Video: Trial by sex

Like divorce is new.

The Victorian emphasis on female frigidity (aside from being an excuse to outsource orgasms to competent machines) was actually more of an over-reaction to the common claim of male impotence.

Female frigidity really doesn’t mean much in a society that doesn’t value the female orgasm, Victorian men had a love/hate relationship with anything that connected their wife to their faking-it mistress. At least, it isn’t necessary for conception. Historically, it’s meaningless.

This has yet to appear in a Game of Thrones episode but it should.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
