Trivia
Although the word "fanny" is nowadays widely used as British slang for the female genitals, and has been since the 19th century, this connotation was unknown at the time when John Cleland wrote his novel. Consequently, lines such as Mrs Coles's "Be gentle with my little Fanny, sir" would not have been seen as double-entendres.

Goofs

Quotes
Mrs. Coles: The young man I have in mind for you is as sweet and fresh as a little lamb. He has been privately tutored in the country - hardly laid eyes on a girl. But now his father has decided it's time he "completed his education". He wants a young, fresh country girl for his son's first time. Do you think you could play the part?

Mrs. Coles: Think of it as a temporary strategem. Spend a little time on your back to get back on your feet, so to speak.

Mrs. Brown: We're going to leave you a while with Mr. Crofts, Fanny. You be sure to entertain him prettily. Can you do that for me, Fanny?
