LOVE AMONG THE LIBERTINES

A COMING OF AGE. An arousing translation by Richard Robinson of a French libertine classic —naughty, romantic, edgy — a tale that digs below the naves of the 18th century “amphibious” world of sex and religion. Its hero, a young abbot, hones his secular skills and steals the “laurels” of sexual triumph from his choir of well-bred female trophies. A Coming of Age, originally La Morlière’s Ecclesiastical Laurels, unveils upper-society sexual shenanigans from out of the chapel and into the holy sanctuary of licentiousness and love.

This is No. 2 in the Pocket Erotica series from New Urge—compact (4 x 6-inch) perfect-bound  booklets that fit in your pocket or purse.

In order to do this, my dear, we must sleep together this evening; I will act like your husband, and you will act like my wife…”

The Secret of Geraniums

… at eighteen nothing, nothing could satisfy her. She had not yet felt happiness well from her own heart, but had to seek it in vain everywhere, in the hot sun flashing over concrete, where it lived in deep pools of water in the woods, and existed in other people’s eyes. Her longing at eighteen knew no bounds; she was secretive and lonely, dark and insatiable.

Rebecca’s friendship with Alluvia grows into an intense sexual relationship—complicated by her secret affair with Francis, Alluvia’s husband. Rebecca’s desire for both members of the estranged couple leads to a surprising culmination she could never have imagined.

Jessy Reine’s THE SECRET OF GERANIUMS is  a haunting and poetic short novel— a raw exploration of female sexuality.

“… written with Nin-esque eloquence, electric and breathless, delineating a dreamy, moony, earthy connection between physical ritual and sex. This short novel/novella brims with evocative imagery and a raw complexity of emotions; as Rebecca maps out her corporeal and erotic existence, the languorous memories and present moments alike are intertangled and suffused with a mid-coital glow.” — Elna Holst, author of Lucas

POCKET EROTICA BLASTS OFF!

We kick off July with the launch of this exciting  and collectible new series from our New Urge imprint: Pocket Erotica—featuring original translations  of classic and obscure works of erotic literature. Each volume is a compact 4 x 6-inch paperback  with  a distinctive uniform design.

Pocket Erotica No. 1 is now available worldwide on Amazon:  DON’T TOUCH by Anne-Gabriel Meusnier de Querlon, translated from the French by Richard Robinson. A fun, lively, contemporary translation of an 18th century French libertine novella with a narrative technique that drops the soutanes, lifts the wimples, and pushes the boundaries of the novel – 150 years ahead of its time. Erotic, sacrilegious, funny and infectious, it is the “amorous true story,” as told by herself, Saint Nitouche, a Carmelite Extern Nun, whose “taste for pleasure and vocation for retreat” bump up against each other in surprisingly modern and eternally scandalous ways in the convent and in the bawdy house. Still scandalous today,  it is like Thérèse Finds Happiness, but without the philosophy.

… desperate not to lose so beautiful a moment of passion, I was already employing the baluster in a way that was, perhaps, unknown to bishops and prelates; she was following along with my reasoning, I was about to give her a taste of its energy; &, in spite of the uncomfortableness of the position, I put forward the DEFINITIVE ARGUMENT: she was not without some distrust in its success, but I was going to destroy her disbelief. Already we were united to the extent of being one, alreadyI was insinuating myself adroitly into her… heart;… I had her half-way… persuaded, when the accursed chambermaid whom we certainly were not expecting, entered brusquely & surprised us; the marchioness was in a bit of a dubious position, & I was deploying my brilliant… state, covered in… glory; in such a state that, in a word, of all my honest readers and critics together, three quarters of them will be more envious of me than imitators….
