Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, better known as Fanny Hill, is one of the most notorious texts in English literature.
As recently as 1963 an unexpurgated edition was the subject of a trial, yet in the eighteenth century John Cleland's open celebration of sexual enjoyment was a best selling novel.
Fanny's story, as she falls into prostitution and then rises to respectability, takes the form of a confession that is vividly coloured by copious and explicit physiological details of her carnal adventures.
The moral outrage that this has always provoked has only recently been countered by serious critical appraisal.
Cleland's highly entertaining book is a classic of erotica that holds a unique place in English fiction.

Having added this to my order mainly because of its bargain price, I was so pleasantly surprised when flicking through it in person for the first time.
Dotted with illustrations of sex in various positions and even a BDSM scenario or two, the written content of this pearl was an equally pleasant find. Never have I read such well detailed and delightfully descriptive erotica!
As someone who likes their erotica to get straight to the good stuff, I started reading convinced that the 200 pages of this must get boring at parts. Not at all! This kept to the subject of sex and desire at all times with no interruptions to the tales of lust (else than some quite naughty illustrations)
This is one book that has been read and re-read. Each time I find myself sucked in by its devilishly raw sex scenes. The memoirs of Fanny Hill never get old. (Posted on 10/08/2013)

I love this one! It's a gorgeous period-piece that's still a turn-on two hundred years after it was written.
It's really interesting for what it tells you about eighteenth century morals and sexualities. There's girl-girl, a little kink, and some true love, told in the voice of a young women whose sexuality develops in the couse of the book. Highly recommended. (Posted on 14/04/2009)

Sex Tip For Fanny Hill
A sneaky peek between the covers:
"Encouraged by this, her hands became extremely free, and wandered over my whole body, with touches, squeezes, pressures, that rather warmed and surprised me with their novelty, than either shocked or alarmed me..."
