This chapter lays out the book’s central arguments about the emergence of sex-talk into print during the English Revolution and provides important context for the narrative chapters that follow. It defines key terms, including the crucial analytical category of ‘sexual politics’; surveys the political, religious and cultural lenses through which early moderns approached gender, sexuality and the body; and explains how the study fits into the current historiographies of the English civil wars, the Restoration and the history of Western sexuality. The chapter concludes with a brief survey of English sexual politics as they developed during the Tudor and early Stuart periods.
