Jane Austen more likely to have had sex with a woman than a man
Jane Austen almost certainly never had sex with a man and may have instead engaged in “lesbian sex”, according to a historian. Lucy Worsley, a BBC presenter, said the esteemed Georgian era novelist did not have heterosexual sex because of her place in Britain’s rigid class system. Writing in her new book Jane Austen at Home: A Biography, Worsley says: “People often long to know if the eternal spinster Jane Austen ever had sex with a man. The answer is almost certainly not."
