La Nuit dans un harem maure est un roman libertin anglais du XIXè siècle. Sans doute pour ménager sa réputation, l'auteur a pris soin de dérober au public sa véritable identité. Il raconte un capitaine britannique naviguant sur l'Océan, ennuyé des devoirs et des fatigues à laquelle sa condition de marin le destine, rêvant aux plaisirs que la nature a placés dans la perpétuation de l'espèce, et que l’âme sublime par l’amour et l'imagination.

This is a very filthy book. Its typical of old erotica in that the men are endlessly virile and the women baudy and voluptuous even if initially reluctant. Its rather well-written and if you enjoyed Fanny Hill, you will like this too.

An English sailor washes up on the coast of Morocco and finds sanctuary in a harem. He convinces each of the concubines to tell their stories of debauchery before diddling them all. Typical Victorian porn to be honest. The author didn't seem to know any other words beside crest for penis and sheath for vagina and I really didn't want to hear about sperm being balmy.

Best leuk maar je merkt wel dat het meer dan 100 jaar geleden geschreven is.
Bedoeld als harde porno (alles wordt expliciet beschreven) maar leest als een keukenromannetje.
Onbegrijpelijk dat dit in New York gedurende 75 jaar verboden was en dat mensen in de gevangenis vlogen omdat ze het verkochten.

The book overall was repetitive and uneven. Only a few of the stories at the end captured my attention, but at the time it was written and released, I can understand why it was scandalous.

I fairly enjoyed it, I didn't find the language outdated, annoying, or a turn-off.
