Philosophy in the Boudoir

( 2 )

Overview

Overview

"In the boudoir of a sequestered country house, a young virgin is ruthlessly schooled in evil. Indoctrinated by her amoral tutors in the ways of sexual perversion, fornication, murder, incest, atheism and complete self-gratification, she takes part with growing abandon in a series of violent erotic orgies which culminates with the flagellation and torture of her own mother - her final act of liberation." "Philosophy in the Boudoir is perhaps the most concise and representative text out of all the Marquis de Sade's works, containing his notorious doctrine of libertinage expounded in full, coupled with relentless bursts of savage, orgiastic eroticism, cruelty, and violent sexuality. The renegade philosophies put forward here would later rank amongst the main cornerstones of Andre Breton's Surrealist manifesto." This edition also includes a brand new, unexpurgated and explicit translation of a key episode from De Sade's infamous Juliette - "Minski the Cruel", a grotesque pornographic nightmare soaked in virgin blood.

    Galloping erotica confuted with heretical philosophy

    This book is a delightfully humorous admixture of lascivious sexuality and impious philosophy which flys at the face of the prevailing theosophical and ethical conventions of the time. It intermingles the sensations of bold and garish sexuality and absurdly discursive reasoning, relative to bawdy sexual practices but also to an animated iconoclasm, and elicits from the reader a couplet of humour and revulsion. A relatively light read for serious philosophers, yet enjoyable at multiple levels for the adventurous and open-minded reader.
