Don Winslow's Victorian Erotica
by Don Winslow
The English manor house is a place apart, a place of elegant living where in splendid isolation the gentry can freely indulge their passions for the outdoor sports of riding and hunting. Of course, there are those whose passions run toward "indoor sports" lascivious activities enthusiastically, if discreetly, pursued by lusty men and sensual women behind large and imposing stone walls of baronial splendor, where they are safely hidden from prying eyes. These privileged few believe that even though one might indulge in the most unspeakable perversions, proper decorum must always be maintained. A facade of respectability is essential, as even grand estates with names like Rosedale, Chetem, and Follingsea become hotbeds of hedonistic pleasures, unrestrained indulgence, and sheer sexual excess. These are tales of such licentious decadence from behind the walls of these stately houses of a bygone era.

Fanny Hill, Or, Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure (Modern Library Classics)
by John Cleland, Gary Gautier (Introduction)
Fanny Hill, shrouded in controversy for most of its more than 250-year life, and banned from publication in the United States until 1966, was once considered immoral and without literary merit, even earning its author a jail sentence for obscenity.

The tale of a naive young prostitute in bawdy eighteenth-century London who slowly rises to respectability, the novel - and its popularity - endured many bannings and critics, and today Fanny Hill is considered an important piece of political parody and sexual philosophy on par with French libertine novels.

This uncensored version is set from the 1749 edition and includes commentary by Charles Rembar, the lawyer who defended the novel in the 1966 U.S. Supreme Court case, and newly commissioned notes.

Governing Pleasures: Pornography and Social Change in England, 1815-1914
by Lisa Z. Sigel
How did concepts of sex and gender, race and class, home and empire develop in Victorian society? Lisa Z. Sigel charts the evolution of these ideas through the medium of pornography. Governing Pleasures details its production, distribution, and consumption in Great Britain between Waterloo and World War One. Rather than viewing pornography as a static phenomenon, Sigel examines how this medium changed over time to explore key questions: How did British society define pornography? Who had access to it? What did people make of its ideas? And how did these messages affect sexual and social dynamics? The author asserts that pornography offered people a way to make sense of sexuality and its relationship to the world during the transition of British society from an era of radical politics to one of consumer pleasures. Sigel vividly illustrates her arguments with literary and visual materials drawn from public and private collections. The Publisher.

Pearl: A Journal of Facetive and Voluptuous Reading
by James Jennings
Book Description Lewd, bawdy, and sensual, this cult classic is a collection of Victorian erotica that circulated in an underground magazine known as The Pearl from July 1879 to December 1880. Now dusted off and totally uncensored, the journal of voluptuous reading that titillated the eminent Victorians is reprinted in its entirety. The 18 issues of The Pearl are packed with short stories, naughty poems, ballads of sexual adventure, letters, limericks, jokes, gossip, and six serialized novels including "La Rose d'Amour," filled with inventive and exotic lovemaking scenes; "Miss Coote's Confession," with graphic descriptions of initiations into pleasure; and "Young Beginners," a collection of exuberant sexual adventures. Scatological and scandalous, The Pearl is definitely not for the straitlaced or pure of mind.
