This is a passable pastiche of Victorian erotica, but no more--and, if Victorian erotica is what you want, there's plenty of the real thing around. The sex is reasonably well done (and I concentrate on the sex because there isn't anything else--there's no story, for example, and no definable characters) but after a while it becomes a bit tedious. One thing that gave me problems was the relationship between a man and his daughter. Someone writing today, even when imitating the fiction of 100 years ago, has to bear in mind today's sensitivities and showing a man having sex in all three orifices with his daughter doesn't do that. To sum up, maybe the problem for me is that there's so much Victorian erotica around that a new offering has to offer something special, and this doesn't. It's amusing, though, and the author can write, so if this is your kind of thing, give it a go.
