The Romance of Lust
The Romance of Lust, or Early Experiences is a Victorian erotic novel written anonymously in four volumes during the years 1873–1876. Quite who the authoris has never been determined. though the most likely candidate is the writer William Simpson Potter. But authorship notwithstanding, The Romance of Lust stands as a startling monument to the imaginatiev and varied sexualities of the Victorian era: orgies, masturbation, lesbianism, flagellation, fellatio, cunnilingus, gay sex, anal sex and double penetration are all to be found within its pages. If you ever imagined the 19th century as one of repression, prepare for a shock!
