Filthy French fables.

Medieval French Sex

Largely unavailable for centuries, a new collection of bawdy, naughty, and vivid medieval French tales reminds us that our ancestors were a dirty bunch. Yunte Huang on what they reveal about human nature. Be warned: don’t read this with your mother.

Not all that unavailable. I remember borrowing a copy of Fabliaux from my local library in Richmond (Yorks) when I was still at school. A collection of them can also be found on Wikisource.
