A Leashed Wife, For Selling

ErosBlog has a recent post about the quaint practice of holding public wife auctions in Merrie Olde England. Apparently it was mostly about getting around restrictions on divorce, with a side order of being totally fed up with each other’s spousal bullshit. Usually wife selling was mutual and consensual and the “buyer” prearranged, but the ritual was that of a full-fledged public auction, with the leashed wife paraded about on public view like livestock, her virtues (and faults) extolled, and open bidding entertained with much public merriment:
