Interesting, though I guess (as someone who bummed around 18th-century British sources in a past life) not so surprising when you consider even the "mainstream" binge-everything bawdiness of mid-1700s British literature. Or Hogarth; all that's left unsaid in those slice-of-life etchings is pretty much "The Cabinet" et al. About ten years ago, I think it was, Channel Four over there did a nice documentary about the fact that one of the most important salons of the English Enlightenment was in fact a bordello that specialized in what the French call "le vice anglais" (think naughty boys, firm-tempered ladies, and riding crops....)

Only in the world of io9 could it be a "new discovery" [sic] that John Wilmot was the greatest bawdy poet in English between Chaucer and Swinburne.

Sh*t, man, didn't anyone there see The Libertine?
