    antithesis Hello

    Has anyone else read this? Damn, I did not know that they wrote books like this in the 18th century. Talk about non-stop sex descriptions... Even some lesbian action and whipping and whatnot. You should all check it out.

    I saw the film once, it's really funny
    and quite explicit for the time

    antithesis Hello

    You shouldn't feel embarrassed about checking it out (after all, my friend had to read it for one of her English classes) but it's cool you found it on the web :)

    I personally bought the book so that I could reread it at my leisure.

    the old man in the beginning is gross

    antithesis Hello

    Yes, that part was gross, don't worry though, it gets much hotter after that.

    I hope so... does it pick up at all? because I don't like reading about timid uneducated little girls learning about sex, theres something creepy about that.... can you suggest a chapter that sort of reflects the writing of the rest of the book? so I can see how "hot" it gets? and this was written by a guy?

    antithesis Hello

    It was written by a guy, which is kind of weird. It picks up pretty quick actually, the beginning is a bit dull, but she first has sex really soon after the old man part and then it gets better. I can't think of a specific chapter and I dont' have my book handy. You could kind of skim through though.

    you know what I realized antithesis? this is so totally Quills! read some Marquis de sade... Sade is the basis for SADomasochism

    antithesis Hello

    That movie Quills was the friggin' most disturbing movie I've ever seen! I've never read his stuff though.

    Is Quills the movie where Johnny Depp is in a mental hospital?

    back on topic...
    I read a few pages from the web link, its seems interesting. I am always looking for new books to read, this might be my next one.

    And you shouldn't be embarrassed about buying a book like this, the person at the counter will not remember you at the end of the day.

    read fanny hill long time ago ..you have to take into context the era it was written in ........in victorian era ,the paddling of the bottom and subjucating of women was just as popular then as guys fantasizing about threesomes and anal sex today

    antithesis Hello

    I'm pretty sure that subjugating women is still in fashion today, it didn't go out of style after the victorian era. Anyway, I was being sarcastic about that book, I hated it in fact... sexist pigs.

    oh, p.s quills is with Rush as the marquis de sade, kate winslet is in it as well, and it gives a beautiful representation of Red france at the time.
