The Best in Erotic Literature

Caracole by Edmund White, the erotic adventures of a country boy in a city of debauchery and seduction

In 2011, Fifty Shades of Grey launched a lust for erotica and spawned a thousand copycats. Today, it seems everyone from high school kids to soccer moms and grandmas is devouring sado-maso "lite" fiction and thinly-plotted bodice rippers. GAYOT’s top 10 list explores history's more literary examples of titillating writing, from fin de siecle smut to naughty novellas of the 1940s to ultra-graphic writings by France's most scandalous libertine. Our collection of sexy books runs the gamut from lyrical stylings to pretty prurient stuff that some are sure to find offensive. So read on if you dare!
