http://romancedivas.com/?p=3920#comment-394768 I wish I’d known more about sex when I was a young woman. I grew up in a very conservative household, and while I think much of that was good, I now know I didn’t know enough. I can relate to those young ladies in days past who were kept totally ignorant, though I did know more than they did, poor things!
I suspect mothers back then who truly loved their daughters did the best they could to prepare them, but I can remember my own mother being horribly embarrassed to talk about the subject.
I’m looking forward to reading Temptation of Lady Serena. It’s not far down my ‘to read’ list.

Of course, there are families…and families. They could try to cover it up, of course. Marry her off quickly or send her to the country to pretend to be a war widow. Or throw the girl into the streets. Makes for interesting stories. But I have a hard time understanding how a caring family would neglect protecting their daughter in a time when virginity and reputation were so important. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy Regencies with sex scenes, though!]]>
I don’t doubt that premarital sex did exist, but it’s my understanding that—in the upper classes at least—young ladies were chaperoned everywhere they went. A girl discovered kissing a gentleman on the terrace would be “ruined” and her chaperone chastised for neglect of duty. How in the world would a young lady escape long enough to have repeated sexual encounters? An engaged couple was allowed more liberty, but would the girl’s family turn a blind eye to this before the vows were spoken? I mean, what if she got pregnant and her fiancé fell off his horse and got killed? The whole family would share in the scandal.

http://romancedivas.com/?p=3920#comment-394756 I think one of the reasons I like Regency romance is the chase. Yes, sex is the ultimate, particularly for the man, but the tantalizing moments of the woman discovering her sensuality is what makes a good romance book for me.

http://romancedivas.com/?p=3920#comment-394751 I didn’t know it was illegal for women at the time to buy erotica or pornography. Very interesting.
