Is the Kilt making a full blooded come back?
The Kilt has been the target of many a joke and ribald comment for more years than it can probably remember!  But is it fair for it to be the butt of so many jokes?

Sex and Hippies  
As subjects, naturally seem to go together. Whether we're discussing nudity in general, uninhibited sex and more, a person can't think of hippies and not eventually turn his/her mind to free love and flower power.

Mata Hari - 100 years
Is it the fact she danced nearly nude at a time when such behaviour was considered beyond abominable for a woman...or is it the fact she stayed seductive even while she sold secrets as a double agent? She embodied the fantasy men wanted and the fantasy women wanted to be.

Dracula - Erotic Romantic Legend
Originally written as a love story, this "horror"  took on a life of its own, giving the myth of the vampire more substance than it had ever experienced.  

The Anthology of Sex Toys

Casanova's Favorite Sexual Positions Learn From a Master   
Reading Casanova's memoirs (in case you haven't done so) might seem to be simply a sexual manual. The book however covers other matters and is a great read in its own right.

The Rise of the New Burlesque
The closure of the Lord Chamberlain's office in 1968 marked the abolition of formal censorship in the UK theatre and a widespread relaxing of restrictions on the nature of material available for public display on the stage. 

Victorian Swoon & Erotica  
Do you long for sustained, bewildering, climatic romance that keeps you chained to your chaise lounge? Oooh, pass the chocolates please. What is Victorian Swoon? ... it provided an imaginative escape for working class readers (and secret lady readers) into the fantasia of unlikely romance with mysterious gentlemen.

The Lido: Famous for an Erotic Novel and Kidnapped Crusaders
The Lido is a narrow sandbar approximately 15 km long and 2km wide which virtually separates the eastern side of the Venetian lagoon from the Adriatic Sea.

Sex In Ancient Greece - Favorite Positions For Sex
No ancient society’s daily habits and sexual preferences have been more recorded than those of the ancient Greeks. The Greeks were sexually liberated, and would even seem open minded by today’s standards.

Ghost Sex
Ghost stories, legends, suspenseful tales or lusty encounters with spectral lovers… all these can fuel the imagination beyond our capacity to understand why the human condition begs smoke and mirror behavior. We beg to be scared.

Vampires: the Romantic Ideology behind Them 
The French Revolution constituted for the conscience of the dominant aristocratic class a fall from innocence, and upturning of the natural chain of events that resounded all over Europe; the old regime became, in their imaginary, a paradise lost.

Jack the Ripper
At around 3.40am on August 31st 1888, a carter named Charles Cross was making his way along Bucks Row Whitechapel, when he noticed a bundle lying in a gateway.

Dracula - Erotic Romantic Legend
Originally written as a love story, this "horror"  took on a life of its own, giving the myth of the vampire more substance than it had ever experienced.

Amsterdam Sex & Drugs   
Whether you fly or drive to the European country of The Netherlands, you will definitely want to visit the city of Amsterdam. Amsterdam is the Dutch capital and its nightlife has no competitor in Europe. Prostitution and soft drugs are legal in Amsterdam as in all parts of The Netherlands.

How Did You Spend New Years Day?
The ancient Babylonians (near as historians can tell...) were the first to celebrate New Years Day, believing that how you spent the day, would effect the entire year. 

Making Love to Marilyn's Ghost
To this day, more than forty years after her death, we still haven’t figured out how her charisma kept men on a string and how she managed each day as a public goddess.

Elegant Gothic Lolita Fashion (Gothloli) 
The Elegant Gothic Lolita look, often called simply Gothic Lolita or EGL, started in Japan which still remains its principle area of practise by far. However, the Gothic Lolita trend has gradually spread outside of Japan and now has a strong following in many Western countries although the average age of the practitioners is perhaps a little older.

Paris Hilton and the Holy Temple Prostitutes   
The internet was just born and already it has 6 billion websites, one for every person on Earth today. Human beings are obsessed with writing and even more obsessed with Paris Hilton, the number one search on the internet. Lets get to know a little about our modern day Aphrodite aka Venus, the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Sex worshipped by the Greek and Roman people 4 thousand years ago. 

Vampires: the Romantic Ideology behind Them   
The French Revolution constituted for the conscience of the dominant aristocratic class a fall from innocence, and upturning of the natural chain of events that resounded all over Europe; the old regime became, in their imaginary, a paradise lost.

I started to write the review on Inside Deep Throat then I realized it was getting entirely too long.

Remember the Dukes of Hazzard?  Daisy became a symbol for all that was sexy back in those days and Jessica hasn't failed to fuel the fires once again.

The Wedding Veil
The veil dates back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. They were wary of evil spirits and demons, and bright colors were believed to scare off these unwanted spirits.

At around 3.40am on August 31st 1888, a carter named Charles Cross was making his way along Bucks Row Whitechapel, when he noticed a bundle lying in a gateway. Presuming it to be a tarpaulin, and thinking that it might prove useful, he went to examine it and discovered, instead, that it was the body of a woman.

Reflecting on the History of Women
I’ve made a conscience effort to truly contemplate and study the story of women this month since it is nationally recognized as Women’s History Month. I expanded my studies beyond just the recent feminist history, which in my opinion is a definite highlight of our history to this point, to include our history since the start of written record.

