Without the Christian church of the Middle Ages, Sigmund Freud of the 19th century would have been out of work. The Church had opinions and laws about every aspect of sex. Adultery and fornication in some cases were sins punishable by death, but for a time the Church actually condoned prostitution, admitting that it was a necessary evil. And in the early part of the Middle Ages, priests were actually allowed to marry and have children. Descriptions of sex acts were often described in great detail that sounded as if they were written with some enjoyment.
Historians of the Middle Ages have been exploring issues related to sex and sexuality. Here are some of the more interesting pieces of research we have uncovered about sex in the Middle Ages.
