This chapter discusses how far sexual behaviour changed in the sixties. A more educated population, access to a wider range of information sources, an increase in social mobility are important factors in the creation of a growing consensus that the Victorian attitudes were unnecessary in a modern society and constrained rather than enabled social, cultural and commercial life. The chapter further discusses the role and opportunities of women in jazz. British scene at the time is considered to have been highly unfriendly to women.
