Tsk-tsk. These modern Civil War historians, only one thing on their minds, all the time.

It just shows people throughout history always desire sex. Always.

I believe Lewis Carroll took photos of Alice Lindell naked during the Civil War time period before her mother stopped letting him visit. So this is nothing new.
Soldiers always want sex, it helps take their mind off dying in battle. The one thing I never heard of, however, is soldiers getting porn in the Rev War.
