Using case studies from the 19th and early 20th Centuries, the pathway explores the links between procreative sexuality, family life and social policy. It discusses how attitudes to sexuality evolved alongside other changes happening in society. It goes on to examine sexual behaviour from a function performed for the act of procreation within the sanctity of marriage, to something pleasurable, or spiritual. Changing societal attitudes to sexuality can be observed by tracking the way that laws and rules have relaxed.
What does a philosopher have to say on this topic? An audio discussion between two philosophers considers whether love is a purely functional feeling, and whether love is a trick that’s played on us by our genes or by our culture to push us into relationships to procreate. Is love a way of persuading us to stay with one partner when actually our sexual desire may lie outside the relationship? The discussion covers the nature of sex in a fairly detailed but respectful way, as does a consideration of the sexual and violent excesses that the French writer the Marquis de Sade espoused. The pathway concludes with an analysis of the portrayal of flirtation and sexuality in 18th Century portraits of actresses housed in the English National Portrait Gallery in London.
