There is a strong English tradition of late Victorian/Edwardian erotic writing, and it has stimulated a more modern tradition of copying the style. The Dashwood series comes into this category, with just enough modern style and anachronisms to distinguish it from the original. Given the titillatory purpose of the genre, this is not necessarily a fault, as much of the original literature is perfunctory and repetitive. This book avoids these excesses. It catalogues the amatory escapades of Dashwood and his chums, male and female, which are vigorous and frequent, involving not only the principal participants but also an assortment of servants and the occasional parent. It is set at Oxford University and at various country seats. This story does not involve any of the playful (or otherwise) chastisement that often enlivens this genre, and it cannot be said to involve any significant plot, although it does occasionally hint at one. A reasonable example of the genre, well peppered with salaciousness.
