Top five erotic novels

Top five erotic novels

IntroductionWhen I was in high school, I used to do my homework in the back corner of the library, hidden behind stacks of books. At first glance, it seemed like a pretty boring spot to study. But as an avid reader and writer myself, I felt at home there among all those words on the page. Eventually, though, I had to move on from high school—and so did my reading habits and favorite books. Now


50 shades of Grey by E.L James

You've probably heard of it. 50 Shades of Grey by E.L James is the first book in a trilogy that follows the relationship between a college student named Anastasia Steele and an older businessman named Christian Grey. It's a modern retelling of the classic novel Lady Chatterley's Lover, but with plenty of steamy sex scenes to keep things interesting. The first book was self-published before being picked up by Random House, who published all three instalments at once under their imprint Black Lace Books (hence why this book also falls into our erotica category). The trilogy has since been adapted into two feature films starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Ana and Christian respectively—and while they're not terrible movies per se, they do suffer from some pretty awkward dialogue at times (not unlike what you'd expect when adapting books).

Lady Chatterley's Lover by D.H Lawrence

Lady Chatterley's Lover was written in 1928 and first published in Italy, because it was banned in the UK and US. The book is a love story between Lady Constance Chatterley, a young married woman, and her gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. It's set in England during the 1920s—a time when many women had no say over their lives or bodies.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Lolita is a book that tells the story of a man who marries a woman to get closer to her 12-year-old daughter. The story is told from the perspective of the narrator, who is an unreliable narrator and one of his major character traits is his unreliability.

The novel was banned in France and the United Kingdom until after its author's death due to its subject matter: child sexual abuse and pedophilia.

Delta of Venus by Anais Nin

Anais Nin was a writer and artist. Delta of Venus is a collection of short stories about sexual relationships. The book was published in 1977 by Grafton Books, which is an imprint of the British publisher Collins. Delta of Venus was a bestseller, but it also caused some controversy because it contained explicit descriptions of sex acts and was banned by some American libraries for being pornographic. This does not seem to have mattered much, since Delta of Venus became one of the bestselling erotic novels ever written.

The Story of O by Anne Desclos

The Story of O is a classic erotic novel that was first published in 1954. The author, Anne Desclos, was a French journalist and novelist who wrote under the pseudonym, Pauline Réage. The book is an adaptation of one of Desclos' short stories from her collection "The Affairs of the Allusions."

O is about a beautiful young woman who submits to being trained as a sex slave for another man. The novel depicts O's journey as she becomes more and more deeply immersed in the world of domination, submission, and bondage. It has been translated into many languages since its original publication and has even been made into a movie!
