Hey, the "Victorian society" which I mentioned simply meant the era which the story was set in. This would be around the mid 1800's. Back then people behaved under strict moral codes. Emotions like intense anger, bad manners, overt sexuality....were frowned upon. For this reason Dr. Jekyll, usually mild mannered and rather "boring", wanted to indulge in his darker side. He wanted to feel the exhilaration of being bad in a society that demanded he be a gentleman at all times.
