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


Viking Sex

Ep. 38

Who was Loki having sex with? What is a horse penis cult? And were the Vikings as brutal as we think they were?

Betwixt the Sheets today, Kate is joined by Dr Cat Jarman, one of the hosts of our sister podcast Gone Medieval. From the recollections of Ibn Fadlan to Icelandic sagas filled with pick up lines, we find out the truth about being in bed with the Vikings.

*WARNING there is adult language and discussions of sexual assault in this episode*

Produced by Charlotte Long, Sophie Gee and Robert Weinberg.
