History of Sex For Sale

Betwixt The Sheets: The History of Sex, Scandal & Society

Many people claim sex work to be the oldest profession, but we can likely put that down to being midwifery or medical professionals of some sort.

However, since money has changed hands, it has also done so for sex.

In today’s episode of Betwixt the Sheets we’re going back to a conversation I had with Dan Snow on Dan Snow’s History Hit,

How have attitudes to those who sell sex changed through history? What might you find in a Roman brothel? And were the Victorians really as prudish as we think them to be?

This podcast was edited by Dougal Patmore and produced by Stuart Beckwith. The senior producer was Charlotte Long.
