How Accurate Are the Sex Scenes in The Favourite?
Would it have been common for women to be married to men and also have female sexual partners?
In pre-modern society people lived in a much more complex web of kinship with each other. It was really modernity that reduced all forms of chosen kinship to marriage. It used to be just one form among many, and there was absolutely no sense that once you were married that your other intimate relationships, including sexual relationships, would end. Often what women did is they would marry off their “favorite” attending gentlewomen to a relative — Queen Elizabeth was really big on this — so that they could keep them around forever. And the monarchical bed was not really a private space. It was sort of a public space in a lot of ways; there were lots of people in and out of it.

How This All Happened · Collaborative Fund
Now you can see the problem.

Joe, an investment banker making $900,000 a year, buys a 4,000 square foot house with two Mercedes and sends three of his kids to Pepperdine. He can afford it.

Peter, a bank branch manager making $80,000 a year, sees Joe and feels a subconscious sense of entitlement to live a similar lifestyle, because Peter’s parents believed – and instilled in him – that Americans’ lifestyles weren’t that different even if they had different jobs. His parents were right during their era, because incomes fell into a tight distribution. But that was then. Peter lives in a different world. But his expectations haven’t changed much from his parents, even if the facts have.

So what does Peter do?

He takes out a huge mortgage. He has $45,000 of credit card debt. He leases two cars. His kids will graduate with heavy student loans. He can’t afford the stuff Joe can, but he’s pushed to stretch for the same lifestyle. It is a big stretch.

This would have seemed preposterous to someone in the 1930s. But we’ve spent a half-century since the end of the war fostering a cultural acceptance of household debt.

During a time when median wages were flat, the median new American home grew 50% larger:
