    The satirical Ragionamenti ('Discussions') by Pietro Aretino (1492-1556) are neo-Platonic dialogues set in a brothel, where a seasoned prostitute and a novice examine the career options for women - as nuns, wives or whores. This second dialogue discusses the scandalous and often hilarious goings-on within marriage. Translated, with an introduction, by Andrew Brown.
