More About This Book


Adults Only

"The Lustful Turk" is the sexy account of women being abducted and used in Turkish harems.

It was written before the Victorian period, in 1828, but was virtually unknown until the 1893 edition (which is how it gets into the Authentic Victorian Erotica series.)

The emphasis is on deflowering virgins. Spanking, naturally, is involved.

The Lord Chief Justice Campbell found it obscene when the publisher was prosecuted in 1857. Since the book would get a R rating, what would the Justice have thought of "The Pearl" 22 years later? Fortunately Campbell died in 1861; otherwise the excitement of the Victorian magazine might have given him a stroke.

"Turk" is unusual in Victoriana because, through a series of letters, we see the events from the viewpoints of many different participants—the women, the Turks, a side man.

But it’s also different because in the middle of this male fantasy—constantly accessible women who grow to forgive their captor because of the great sex—the captives get revenge. Twice. Is this an early example of women’s liberation literature?

The present edition has 7 modern illustrations and 26 notes explaining references or words.

Enjoy "The Lustful Turk."
