As a bonus, there are three short but valuable essays on erotica, pornography, and censhorship
All in all, this is indispensable for those who enjoy erotica, and are broadminded enough to understand its essential role in a fully rounded life.

If you are at all interested in Classical Latin poetry, you might also find this amusing.
I would recommend it and I refer to it from time to time.
Strangely, this translation originally had the juicy bits rendered in Latin, but they're all here in good old plain if flowery and extremely creative English. I never have seen the love act described in so many different ways, to put it mildly. It may have been passed off as a cautionary tale (a la Lust, Caution), but the author obviously had a delicious time telling it.
The typography is another story, as it is littered with typos, but I had no trouble reading it. At first the story seemed a bit disjointed and abrupt, especially since the whole original lead-in has been lopped off, but once I got into I really liked it. Highly recommended for the unprudish.
