For over a thousand years, England's capital has been associated with desire, avarice and the sins of the flesh. In this text, Catharine Arnold turns her gaze to the city's relationship with vice through the ages. The book examines the sexual history of London from AD 80 until the present, including the history of the sex industry in the capital, homosexuality, the past of pornographic publishers on Fleet Street and details the relevant tolerance of London compared with other cities at the time. The book is described as a 'fascinating and vibrant chronicle of London at its most raw and vibrant'.
