Some episodes are fascinating, some are repellant, some are bizarre, but all are obscene.

Well done Pam Cox on a fascinating programme about 19th century female shop workers. This is a good piece of TV, engaging with the facts in a clear demonstration of the value of history. Shopgirls showed how much more there is to feminist history than the Sugffragettes and Downton Abbey. One strand which Shopgirls covered with unflinching detail was the sex lives of female shop workers. Some shop girls would enhance their income with casual prostitution, others frequented the music halls, dressed in their finest, and on the look-out for a good catch. It is no surprise that a young woman who worked for a pound or less per month might be easily seduced by a man with a sovereign.
My earliest recollections of things sexual are of what I think must have occurred some time between my age of five, and eight years. I tell of them just as I recollect them, without attempt to fill in what seems probable. She was I suppose my nursemaid. I recollect that she sometimes held my little prick when I piddled, was it needful to do so? I don't know.
