67-The Bad Touch

RUDE TUDORS IS NOW BI-MONTHLY! Kissing and embracing was a regular part of courtship in Renaissance England. But what happened when your beloved didn’t want you to touch them? Find out in this latest episode of history podcast Rude Tudors, hosted by literary historian Liz Rodriguez and nerdy laywoman Nicole Keating. This episode explores two popular ballads describing lovelorn men who won’t take “no” for an answer. Find out the answers to...  How do the vocabularies of love and assault intersect? What can songs about kissing and embracing tell us about the history of romance, relationships, and sexuality? What do Drake and John Mayer have in common with early modern balladeers?  Take a raunchy jaunt through the period of Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, and Shakespeare.
