Naughty Victoriana: An Anthology of Victorian Erotica

When one thinks of the late 19th century, images of prim and proper women and stiff-upper-lipped gentlemen strolling down the street cane in hand comes to mind. What one does not realize is that while things may have been so in public, in private it was another story. The Victorians produced tons of erotic, or just plain pornographic, literature—much of which would shock even today’s audience. Spanking and incest were their favorite subjects, but anything was fair game.

Ten of the best and rarest of these novels are contained in this volume. In addition to that, there is one appendix, “A Brief History of Priapus.”

The entire collection is $3.99 and available at AmazonBarnes & Noble, and Kobo.  If you prefer, you can also buy directly from us via Payhip in all formats (.mobi, epub, and pdf).

Approx. 2,240 pages or 671,803 words long.
