Summary

The Wordsworth Erotica Collection includes some of
 
the finest Victorian and Edwardian examples of the genre.
 
 
About this book:
 
 
The Pearl was an extraordinary subterranean magazine that had a brief life of eighteen months in the years 1879 and 1880.  It was devoted to unrestrained erotica, comprising astonishing sexual escapades, jokes and bawdy rhymes.
 
 
This volume contains three of the novellas which were serialised in The Pearl.  Lady Pokingham; or They All Do It, Sub-Umbra; or Sport Among the She-Noodles and La Rose d’Amour;  or The Adventures of a Gentleman in Search of Pleasure are all classics of the genre, and throw a gaudy  light on the clandestine concerns of one section of Victorian society.

    The Golden Bowl is a 1904 novel by Henry James. Set in England, this complex, intense study of marriage and adultery completes what some critics have called the "major phase" of James' career. The Golden Bowl explores the tangle of interrelationships between a father and daughter and their respective spouses. The novel focuses deeply and almost exclusively on the consciousness of the central characters, with sometimes obsessive detail but also with powerful insight. (Summary by Wikipedia)

    The Victorians may have attempted to show the world they were upright, strict and full of virtue but much of this thinking has been subverted by their erotic and pornographic writing.  With a vast Empire to organise and rule Victorians authors also had a wealth of new locations in which to have their characters fornicate in their written erotic adventures.  These purveyors of erotic literature were no slouches when it came to getting their materials into the hands and minds of others.  They used one of the great tools of the day; the literary magazine.  Engagingly in the great tradition of literary magazines who serialised many wonderful books the Victorians had their own pornographic magazine which ran for eighteen monthly issues from July 1879 to December 1880.  That seems to be quite some enterprise when you consider just the business side of printing and distribution of it whilst one presumes the law was casting its beady eyes at you.  On the literary side it managed to print six serialised novels with La Rose D’amour or The Adventures of A Gentleman in Search of Pleasure being one of them as well as many short stories and a whole host of other minutiae including ballads, poems, limericks, jokes, witticisms, puns, ditties all in textures from refined to coarse.  This erotic novel details a wide range of sexual activities of the gentleman narrator from his loss of virginity to his wild escapades at regular orgies taking place at the La Rose D'amour.  La Rose D'amour is an opulently and provocatively decorated high class chateau for the creme de la creme of Paris society where both men and women indulge openly in sexual gratification with each other.  The author is enchanted by the place which prompts his embarking on creating other orgies around the world to meet his insatiable exotic sexual desires by way of numerous other conquests.  Probably not a good read for most women but could satisfy many a man's desires.

    Subtitled the Secret Diary of a Victorian Gentleman, this book was banned for being sexually explicit and pornographic but following its publication has become known as an erotic masterpiece. No one really knows the identity of the pleasure seeking author or what in this diary is fact or fiction but as an example of Victorian erotic fiction it is a convincing and compelling document.

    Gay for pay, hustling for the rent, that's what I do. The men who pay for my time are all different, but they all want the same thing; to have their deepest desires fulfilled.
     
    "Kramer" has a story to tell, but like my other customers, it only comes out in bits and pieces. I'm here to listen, and to give them what they can't find anywhere else. Like me, they choose what they want to share, if they share anything at all. Usually, they want it fast and rough. Other times, there's a story behind the call. Kramer wants more than to hit it and quit it, and I aim to please. He's been stuck in the closet his whole life, unable to be true to his desires. He wants what we all want; to get off. This is his story.
     
    My name is "Joe." I'm here to make your fantasies a reality. If you've got the cash, I've got the time. 
     
    This is a steamy short story meant for mature adults over the age of 18. All characters are consenting adults.
