In Pre-Revolutionary France, sodomy (in all its different meanings) was, in theory, a capital crime, whether practiced between men (sodomites), women (tribads), heterosexual couples or (since it... More > included masturbation) alone. In practice, most sodomy cases involved men, though this collection includes two legal cases involving women with a "monstrous attachment" to their own sex and a general glance at "unnatural" practices between heterosexuals. This second volume of the Old Regime Police Blotter presents a number of these cases, including, for the first time in English, most of the trial transcripts for the Chausson and Deschauffours cases and extensive material from the abbé Desfontaines' case (which briefly involved Voltaire), as well as an overview of Old Regime law on this subject and a look at some of the applicable slang.
