Owning our desires should be neither embarrassing nor uncomfortable. Nor should they be subject to anyone else’s moral judgment of what is right or wrong, good or bad, normal or abnormal. Combining communication and information is the key. By shrugging off the taboos against talking about our preferences and experiences when we’re being sexual, we will take the first and most important steps toward ensuring our own fulfillment.
The Ultimate Guide to Orgasm for Women is an unflinchingly honest, responsible, and thoroughly comprehensive exploration of female sexuality. Topics include: The physical types of orgasm, such as electrical, flying, pounding, deep, waves, and blips; orgasm as an emotional release; the “elusive orgasm” and why some women have difficulty having one; how often we fake them and why; masturbation; multiple orgasms; the male-female dichotomy; penetration and the G-spot; defining the erotic; and the joy of sex toys.

Torture Me! A Dark Depraved Tale of Sin and Sex in the Garden of Evil Ecstasy is a deliciously disturbing erotic novel, recognised as a cult classic of Sadomasochism. The portrayal of ancient methods of torture as an art form — is both beautiful and horrifically shocking.
The story begins with a philosophical discussion about the role of murder in society. Many of the ideas are confronting and unpopular, but potent with the horrible truth of human nature behind them. The writer, Octave Mirbeau, (an atheist and anarchist) constantly challenges the reader through out the novel — with his scathing view of humanity, the hypocrisy, corruption, evil of the world and human condition. He explores the dual nature of life — love is death, beauty is pain, and torture is ecstasy.
This is the twisted tale of a young Frenchman (a corrupted politician) who meets the beautiful (on the outside) aristocratic Clara, who invites him to China. Clara has a fetishistic desire of death and torture — she sees it as beautiful and wildly sexually arousing. She seduces the Frenchman with her wicked enchanting web and takes him to the Torture Garden. This is an unreal place of beauty and death, which grows amazing exotic flowers in soil fertile from the blood and bones of the executed. The man wants to leave but is too weak, he is captivated by Clara’s physical beauty but is sickened her dark nature. He begins to see the ‘civilised’ world as a thinly disguised veil of the Torture Garden (thus the garden serves as an allegory to the brutal, cruel tendencies of humanity and corrupt decay of the modern world).
Sexually explicit, with hardcore sexual torture, violence and bondage – this book shocked the world when first published 100 years ago. Intelligently written, with great artistic and philosophical merit, Torture Me! is an unique experience — intended to both arouse and disturb.
This Kindle version is beautifully illustrated with unique vintage erotica pictures.

The Golden Lotus Love Pagoda (Jin Ping Mei) is a classic work of Chinese eroticism. Composed during the late Ming Dynasty (1600’s), this famous erotic novel was forbidden and banned for hundreds of years due to its graphic sexually explicit nature. It has become a highly recognised and regarded work of Chinese erotic literature, as Fanny Hill, Lady Chatterley’s Lover and The Decameron are to the Western world.
This epic erotic novel is a fictional account of harem life during the Sung dynasty (AD 1101-26). It follows the life of Hsi-Men Ching, a corrupt wealthy man living a lustful life of debauchery with his six wives and concubines. When he meets a beautiful married woman, Golden Lotus (Chin P’ing Mei) he schemes to kill her husband, then seduces and marries her. This act ultimately brings about his downfall — and that of his clan, as the women within his harem struggle for prestige and influence.
This Kindle digital book is beautifully illustrated with unique vintage erotic art and has a linked table of contents. Also included are three excellent essays on The Art of Sex – On the biological and cultural evolution of human sexuality and how we can use this knowledge to enhance our sexual relationships.
