The Learning Commune
TLC was the nickname for one of the most feared places in Vioctorian England but it had nothing to do with tender loving care - more to do with punishment, including sexual means, of young women offenders - from which there was little hope of escape. More
It was nicknamed `The Learning Commune`, or TLC for short, and it was perhaps the most feared place in Victorian England apart from the gallows. It was the name frequently used in the poor houses, the female prisons and borstals to instil the kind of fear into the occupants of those institutions that would keep them in line with the rules of the authorities. The Learning Commune was also a highly secret place, run by a combination of various unaccountable authorities, and it was the place from which no one ever seemed to return.
That fact helped increase the fear factor in those threatened with the dreaded place, for no one was quite sure just what happened there until now.
Now the story of the punishment regime, which included sexual means, that went on in The Learning Commune is brought into the open for the first time.
TLC was its nickname but it had nothing to do with tender loving care - more to do with punishment, including sexual means, of young women offenders - from which there was little hope of escape.
