed, ostracized and vilified for their sexual behaviour.

    Great event as always, wasn't keen on the interviewer but Cathi's content was excellent and provided insight into a fascinating period.
