In the 1850s, the Camden Society was on the point of publishing the diaries of the Elizabethan astrologer Simon Forman, but they withdrew them from the press because they were thought to be too sexually explicit. Thankfully, times have changed and you can read all about the frolics and foibles of Forman and his contemporaries in this well-researched account of Renaissance rogering. Haynes uncovers 16th-century evidence of every kind of sexual permutation and preference (well, almost) and the result is both scholarly and readable. (Kirkus UK)
