You might try Between Pit and Pedestal; Women in the Middle Ages by 
Mary Williams and Anne Echols 

there are two excellent books about Sexuality and Repression during the
Middle Ages
Love Locked Out by James Cleugh
Sex, Dissidence, and Damnation (Minority Groups in the Middle Ages) Jeffrey

Just a fun book to read to get some flavor is Uppity Women of Medieval
Times by 
Vicki Leon.

questions, like "If I stick this spear in you, can I take your stuff?",
"Do you have relatives that would be mad if I took your stuff?", and
"Can my relatives beat up your relatives?"
