How kinky!

Ever read 18th century literature? Have you, like me, ever felt like their language is just waaay over your head?

We were doing a close reading of the preface to Mercy Otis Warren’s The Rise, Progress, and Termination of the American Revolution when suddenly, a phrase!

*gasp*

Jokingly, the professor says, “What the hell is that? It sounds kinky!” Everyone laughed, of course.

Then he says, “Well, somebody explain this. What is ‘epistolary intercourse’?”

And then… *crickets*

No one knew. Well, I did. But I didn’t want to be the nerd. Again.

Do you know what “epistolary intercourse” is?
