Although that time period may be viewed as stuffy and repressive by some, these highly-educated, respected men pushed the boundaries of decency. Each month, they would gather for X-rated drinking games and more. As the article describes:
"Early in the evening, naked village girls, known as posture molls, posed on tables in acrobatic positions to reveal "the Secrets of Nature." Pornographic texts were read. They would then make toasts from the lewd drinking vessels, known as prick glasses... The club president would then open up the wooden box, revealing a motley wig that, according to club tradition, had been woven from the pubic hairs of King Charles II's many mistresses. Members would take turns wearing it, evidently using the talisman to enhance their sexual potency."
The society dissolved just as Queen Victoria was about to take the throne in 1836, but The Museum of the University of St. Andrews still houses the group's unusual artifacts -- away from tourists.
