The Medieval Podcast – Medieval Sexuality with Eleanor Janega

The Medieval Podcast – Medieval Sexuality with Eleanor Janega

I was lucky enough to spend some time chatting with Danièle Cybulskie on The Medieval Podcast the other week. Have a listen if you want to know exactly, why widows were so sexy, why it can be hard for us to find our LGBT friends in medieval texts, and what the nicest looking dildo in the medieval period was made from.

Those who may be interested in finding their very own medieval pilgrim vulva badge are encouraged to check here and here for starters. You can also join the phallus tree badge crew thanks to Alison Atkin over here.


If you enjoyed this, please consider contributing to my patreon. If not, that is chill too!
