Throughout history the wielders of power, whether church or state, have tried to control the sexual behaviour of their subjects. Europe's cyclical attitude to things sexual can be seen through the Renaissance's implicit tolerance, the Reformation's repression and the Enlightenment's liberalisation. William Naphy's scholarly and compelling book explores this phenomenon by delving into the whole gamut of sexual activity in relation to criminal charges, and reflecting on the differences and similarities to our attitudes of today.
