Based on the popular research project Whores of Yore, and written with her distinctive humour and wit, A Curious History of Sex draws upon Dr Kate Lister’s extensive knowledge of sex history.

From medieval impotence tests to twentieth-century testicle thefts, from the erotic frescoes of Pompeii, to the modern-day sex doll brothel, Kate unashamedly roots around in the pants of history, debunking myths, challenging stereotypes and generally getting her hands dirty. Join Kate for an alternative Valentines night in with a good book. You will laugh, you will wince and you will wonder just how much has actually changed.
