Medieval Sexuality with Eleanor Janega

Sexuality was a huge part of medieval culture, from the rules about how and when to have sex, to the dirty jokes that found their way into religious art. This week, Danièle speaks with Dr. Eleanor Janega about getting medieval in the bedroom.

Eleanor Janega is Guest Teacher at the Department of International History of the London School of Economics and Political Science, where she works on sexuality and its influence on medieval and early modern society.
