The Pearl: A Book of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading (Paperback)
Travel into a world of debauchery and taste the forbidden fruits of the Victorian-era with The Pearl: A Book of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading.
Originally published in twenty volumes between 1879 and 1881, The Pearl: A Book of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading is a collection of poetry, prose and sketches taken from the original underground magazine, presented uncensored and in its entirety.
In, "Miss Coote's Confession," an elderly woman writes a series of letters reminiscing about her initiation into BDSM and lesbianism; "Lady Pokingham," recounts the life of a young woman sexuality corrupted by the lascivious Lord Crim-Con; "Sub-Umbra" follows the sexual awakening of young Annie in the presence of "She-Noodles"; and finally, "My Grandmother's Tale," details the brutal sexualized flogging of a Black slave girl, making it's mark as the first erotic story about American slavery. Filled with detailed scenes of orgies, fellatio, cunnilingus, masturbation, anal sex, and double penetration, these stories--among many others--lay bare a carnal feast of erotic pleasure for every taste.
With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Pearl: A Book of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading is a classic of erotic literature reimagined for modern readers.
