A post yesterday at Erotic Scribes (which is the house blog for Sssh.com) examined in some detail the limited potential for Thanksgiving to be a sexy holiday. The Puritans of the Plymouth Colony, of course, did not have much truck with sexytimes; or at least, that was official policy. I was therefore amused that Erotic Scribes came up with a rather salacious account of a Puritan orgy in what sounds like an otherwise fairly dry history, a book called Plymouth Colony: Its History and Its People, 1620-1691. Here’s how it (they) all went down:

Hands-down one of the wildest accounts involved a sex party with one babe, four dudes – and lots of complications. The scene was Hatch house where young miss Lydia Hatch seemed to be the instigator, with her brother Jonathan there for fun too. Joining them were Edward Mitchell, Edward Preston and John Keene.

The only woman with a party of four men – including her brother, Lydia Hatch’s secret party hit a hitch. One guy snitched.

First, Lydia wanted Ed Mitchell to “abuse her body,” but he was up for “lude and sodomiticall practices” with Ed Preston. Meanwhile, Ed Preston was “pressing” John Keene for some action. So Lydia first ended up in bed with her brother Jon while Ed Mitchell got it on with Ed Preston who gave up on John Keene “because he resisted the temptacon.” Finally, Lydia got to do her deed with Ed Mitchell. For participating in what wase the only Puritan orgy (at least the only one found out) the partiers ended up getting a run-of-the-mill whipping – all except for John Keene, who had ratted them all out, but was found “faulty” for watching it all.
