Erotic Stories

Erotic Stories is a treasury of amorous tales from around the world, ranging from ancient Greek myths to modern stories of longing and lust.

From the innocent yearning of Daphnis and Chloe evoked by Longus to the sadomasochism of Pauline Rages Story of O, this anthology explores human desire across the ages in all its dark complexity. Whether intensely raw or subtly insinuating, the short stories gathered hereby writers as different as Boccaccio and Chekhov, Anas Nin and Allan Gurganusare calculated to unsettle and arouse. Here too are scenes from such classic novels as Choderlos de Lacloss Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Nicholson Bakers The Fermata, from Junichiro Tanizakis The Key and Sarah Waterss Tipping the Velvet. Accounts of ardor and transgression also flow from unexpected pens: an astonishingly explicit scene from Edith Whartons unfinished Beatrice Palmato, for example, and Guy de Maupassants heated Idyll, which describes a young peasant woman offering her breast to a starving stranger on a train.

Hunger is the fierce undercurrent to these tales: the gnawing lust of one lover for another, or the greedy pursuit of a particular inclination. The elegant depravity of an eighteenth-century French aristocrat, the dreamlike seductions of an Egyptian jinni in the form of a snake, the brutal anonymity of a highway truck-stop encounterthe stories in this richly varied collection reveal that the urge to articulate sexual desire is as inventive as it is timeless.
