HOW OUTRAGEOUS Celebrating a scandalous milestone and reading
from a “Dirty book” with Simon Talbot
London 2020 Hello rogues this is just a short video to
announce that I’ve just noticed the Rogues Gallery Online has had over its five millionth
view – which is brilliant. I’m glad you lot are enjoying these tales
of disreputable history and I want to thank each one of you from the bottom of my depraved
heart for your continued support of the channel. In a minute as an added extra im going to
take a quick look at one of the most infamous books in recent literary history “Lady Chatterley’s
Lover” but first I want to ask your opinion about something.
Because of the somewhat risqué subject matter of some of my videos Youtube – which seems
to be becoming ever more a platform that only supports unchallenging family and advertiser
friendly content – has stated age restricting my work.
Now I don’t have a problem with the age restriction – kids should not be exposed
to 18th century gentlemen getting their arses flogged as they were in my last video “House
of Pain” but the effect it has on the number of views I get is nothing short of catastrophic.
House of pain got over 17 thousand views in less than a week before it was age restricted
and then – as you can see from this screenshot the number of views plummeted off a cliff
and the video now seems consigned to some obscure little corner where no one can find
it if they’re looking and no one is being told about it if they’re not.
So the question is in order to make sure that people actually get to see my videos and I
don’t fall foul of community guidelines should I compromise what I do and self-censor
my videos? I think part of what makes Rogues Gallery
what it is the fact that it is as colourful in its language and imagery as the characters
themselves – not gratuitously of course as that would be vulgar.
But if hardly anyone is allowed to enjoy the videos because they could not be enjoyed by
a five-year-old how is the channel going to grow.
Let me know in the comment section below if you think I should start uploading a less
racy rogues gallery. Would having little black modesty circles covering the “naughty bits”
on vintage images be ok, and should I start covering the occasional “rude word” with
a hilarious ???? sound effect. Or should I say “gosh darn em” and carry
on just the way I am. Whatever your opinion the more you loveable
rogues like and share each video and of course subscribe to the channel the more history
loving adults will get the opportunity to enjoy what I do.
I’d really appreciate finding out what you guys think.
Just leave a comment. And now as a thank you for 5 million views
I will retire to my library of leather-bound books, make myself comfortable in a loose-fitting
robe and thumb through a copy of one of the twentieth century’s most infamous novels
Lady’s Chatterley’s Lover Lady Chatterley’s lover was written by English
author DH Lawrence and published privately in 1928.
It’s about a married noblewoman in 1920s England whose emotionally distant husband
has been paralyzed from the waist down during the first world war. Frustrated and desperate
for physical and emotional sensation she has a highly sexual affair with a gamekeeper called
Oliver Mellor’s. In between the shagging it’s a book about
class, the nature of what it means to be alive and what constitutes love.
For those who were easily offended by words, – im looking at you youtube – the book was
a nightmare The word ‘flock’ or ‘flocking’ appeared
30 times ‘can’t’ 14 times;
‘balls’ 13 times; ‘shit’ and ‘arse’ six times apiece;
‘crock’ four times; ‘miss’ three times,
And “womb” and “bowels” too many times to count.
Even Orgasms were referred to – albeit under the bizarre description “coming to one’s crisis”
The use of forbidden words, the explicitness of the sex (missionary position only) and
lady Chatterley enjoyment of it – with a glorified gardener – prevented an unexpiated
version of the book being published in England for over thirty years.
And when it was finally put in print in 1960 the publishers were put on trial.
Penguin books were charged under the Obscene Publications act 1959 – a new law that made
it possible for publishers to escape conviction if they could show that the book had literary
merit. For many the fact that they indented publishing
the book in paperback at a cost of 3 and 6 – putting it within the reach of ordinary
woman and the working class that made them so dangerous.
Don’t give em anything edgy they won’t know what to do with it.
The prosecutor Mervyn Griffith-Jones was adamant that the book was a corrupting influence and
should not be published. It “induces lustful thoughts in the minds
of those who read it,” he said and “sets upon a pedestal promiscuous and adulterous
intercourse. It commends, and indeed it sets out to commend, sensuality almost as a virtue.
It encourages, and indeed even advocates, coarseness and vulgarity of thought and language.”
He famously added: “would you approve of your young sons, young daughters—because
girls can read as well as boys—reading this book? Is it a book that you would have lying
around in your own house? Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants
to read?” Witnesses for the defence included Dr John
Robinson, the Bishop of Woolwich and sociologist Richard Hoggart –The prosecution could not
get any major literary or cultural figures to agree with the premise of banning the book’s
publication. For the defence Gerald Gardiner did an exemplary
job of proving that the work possessed substantial literary merit, did not set out to deprave
and the sexual scenes were integral to the narrative and part of a message that readers
of the new decade were more than mature enough to understand – privately educated or not.
The verdict was in penguins’ favour and the book was cleared for publication, leading
to huge ques at bookshops from avid readers who wanted to know what all the fuss was about
or who were buying it for a friend – yeah right.
It was arguably the beginning of what became known as the “permissive society” which
some people see as a period of shame free liberation and others think was where an absolutely
perfect world stated to go to hell in a handcart. I believe the former.
In this extract – which, for those of a sensitive disposition contains scenes of two grown ups
behaving in a gown up way using over flowery language that grown ups used to use. – Lady
Chatterley and Mellor’s are enjoying a quick one
“Then as he began to move, in the sudden helpless orgasm, there awoke in her new strange trills
rippling inside her. Rippling, rippling, rippling, like a flapping overlapping of soft flames,
soft as feathers, running to points of brilliance, exquisite, exquisite and melting her all molten
inside. It was like bells rippling up and up to culmination.
She lay unconscious of the wild little cries she uttered at the last. But it was over too
soon, too soon, and she could no longer force her own conclusion with her own activity.
This was different, different. She could do nothing. She could no longer harden and grip
for her own satisfaction upon him. She could only wait, wait and moan in spirit as she
felt him withdrawing, withdrawing and contracting, coming to the terrible moment when he would
slip out and be gone. Whilst all her womb was open and soft, and softly clamouring,
like a sea-anemone under the tide, clamouring for him to come in again and make a fulfilment
for her. She clung to him unconscious in passion, and
he never quite slipped from her, and she felt the soft bud of him within her stirring and
strange rhythms flushing up into her with a strange rhythmic growing motion, swelling
and swelling till it filled her cleaving consciousness, and then began again the unspeakable motion
that was not really motion, but pure deepening whirlpools of sensation swirling deeper and
deeper through all her tissue and consciousness, till she was one perfect concentric fluid
of feeling, and she lay the crying in unconscious inarticulate cries.
The voice out of the uttermost night, the life! The man heard it beneath him with a
kind of awe, as his life sprang out into her. And as it subsided, he subsided too and lay
utterly still, unknowing, while her grip on him slowly relaxed, and she lay inert. And
they both knew nothing, not even each other, both lost.”

