Hahaha, please tell me you’re going to show it to her and demand she stop hogging the time machine.
I’ve written this as a response to the @BuzzFeed article: 9 Books That Will Change Your Sex Life, because the Victorians were awesome and knew a hell of a lot more about sex than we give them the c…
In case anyone is interested in some resources for learning more about Victorian sexuality, this article has some good recommendations. The Kraft-Erbing in particular is just full of delightful insanity, and My Secret Life is just a classic right up there with The Pearl.
I could talk about the hats.
I could talk about the religious fetishism.
I could talk about her bored expression or the hideous couch or the fact that backdrop makes even less goddamn sense than normal but every time I look at this picture the only thing I can think about is the sandals.

I lobe you, my dear FJL.
And speaking of garish prints in eye-searing combinations holy jesus, what the fuck was wrong with people?!
Anonymous asked: I would just like to say that I am incredibly happy this blog exists. I feel somehow that the world is brighter with every picture of someone having sex in a silly hat against dreadful curtains that you post. So... thanks!
So happy to be of service! And believe me, I chortle with glee every time I find yet another woman wearing a bonnet and riding a dick at the same time.
I have named her Mistress Bertha, in case anyone is interested.
