Attention, ye plebes: I invite you to feast your eyes upon the fabled sex chair of yore, Edward VII of England’s sex chair, an “extraordinary” contraption that — in the words of historian Tracy Borman — “boggles” the mind. Looking like a strange cross between a chaise lounge and a bassinet and a gynecological exam table (only very plush), the “love chair” that formerly helped a girthy Prince of Wales maneuver himself into coital position now features in a forthcoming Smithsonian Channel series: Private Lives of the Monarchs, hosted by Borman. King Henry VIII and the Sun King will also make an appearance, but you came here to read about Bertie’s sex chair, so let’s get to it.

Dirty Bertie, the most Parisian of English kings Edward VII, aka Dirty Bertie, the most Parisian of English kings

Armistice Day: A Collection of Remembrance - Spark Interest and Educate Children about Historical Moments Hello Yellow - 80 Books to Help Children Nurture Good Mental Health and Support With Anxiety and Wellbeing - Edward liked the finer things in life, and he particularly liked the ladies. He would travel over to Paris on a regular basis, because that was the best place if you liked the ladies. They were a much freer society than Victorian London. Edward, as well as lots of women, liked his food, and he put on quite a lot of weight later in life. Now, there is a theory that this sex chair, as well as being just a bit kinky, frankly, was to sort of help him do the business, even though he was now quite large. The way in which it is structured has enabled him to remain standing and to access the lady on the chair, should we say, without his enormous belly getting in the way. Davies, Rebecca (12 August 2013). "Children's Book Blog: Ask the Illustrator – David Roberts". The Independent. Archived from the original on 12 August 2013 . Retrieved 17 February 2017. Today, Jezebel published an interview with Borman — as well as an exclusive sex chair clip, which I suggest you watch, so you can really get a feel for its craftsmanship — who described how Queen Victoria’s son would trot off to France to do “what the hell he likes” outside the eye of his infamously modest mother. “Dirty Bertie,” who eventually became King of England, conducted a truly staggering number of affairs, but his custom-made-and-measured chair resided in his preferred Parisian brothel. Borman explained:

When Bertie is watching TV, when his parents come in, announcing that they are moving house and that that's "good news". Bertie, however, doesn't want to move and even the promise of a long garden, a neighbouring park and a big bedroom for Suzy doesn't change his mind. He's even madder when his parents say that he'll be changing schools and making new friends and begins to argue with Suzy about the big bedroom. The Dirty Bertie character first appeared in two books penned by Roberts himself, Dirty Bertie in 2002 and Pooh! Is That You, Bertie? in 2004. Since then he has worked with Alan MacDonald to create a series for older readers with titles such as Burp, Fetch, Kiss and Pants. Books by Daren King and David Roberts at WorldCat – 15 titles including six German and one Catalan language editions. Retrieved 2015-04-14. His sister Lynn Roberts is also a writer and the siblings have collaborated on several retellings of fairy stories, including Rapunzel: A Groovy Fairy Tale, which was shortlisted for a Blue Peter Book Award, and Little Red: A Fizzingly Good Yarn, which was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

When they get there, Mr Weakly leads the boys to the men's toilet but it's closed, so they go into the cafe instead. Bertie, however, doesn't need to go so he sneaks off and play video games.

A wealthy family called the Riches show up, with their son, Bertie's rival Royston Rich. Royston says that he will win the sand castle building competition so Bertie and he make a bet on it.A week passes by and moving isn't mentioned, but then Bertie sees his house on the real estate. Darren and Eugene suggest that Bertie put off the people who want to buy his house. Despite their suggestions (telling them it's falling down, there are vampires next door, there's a body in the garden or it has fleas) not sounding very convincing, Bertie does think it's a good idea and makes a plan called Operation Booby Trap: Ten Ways to Not Sell a House. When he gets to the beach, he walks off without his parents but then notices that he's the only solo child and Royston's father is entering the contest too. This makes him angry. A woman who Bertie thinks looks like Miss Boot's ugly sister starts the competition and Bertie tries to use Whiffer as a model but Whiffer won't stand still and wants to dig too. His sand dog doesn't turn out so well but everyone else's sand sculptures are very fancy. When the contest ends, it starts to rain and Bertie keeps his sand dog dry with an umbrella, so he ends up winning and Royston throws a tantrum.
