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


Teen Sex

Ep. 74

Do you remember the first time you thought about sex? Or the first time you talked to someone else about sex?

In this episode, Kate is discussing mid-20th century teenage sexuality with Hannah Charnock from the University of Bristol. Hannah has been using first hand accounts to find out how teenagers would find out what's ‘wrong’ or ‘right’, ‘good’ or ‘bad’, and what role the American base system has played in British sexualities.
