Elizabethan molly-bar. (cheshyre and angevin2 just has twin myocardial infarctions
You know me so well...

In truth, I got to that line and ran to find my copy of Alan Bray...
I'll bet you Cook read Bray and completely missed all the transitions describing the the molly houses at the "close of the seventeenth century" "in sharp contrast" to what was available in the Elizabethan/Jacobean period, "only fifty years ... two or three generations" earlier...
Given the Publishers' Weekly review ("an Elizabethan-era gay bar") I suspected something like that from Cook.


BTW, if you want more Marlowe sex scenes for comparison, I've got Mignon sitting on the desk beside me. And then there's always The Golden Cockerel :)
