Sarah Slater has worked at Hampton Court Palace for Historic Royal Palaces as a State Apartment Warder and Tourist Guide for over 14 years.

In period costume, Sarah will talk about all the naughty bits of history you would probably not have learnt about at school!

She will discuss royal mistresses, prostitution, sexual diseases of the time and the, often unusual, methods used to prevent STDs and unwanted pregnancies.

Warning: this talk is not for the prude, it is fun and enjoyable but a little bit rude!
