Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure (popularly known
as Fanny Hill) is an erotic novel by John Cleland first published
in England in 1748. Written while the author was in debtor's prison in London,
it is considered "the first original English prose pornography, and the first
pornography to use the form of the novel." One of the most prosecuted and banned
books in history, it has become a synonym for obscenity
