The Romance of Lust: A Classic Victorian Erotic Novel
Format: Paperback|Change
Price:£7.17+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

This is a classic of its genre, one of the all time greats. Although towards the end of what was originally four volumes it does succumb to the commonest fault of the genre, that of turning towards a somewhat monotonous litany of permutations and combinations, it contains some of the most stimulating scenarios and situations. The tale concerns a well-endowed, precocious young man, educated at home by a young governess, with his two younger sisters. Two successive governesses fall under his spell, as do his sisters and several female visitors to their home, not to mention his mother. All his conquests are led to believe they are his earliest educators, which adds some amusement to what is hardly a boring plot. Judicious use of the birch is included, both educationally and for stimulus.

Very naughty, naughty, naughty. They say the pictures in your head are better when reading but beware the pictures are very steamy...and then as with all pornography tedium soon sets in then the book is permanently set aside !.

This book contains sex of all types including flagellation, incest and sodomy. Do not read if any of these offends you

I'm not sure whether this is a genuine Victorian piece of erotic literature, or a modern day take one one, but whatever, it is very effective and seductive and downright erotic. But then eroticism is in the eye of the beholder to misuse a cliche. However, I would certainly recommend this story to anyone who desires a little bit of imaginative text that goes well beyond innocent fumblings. More please.

Bought out of curiosity having notice that it had been digitized as part of the Gutenberg Project. It is extremely repetitive and only if you have an interest in the serial seduction of a young boy by mature women (and vice versa), with a goodly sprinkling of incest, should you trouble yourself with this. But then I'm no expert!!
