Emmanuelle s sensual pleasures 2015 online
This now classic book of erotica is, alongside Story of O, the most famous French underground novel of the late twentieth century and a work of seductive literary merit.
Written by the wife of a diplomat in the French Foreign Service, it takes the form of an autobiographical novel, which it may or may not be.
Lot of very interesting philosophical insights, perhaps a bit too much sex, that kind of thing. Then she met dull, creepy, manipulative Mario, and we got started on the philosophy. I tried several t I could easily write a cop-out, only-read-Playboy-for-the-stories type of review here. I wolfed down the first two-thirds of this book, which consist of one juicy sex scene after another. Arsan is clearly not stupid (she originally wanted to be an astronomer - I did too! She just happens to be much better at writing about sex than philosophy.
Lot of very interesting philosophical insights, perhaps a bit too much sex, that kind of thing. Then she met dull, creepy, manipulative Mario, and we got started on the philosophy. I tried several times to read further, but I just couldn't do it. But she seemed to have put a lot of work into the philosophy, and it was terrible that I didn't even read that part of the book.
The sex scenes and most of the first half of this book are just great, with that subtle prose that one gets fro Classic Smut review!
Half erotic memoir and half philosophical treatise on eroticism, this book is a quasi-autobiographical account of Emmanuelle Arsan's(pen name of Marayat Rollet-Andriane) sexual adventures in Thailand as a diplomat's wife.
I found it in my Fathers closet..among other things *grin* I know.it was my Dad but trust me when I say all I had to do was open the book to forget.Spawning two offical sequels and numerous knockoffs, most notably the "Black Emanuelle" films, which starred Eurasian beauty Laura Gemser, who in reality looked a lot more like Emmanuelle Arsan than Kristel.
