After the dark of the puritanical rule of Oliver Cromwell, the Restoration of King Charles II pulled the English nation by its cravat out into the sweetness and light of social liberty. Sex and violence resumed their status as enjoyable pastimes. With cellars full of wine and barrels full of wit, scandal was but a quip away. England was smiling again. With the King setting the pace, the scandal-smiths hit the ground running. Samuel Pepys said that the King "did doat on his women, even beyond all shame.

Constant Delights looks - from a rather jaunty angle - at one of the most remarkable and fashionable periods in English history. Peopled with names such as Milton, Pepys, Dryden, Halley, Purcell, Bunyan, Wren, Lely and Kneller, the reign of Charles II (1660-85) was a time of innovation, creativity and beauty. It also had more than its fair share of debauchery - gambling, drinking, sex and violence, to be precise. That's where Constant Delights picks up the story. Constant Delights reports in a lively and readable way on the outrageous characters whose deeds filled newsletters and satires, and who fuelled dinner table and satire talk. Soundly researched, it exposes the fops, the rakes, the rogues, the whores, the slatterns, the bitches. And that's just the men.