  1. Once a video has been "age restricted" it's almost impossible to find / search for and share😣
    I don't want you to change but if this channel is a major part of Your income then You make have to think about about ways to get around YouTube's somewhat antiquated rules.

  2. Dont change a thing , continue exposing the myth that the Victorians were prudes in long dresses that sex was for procreation only and popped there eyes at the sight of a bare ankle , and parents should keep an eye on there kids viewing .

  3. Please don't change for these omnipotent busybodies. I've been a subscriber since the beginning of the channel and I would hate to see things change. This channel is my break from Yankee politics that I can't seem to get enough of. I'm a glutton for punishment apparently.

  4. Keep the same, but… Put out two versions, a family friendly version, and the normal. Make it easy and obvious to get to the unexpurgated version.

    Btw, Fanny Hill would be a good follow up to this.

  5. You should not be censoring. YouTube should be ashamed of itself. I wouldn't mind but there's plenty of full frontal on YouTube – mostly described as "art". Try searching on "naked performance" or "topless singers", "nked opera" and similar terms.

  6. I'm a recent subscriber & love what you are doing. Please don't change a thing. If necessary , provide a link for the uncensored version as many have suggested. YT doesn't deserve you but we viewers do. Many thanks.

  7. As a long time fan the obvious answer is of course no one wants censorship dots or silly noises in place of what we have come to know and love. That being said, realistically your content is so good that it would be a damn shame to see it be algorithm'd into obscurity. Whatever your choice, goodluck.

  8. So you need to verify age? OK DO IT! Your content is NOT salacious but totaly witty and entertaining! Do not let the stiflers win! My felicitations to you Sir!

  9. Perhaps – and this is just a suggestion – create a version for both. Censoring your videos would be an absolute shame. Not to suggest that they are enjoyed only for their bawdiness – that would be just silly. I have no doubt that censorship, self or otherwise, would not reduce interest in the topic at hand, it would unfortunately reduce the entertainment value. Try a few or two in both censor edition and good old raunchy. The censoring could end up quite interesting on its own.

  10. I'd say don't censor, because your stuff is great, but if that means it becomes invisible, and hardly anyone sees it, it rather ruins the point of doing it at all. I think thr censor sites are pretty funny, and, as with clothing, let the imagination fill in that suggestion of dreadful naughtiness. I say, let as many people as possible see RG, even if they see a little less. Throw in the occasional barbed comment about YouPrude!

  11. Bloody You Tube…….! I've been reading porn since I was 11 – I used to rummage around to find Mayfairs, Club Internationals and other such jazz mags in the paper recycling bins in our local car park. Never did me any harm… Mind you, my palms are a bit hairy and I've been blind for years.

  12. I will NEVER stop watching! I will find your videos SIR!!!! don't change a thing. I guess you can block the gratuitous nipple with a lil black dot,it won't stop my admiration of the picture

  13. Dirty, filthy scoundrels abound..the more the merrier!..complete with blue language, humorous innuendo intact & rude illustrations galore! change needed here!..this channel is one of a kind & so I implore you dear sir, your channel must remain unfiltered & untampered with..x

  14. You cannot change history, well, maybe if you become the next President of the US you could give it a go. But if you change the content it won't be Rogues Gallery it will be Nice old folk gallery.

