Les Onze Mille Verges

Top 10 Sexy Books


Depravity alert! Les Onze Milles Verges is one of the strangest books we've ever come across. Written in 1907 by Guillaume Apollinaire, one of France's favorite literary sons, it is pornography sans pareil, putting to shame even some of Marquis de Sade's most sadistic works. In fact, Apollinaire did dream of becoming the Marquis' worthy successor of letters. Les Onze Milles Verges tells the story of count Vibescu Mony, whose excesses cover every sexual variation under the sun, from necrophilia to ondinism to S&M to vampires (not the Bella/Edward kind, though). Admittedly, it's not the kind of romantic book that gets dames dreaming of tall, dark and handsome strangers doing seductive things. But as a, albeit obscene, work on the subject of sex, it's an intruiging read for any serious collector of the world's eminent erotica, and thus it earned a spot on this list.
