Mighty Lewd Books describes the emergence of a new home-grown English pornography as seen in flagellation novellas which burst to the fore in the 1770s. Through an examination of British erotica, Peakman looks at sex as seen in eighteenth-century erotic culture, religion and medicine, in this radical approach to the study of sexuality.
