About Me

I came to the U.S. at age of 12 with my mother. We settled in sunny Florida, which was quite a contrast to Minsk. I have always been fascinated by sex and relationships. Sex Secrets is where I share sex advice, experiences, news, and sometimes a little humor. If you have a question about sex that you prefer not to post in the comments, you can email me at svetlanaivano(at)yahoo.com.

Sex In The Middle Ages: 10 Titillating Facts You Wanted To Know But Were Afraid to Ask

The point of articles like this, of course, is to make ourselves feel superior by laughing at how ignorant or weird our ancestors were. Nevertheless, they can still be interesting from a historical standpoint. Some men may wish that fact number five was still in fashion.

Without the Christian church of the Middle Ages, Sigmund Freud of the 19th century would have been out of work. Many of the deepest ideas and notions of sex that we hold today were formulated and laid down in the Middle Ages, especially by the Church’s sometimes confused and other times severe pronouncements.

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. Read more

Another Reason You Should Think Twice Before Sending an Unwanted Dick Pic

There are many reasons for this, chief among them being that it’s totally ineffective: if you send a woman a photo of your dick when she hasn’t asked for it first, she will either a) be outraged or b) immediately text it to 7 or 8 of her closest friends, who will immediately start mocking your penis.
