The Erotic Book Club

with one comment

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

Have a peek at the Bookake website  – east end publishers of Erotic Fiction.
You can order your books from them or from Donlon Books mail@donlonbooks.com

You have corrupted my imagination and inflamed my blood.
I am beginning to like the things you speak of!
