Synopsis

“Why would anyone want to have sex with a corpse? Because it’s there. Because it’s different. Because you can. Because you’re curious. Because you don’t know until you try.”

The basic theme of Necrophilia Variations is that of necrophilia. Like Ronseal, this book does what it says on the packet. It is a collection of short chapter-esque stories that sometimes interlink all focussing on the taboo topic of sex with the dead.

Review

Honestly, I found this book all a bit stupid. It was like it tried to be shocking but then decided to that the best way to be shocking was to normalise the act of sex with cadavers and then become blasé, to throw the term and the action round. It almost tried too hard and lost momentum when the shock value wore off. I am not sure if this is because I approached the book expecting to be blown away by its forbidden subject matter and therefore was just numb to the often repetitive descriptions but it just didn’t live up to the promise that it could have held.

Admittedly, I did find the discussion in one of the later chapters rather amusing when the ectoplasm of a ghost was likened to spiritual lubricant – ‘sperm from the after world’. That was quite entertaining but overall the book just didn’t do it for me…which I suppose is a good thing given that the major theme within its pages is necrophilia. Quite frankly, it is two hundred pages of my life that I am never getting back.

Format: Paperback
A very amusing little book. It's a pity it uses American spellings which are vert annpying but it's still a vulgar little gem

HASH(0x8e1be924) out of 5 stars Thoughtful 24 Sept. 2012
By Uncurtailed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I bought this book after watching "Hysterical Literature: Session One" featuring Stoya on youtube. The written work seemed interesting and I had spare time to discover for myself.

Admittedly, with it's intimate investigation into the connections between eroticism and death I don't see it sitting well with most of the public. The short stories can be confronting, but I never found the work vulgar or grotesque.

Read this with your mind turned inward and you will be surprised, and maybe a little disgusted.

That's the fun of self discovery. Sometimes it's not fun at all.

Thanks Supervert.

HASH(0x8e1be978) out of 5 stars Surprised 1 April 2008

I was surprised by how well written this was...I can't quite explain why. I really enjoyed it. If you can get past the "taboo" subject matter (and I really hope you can) you'll find a well written, hilarious and sometimes even touching book here. Love love love.

I almost feel bad for having submitted such a badly written review. Oh well.

By MagStars - Published on Amazon.com

God...words can not describe how awesome this book is, I read the first few sample chapters and I was hooked, I had to read the rest, and Iam SO SO SO glad I got it, yes, it is about "doing the do, with the dead" but its so much more, it gives you a sickening inside look at what these people really think want, and love, I would suggest this book to any one in a heart beat!

HASH(0x8e4875ac) out of 5 stars not actually featuring necrophilia 8 Feb. 2015
By theBeNcHpReSs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well written, however rather light and fluffy (despite what you might expect from the title) . Many of the stories are simply idle ruminations on the themes of sex and death. Very few of the stories actually involve necrophilia. In fact (if I remember correctly) there is only one story that involves someone having sex with a corpse. Most of the stories involve sex and death but not actually at the same time. I was a little disappointed. I was hoping for something heavy, deep, horrific. As I said already - light and fluffy.

This book seems to have generated a surprsing amount of publicity about the internet but have a look around, there are plenty of more deserving works wallowing in obscurity.
