In "The Wings of the Dove," a film based on a Henry

James novel, two of the characters make love outdoors while braced up

against a pillar in Venice. The novel is set earlier, but the film moves

the action up to about 1910. In what year, according to the society's best

thinking, did young ladies of the sort Henry James writes about begin to

participate in such practices?
