It seems that the 1970s porno mag Screw used to assess porno movies on a four-erect-penises rating scale.

Adapting that scale to the novel here in question, I would easily bestow it four big hard ones. This, so far, is the only book I've read that kept me tumescent the entire way; literary Viagra of the first order.

If this is too much information then get back to the junior leagues, o' timid ones.

"Despite the fact that my sexual exercises are ordinarily as reserved and conservative as my language

Completely depraved, full of typoes, very sexy. Silly. Fun. Hot. Did I say it was hot? Yeah. It is.

I read this book in its Spanish version some years ago, shortly after discovering Pierre Louÿs and his extremely smart and funny Manuel De Civilité Pour Les Petites Filles à L'usage Des Maisons D'éducation.

As many other open-minded readers from our time, I guess, I was also openly shocked by almost every page of it. I didn't find it arousing at all, but I did find it mostly fascinating, sometimes too strong, other times kind of sweet and innocent, all of it depending on the point of view and th

A novelist is supposed to depict reality. If I am going to speak about a lady's erotic feeling, then it had better be as a woman feels. Well, this work feels like it is written by a schoolboy who just hit puberty and now is the time to chronicle is boyish fantasies and attribute them to ladies. This reminds me of Arabian Night where erotic works are written for the sole pleasure of male Arabs and as they understand sexuality, to no regard or consideration whatsoever for how it goes in a woman's ...more

Todo o texto parece obcecado por cenas de sexo explícitas, com absoluta preferência por situações sado-masoquistas, algumas das quais absolutamente nojentas.

Apparently, I first read in March 2010. No, that can't be right. This is when I gave it all these stars here... Actually I used to own a copy, maybe in 2008, but then I started lending it to friends, to friends' sisters, to their girlfriends. I kinda miss it.

Um livro antigo, erótico mas com um nível de devassidão sem qualquer pudor com vernáculo associado. Algo pesado, não é para qualquer um. É um livro bastante forte na linguagem.

Bien moins érotique que son Aphrodite. Décevant.

A dirty, dirty, dirty book. Not for those who are into some light erotica. This is some perverse stuff. NOT RECOMMENDED for light weights.