  15. Do both, upload the censored vid to youtube with a link to uncensored one in your patreon or youtube description to somewhere like bichute or something similar.

  16. I think your content is brilliant just as it is and youtube should go stuff themselves. I can tell you from experience (I teach art in grade school) that kids nowadays know exactly what a cock and a cunt is from a very early age because so many of them can draw both in great detail. I really don't think your style of videos would appeal to the vast majority of kids – if they want to get all hot and bothered there are far lusher pastures for them to go browse in. Also, I encourage every viewer to like and COMMENT as this might help bump up recommendations!

  17. Congratulations on the 5 million views. It remains a crime that do not have more but I am sure 2020 will be the year your channel explodes and zeros begin to fill the end of your subscriber count. Regarding your question, keep doing what you are doing. I think everyone who comes across your channel enjoys and appreciates your mischevious use of the spoken word overlaying the equally cheeky images. Youtube is in a 'Mary Whitehouse' stage and I think every channel not conforming to their ridiculous and ever changing standards are feeling the pinch. Keep up the great work and thank you for your unique and informative content.

  18. I have no issues with age-restrictions or even proving my age. I do object to age-restricted material being censored and its availability being reduced because Google can't filter correctly.

    If a person is not signed in to Youtube then apply the filters. If the person is signed in then you know my age: I want to see all that is available. My kids don't get near my account.

    I mean this from the heart of my bottom.

  19. You can blame the easily offended modern day puritans who screech when they hear even the word butt. Keep doing what you're doing best! Butt, tits, pussy, Dick, etc., etc!

  20. Even the question is a crude insult!! Carry on you silly wanker!! Keep on sinning due the work of god is to forgive.. Would the maquis de Sade capitulate? Would Giaccomo Cassanova abstein??
    NO!! NO!! NO!!
    Y would love to listen a reading of the book Gamiani by Mussett… One of my favorites..cheers..

  21. Youtube/Google insanity.
    Keep up your great works of sharing human depravity.
    In my young days we would go to a library and visit the art or antiquities section for a dose of nudity. For depravity and lust read the bible. 😄

  22. No self censorship! No dots! No bleeps! Carry on as always and damn the prudes. This channel is a wonderful relief from the modern moral crusade.

  23. As they say around here "You be you", and continue to deliver salacious, titillating and always witty videos. Be damned with the stupid dots and annoying whistles, full speed ahead!

  24. That thing made botanical gardens in spring look like a barren wasteland. Also in all honesty kids shouldn't be on Youtube in the first place. YouTube wasn't invented to watch people's children. It was meant for 13 and up.

  25. Do what you need to.

    As the great porn-hunter, Explorer, and Cunny-Sketcher Extrodinare Sir Richard Francis Burton, once wrote

    Do what thy manhood bids three to do
    From none but SELF accept applause
    Honoured lives and honoured dies
    He who keeps his Self-made laws.

  26. There was a move once to put pants on the statue of David. Keep doing what you do. This is truthful history and that’s all

  27. Your style has always been second to none, and makes it what it is. I personally wouldn't like you to sell out, but I understand if you do. I think YouTube is shooting itself in the foot with all this ott censorship bullshit, kids and adults hear worse language walking down most busy streets.

  28. agree with most respondents no not self censor, publish, you are only telling the truth [or as it is historical recorded] if the platform wants to age restrict maybe change platform

  29. It is the responsibility of parents, guardians, grandparents to monitor their children’s viewing on YouTube.

    No censorship!!!

  30. Congrats Man You Beautiful Rouge. Please for the love of all that is holy Do not fucking Censor your work. peace and love man

  31. Your medium is spot on and does not need any changes. This work is entertaining and clever. I never have so much more of a love and appreciation for history than to have discover this channel. Please do carry on with what you’re doing. The children and parents need to grow up at some point.

  32. Why don't you create two versions of the same video ? A censored version and an adult version?
    To be honest, your video's are for adults and not for kids. I love watching your video's but would never show them to my young children. But anyway, if you tick the not for children box no one should worry 🙂

  33. No. It is called history. No hiding from the truth.
    A little scandal never killed anyone.
    Youtube is not the Cartoon Network

  34. You tube doesn’t believe in freedom of speech. I wish someone else would start a new you tube and let you put whatever you want freedom of speech fuck off you tube

  35. No way. No self censorship. We adults should be allowed to enjoy your content in its glorious entirety. If adults can’t easily enjoy adult content by their own choice then modern society is lost.

  36. History is history and you present it in realistic way without dramatisation….. it is what it is….honest….. plus 5 year olds shouldn’t be watching…… keep it up…… excellent history……

  37. Don’t water them down. Keep going as you were, however put a little gap (1 sec., or so) between stories so they don’t run together as one story.

  38. Don't change a fucking thing or you will be condemned to reading Peppa Pig for all eternity!
    Choose your fate! 0_o ….and keep up the good work.

  39. Please please don’t change. I’m happy to confirm my age but you shouldn’t have to kowtow to PooChoob’s censorship, it’s not fair. Yours is the best channel on here and anyway, it would be like denying historical facts if you are forced to censor.
