Top 10 Sexy Books

Opus Pistorum by Henry Miller

We had a hard time choosing the raunchiest Henry Miller book. From Sexus to Crazy Cock to Tropic of Cancer, the master of stream-of-consciousness free association candidly writes about sex in pretty much all of his major works. In the end we settled on his naughtiest creation: Opus Pistorum. This pornographic oeuvre is not for the faint of heart, containing explicit, misogynistic, and often scandalous and depraved passages. The adventures of Jean Jeudi (that's the nickname of the protagonist's "tool") originated as commissioned short stories Miller wrote in 1941, when he was low on cash and far from fame. Granted, this is not the kind of writing that turned Miller into one of the literary greats of the 20th century. But it's juicy, raw, often shocking even today, and not without literary merit, expressing Miller's wit and joie de vivre. The book is out of print, but you can get a used edition on amazon.
