The short troubled lives of the Brontë sisters have become one of the great literary myths of all time. How was it possible that three women who have never had sex, had probably never been kissed, could write some of the most erotic literature of all time? And why should these plain, reclusive women, who lived in rural isolation, have invented such stories. What was it in their lives that compelled them to write with such passion and power?
The Lancashire Telegraph adds:

A drama club spokesman said: “The short, troubled lives of the Brontë sisters have become one of the great literary myths of all time.

“How was it possible that three women who had never had sex, and had probably never been kissed, could write some of the most erotic (?) literature of all time? And why should these plain, reclusive women, who lived in rural isolation, have invented such stories.”
Well, passionate indeed but... erotic... well, not really.
