When Passion Reigned: Sex and Victorians - Patricia Anderson

It was an interesting book. Anderson's premise seems to be that the Victorians were not as repressed as they're portrayed (which at this point I think is common knowledge but maybe it wasn't in 1996) but also that passion was a part of sex, which is something we've lost (although she doesn't elaborate on that part as much).

The problem is when she gets to the chapter on porn and edgier play. Her own disapproval is so strong it makes me question why she chose the sources she did which makes me quesiton the choice of the rest of her primary documents.
