Tricks, techniques, turn-ons from the simple to the ornate, for men alone, couples and even with an added friend. Some may sound familiar, some (we're guessing) you've never heard of. - Maybe you've done everything, but... have you done it like this?
First published in 1748, this novel was one of the most notorious French erotic novels of the eighteenth century; and, despite its clandestine status, a bestseller. Among its admirers was the Marquis de Sade, who said (in his *Juliette*) that it was "alone to have achieved happy results from the combining of lust and impiety" and "finally gave us an idea of what an immoral book could be".
Cachet sends Rufus Rousseau to Paris on business. But what he finds is pleasure: the long-legged Luz, the seemingly innocent Gabrielle, the recently-divorced Magda. And on the list goes... It's the Eighties after all, a wilder but also more innocent time. It doesn't hurt that Rufus is living across from Notre Dame, making Paris itself is a character in this shamelessly explicit romp.
