No Forgiveness was granted!
Men were instead treated with contempt and suffered great amounts of humiliation.
All of the Above!
Unfortunately, there was very little acceptance of individuality for men in this century.
Actively blamed the victim
During this time period, society believed that "a girl who behaved in a way appropriate to her future destiny as a mother was not likely to end up in a situation in which she would be raped" :( :( :(
Reverend Martin Madan!

There were a minimum of 3,000 active prostitutes at any time during this time period in London.
May, July, August!
During these months there is an increased level of streetwalking associated with the great London fairs.
Women were sent to the house of correction!
This is one example of a punishment for those who were found to be a prostitute during the later 1700's.
