HI, I would like to know more about sex in Tudor times, I have read that women were to lie still and were not supposed to have pleasure. I have also read that men were encourged to bring their wives to orgasm because it was thought that it was important because it made conception an easier task. Also no sex during preganancy? Were the men expected to take a mistress because making love with their wives was only to concieve a child? I really enjoy this site!

    All this religion involved with sex is so….foreign to me. Like to them God made women to do nothing but bare children. No freedom. No rights. No pleasure. In that sense why create us at all? So depressing.

      I suspect God had he same issue who was going to cook and clean, so he made women.

    I’ve often wondered if all the restrictions on days were to in a strange way limit pregnancies overall?
