Have your say

SCOTLAND was at the centre of the first sexual revolution, according to academics.

While it is often claimed London led the way in the 1960s, Edinburgh University researchers claim the Scottish capital was home to a revolution almost 200 years earlier.

At a conference this week they will challenge the idea that the 1700s were a prim and proper era. .

Instead they will argue that pornography, crossdressing, homosexuality and birth control can all be dated back to this time.
