Edwardian Eros

The point made in lecture regarding the Edwardian reserve in sexual matters being more eros than prudery is illustrated well by a National Lampoon cover from 1981 which represents our own Age's anti-Edwardian--that is, unreserved--eros as creating sexual dis-satisfaction.
The issue cover can be found online at this link.
