It has been rumored that the best libraries in Victorian England saved this tome less than lock and key, allowing entry purely to medical professionals and professors.

There are some who declare that this encyclopaedic treasure of erotic pleasures—still stunning today—would reason any girl who gazed upon it to faint. This ironic, tongue-in-cheek examine the naughty sexual practices of Victorian England is immediately hilarious and titillating, and as specific as ever, and comprises illustrations within the form of the time. With a layout that leaves a few puzzling over even if it isn’t certainly immediately out of the Eighteen Nineties, Curious Pleasures is as deliciously decadent because it as soon as may need been.
