[Deep Dive] - Sex & Relationships in C19th Ireland




Warning: this episode contains spoilers for Part 1 & 2 of Murder at Mother Mountain


Sex, Love & Marriage have been central to the story so far. In the second deep dive interview I chat with Dr Sarah Anne Buckley and we explore how attitudes to these topics differed in the 19th century. 


Sarah Anne explained what an arranged marriage was and if people loved each other when they didn't chose their own partners? We also discussed sex in the 19th century and I discovered that the stereotype of 19th century prudishness is far off the mark!


Towards the end of the interview we also discussed pregnancy and how it was an extremely dangerous time for women.
