I have finished the Victorian porn. It was... well, it was a fascinating read. It was enlightening, and hilarious, and sometimes pretty goddamn hot. So, all in all, worth buying. I regret nothing. I fear no shame.

Fun fact: because of the way I sort my books, it ends up on the same shelf as Doyle.

The last part of the book is dedicated to porny letters to the editor, and a column called "Dear Doctor Jonathan," a sexual advice column spliced with a side of Dear Penthouse. Basically, a small porny story followed by questions about people's sexual worries. Which Dr Jonathan then answers.

Apparently, the Oyster maintained during its run that all letters printed in its magazine were from genuine readers.

The best things. But oh, it's filthy. Some good advice, and the most inexplicable thing I've ever seen in erotica. )

So, still working my way through the Victorian porn. It's still a pretty amazing read. Today, however, I share, because I am here to back up Jack Harkness's claim of being in Victorian porn.

Because I appear to have found him. Nothing under this cut is really explicit, promise, but it's not very worksafe, either. )

An interesting discussion on birth control from a very old bit of writing I've recently come across.


Work safe, really, which is surprising considering the source. )



What is this from?

This is from an early chapter of a novel-length piece of erotica published anonymously around 1880 (edit: I checked! 1884).

It's full of this stuff. When people are not having sex they are providing sexual education, or debating politics, or wondering about societal ills, and it's porn. This is the most super-liberal, ultra-modern, intellectual porn ever. It's amazing.
