in consequence of the missive, To quote ..., penned by Reeba
Austen's juvenilia is full of references to racy subjects such as drunkenness, illicit love affairs illegitimate children etc as Is I understnad Lady Susan. I think as she grew older, wrote for publication and "may" have had a bit of a "religious awakening" about the time of writing Mansfield Park doesn't mean that she wasn't aware of what went on in the world and I think that it is possible that Jane was aware of such things as naval "sexual goings on".. I think that its possible that her brothers might have jested about such subjects at times.