A Remote Island Where Modern Britain Was Born
One of the ironies of Wales is that its people are anything but Welsh. They are the ancient Briton’s, the original occupants of what is now the United Kingdom, who were driven westward by Saxon invaders. The Saxon’s, both unable and unwilling to understand the language of those whose lands they had taken, dismissed them as “Welsh” – their word for foreigner.

Would Socrates Be A Celebrity Today?
Last week, as I was standing in the checkout line of my local grocery store, I found myself staring at the dozen or so magazines on display. As I gazed upon the various photos and headlines praising or trashing the celebrity du jour, I got to thinking.

The Mermaid - Seductive Babe of the Sea
The babe on the rock, with the fins and scales?...you know the one. She sits on a rock in a harbor, swims across art, lives forever in marble and has remarkable adventures in fiction. She's the Mermaid. A quintessential image of woman and the sea.

Throughout the history of human beings, we have evidence to show that men did shave their faces, even as long ago as 20 millennia.  

Insights on Infidelity from Hillary Clinton's Book
There are nuggets of information on surviving infidelity scattered throughout Hillary Clinton's account of the Clinton-Lewinsky affair in her book "Living History."

Breasts - baby-feeders or sexual objects?
Breasts in North America are a taboo: going topless on beaches is
not generally accepted, breastfeeding in public is often frowned

considered shameful and immodest behavior.

February 14th, the holiday of Love! Every February, across the country, candy, flowers, and gifts are exchanged between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.

Sexual Positions In History
Most adult humans have had at least a fleeting look at some of the more erotic and downright raunchy hardcore of history.  Those Egyptians and Greeks and Romans could sure turn a grand cock or two on pottery we can still admire today.

Wolves, Goats, Martyrs and War
A History of Valentine's Day

Valentines Day is one of the most enigmatic of holidays, having appeared in many forms. But all “Valentine’s Days” have drawn suspicion. In fact, after hundreds of years of attempted reform, Christian observance came to an end when the Catholic Church purged St. Valentine’s Day from its calendar in 1969.

Ghost Sex
Ghost stories, legends, suspenseful tales or lusty encounters with spectral lovers… all these can fuel the imagination beyond our capacity to understand why the human condition begs smokes and mirror behavior. We beg to be scared.

Henry VIII
Marriage, monarchy and man about town

Henry didn’t like marriage. Contrary to popular belief, he really didn’t care much for it at all. Henry liked being king, he loved the perks and he liked duty. Duty dictated the Monarch leave a male heir.  Now, you may ask, where does this leave those six lovely women he dragged to the altar?

Mardi Gras
Breasts and beads or revelry gone wrong? 
Mardi Gras, literally translated, means Fat Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday). Fat Tuesdays falls before Ash Wednesday in the celebration of Lent. Much of the tradition around the celebration of Mardi Gras comes directly from Twelfth Night revelers and the mischief that was the foundation of that celebration. 

Lady Godiva
Nude for the people of Coventry

If Lady Godiva (circa 11th century A.D) attempted her famous ride today, she would be arrested for public indecency. What most people don’t know is that her naked ride through the town of Coventry was done for social good; the good of the people.

Grotesques
The Sheela-Na-Gig let it all hang out
Cruise the old churches of Europe and you’re sure to run into the Sheela-Na-Gig. She’s found on arches and carved in stones. Her huge head, staring eyes and her hands reaching down between her wide open legs to spread her swollen and oversized womanhood suggest more prostitution than protection. But the Sheela are indeed protection. 

Gargoyles – Those Sexy Devils
The history of gargoyles is really rather simple, but includes all the things that make for a fun read. Gargoyles hold within their stony, ugly visages aspects of pagan gods, sex with demons and the pushing of conversion to the Catholic Church.

Pope Joan … er… John
Is that a staff under your robe or are you just happy to see me
   
Legend has it (there are strong arguments for fact and fiction) there once resided, over the Vatican, a female pope. Hard to believe, I know. Here’s the story. 

Zeus and His Women
Zeus was one very randy god. Few were well behaved, although one must examine the traditions and morals of the day to understand that what constitutes good behavior today is not necessarily how they saw it in the toga-wearing world where Zeus did the big cheese thing on Olympus.

"I Used To Be Snow White ...but I drifted"
A fun interview with the legendary and dead Mae West

Strange U.S. Sex Laws 
-
In Bakersfield, California, anyone having intercourse with Satan must use a condom. (An asbestos one we presume.)
- In Oblong, Illinois, it's punishable by law to make love while hunting or fishing on your wedding day.

Breasts Through The Ages
Ah …The breast. So many varieties. They are everywhere these days. Turn on the computer and up pops an ad. Turn on the television and the characters are active. Breasts in magazines, advertisements, everywhere.

Obsessing Over Youth     
Elizabeth Bathory became the most notorious member of a family which produced kings and generals. She went beyond the extremes in her sexual and sadistic pleasures with the victims of her obsession. A true account of the Blood Countess of Transylvania.         

The History of the Dildo 
The dildo has had a very sordid history. It has been used for the same basic function for humankind's existence. Yet its evolution stretches from "I can't believe I'm using camel dung" to "I'm out of batteries but I don't care".

Catherine the Great Horses Around  
Ask just about anyone what they may know of Catherine the Great of Russia and they will either take on that wonderfully oblivious blank stare, or tell you she died while coupling with one of her horses.
