Overview

The Romance of Lust, or Early Experiences is a Victorian erotic novel published anonymously in four volumes during the years 1873–1876 by William Lazenby. Henry Spencer Ashbee, bibliophile, bibliographer, merchant, and expert on the writer Cervantes, discusses this novel in one of his bibliographies of erotic literature. In addition the compilers of British Museum General Catalogue of Printed Books list this book.

The novel is told in first person, and the protagonist of the novel is Charlie Roberts. Charlie possesses a large penis, much virility, and a seemingly insatiable sexual appetite. The novel begins with “There were three of us — Mary, Eliza, and myself.” Charlie describes his sexual initiation as an adolescent — as he is “approaching fifteen”. He catalogs his sexual experiences including incest with his sisters Eliza and Mary, sex with his governesses, and his later sexual exploits with various male and female friends, and acquaintances. Besides incest, the book deals with a variety of sexual activities, including orgies, masturbation, lesbianism, flagellation, fellatio, cunnilingus, gay sex, anal sex, and double penetration. Taboo subjects such as homosexuality, incest, and pedophilia are common themes in the novel. - from Wikipedia

This book was over 1,000 pages and I couldn't hardly put it down. Definately erotica, so not for the faint of heart. Great value!

This book started out okay - especially if you're open minded and don't mind the taboo topics. This is definitely erotica, which I enjoy. However, after 500 pages of the same positions repeated over and over and over and over again I had to put it down. The only difference from scene to scene is the people involved and even then the main character is in 98% of them. So, repetitive, to say the least.

NOT boring. It may be repetitive...to those whose brain is boiled in turkey gravy. It's true that it involves one guy...but it's WHO he has sex with, and where, that makes it challenging, interesting, and hot!

Should have read the intro. Didn't realize this was gonna be so... foul. I knew it was erotica from Victorian times, not incestual. Needless to say, I stopped reading about 2 lines in. Wish I could get my money back. :( I gave it 1 *, because I had to give it something.

This is a book that should be removed from the website. It has very graphic scenes that are illegal in every state. It probably is illegal to own. I have deleted by down load since you could be arrested for positional.
