Victorian Health

In the Victorian Era, a doctor could have a carriage trade of just a few wealthy women invalids that he visited every day. It was a status symbol for a wealthy gentleman to have a personal physician come to the house to minister to his wife. Now we know what kind of treatment was being offered!

Did you see the movie "The Road to Wellville" with Anthony Hopkins and Matthew Broderick? There is a hilarious scene in it with one of the masturbating doctors.

I think it's important that we all know a little about this subject so interesting, I think it's part of human culture tell us about such things.
