On the 25th of September, Dr Sarah Jones gave a paper to Exeter’s History Society, titled ‘”Your Sex Organs are ALIVE!” The Science of Sexual Pleasure in the early Twentieth Century’.

 

The paper looked at a range of ‘scientific’ advice texts published in Britain and America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and explored such topics as the relationship between sex and love, the importance of good foreplay technique, and the science of orgasm.
