This paper will investigate the cultural themes of sexuality, politics, and satire in the 1650s and how such men and their lives were both perceived and exploited by the press of the period. It will use the images of Scot and Henry Marten as Republican statesmen as instances of the use of sexual slander to both politically diminish and undermine the English Republican regime and will seek to assess the reality that lay behind the slanders in the biographies of these two men.
