The Erotic Book Club
Hosted by Robin and Fanny and held on the last Thursday of the month, The Erotic Book Club is a small gathering to devour and discuss the naughty masterpieces of literature. We shall be savouring both modern and classic filth, erotic fiction and personal memoirs, by male and female authors.
Reading: Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s ‘Venus In Furs’.
Initially published in 1870, the author defined and unwittingly gave his own name to that sexual proclivity we know as masochism, in this understated, charged erotic classic.
Future Books include:
Justine – Donatien Alphonse François de Sade, Marquis de Sade
The Life and Adventures of Miss Fanny Hill – John Cleland
Wetlands – Charlotte Roche
Delta of Venus – Anaïs Nin
Story of the Eye – Georges Bataille
In Bed With… – edited by Maggie Alderson, Imogen Edwards Jones and KathyLette
Lolita – Vladimir Nabokov
The Sexual Life of Catherine M – Catherine Millett
The Story of O – Pauline Réagen
