Fanny Hill, or Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure.

the Memoirs of Fanny Hill enjoyed prolonged underground success in both Great Britain and the United States as what is considered the first English-language work of erotica. Readers of classics accustomed to vague and mysteriously worded romantic encounters will be delightfully stimulated by innumerable eye-popping sex scenes in this infamous novel. The graphic detail and frequent delight in physical pleasures expressed by the characters make for a unique reading experience amid the lavish writing style of the 18th century. First penned in 1748 by John Cleland while serving in an English debtors' prison, his erotic novel no doubt relieved the aching loneliness of his incarceration. The subsequent publication of Fanny Hill brought inevitable banning for obscenity that was not overturned until court cases in the 1960s and 1970s. But obscenity laws in both Great Britain and the United States did little to subdue public passion for the forbidden ecstasies of this erotic novel.
