Family Newspapers?

Sex, Private Life, and the British Popular Press 1918-1978

Adrian Bingham

  • First detailed history of sex and private lives in the modern popular press
  • Highlights changing ideas of what sexual content was considered acceptable for a 'family newspaper'
  • Challenges established interpretations - argues the press opened up the public discussion of sexuality before the 'permissive' 1960s
  • Explores the wide diversity of coverage of sexual matters, from advice columns to celebrity revelations
