Red Hot Books!

This category is most definitely for adults only.

We have a more specialised list than ever to offer discerning adult readers. Select from the categories or listings below...

Saucy Romps

In ones, twos, threes and orgies, here are bedroom antics, frolics and fantasies in the best of contemporary and historical settings.

Through the Keyhole

This really is what the butler saw. Voyeurism in the form of Reality TV is something we are today all guilty of and enjoy to a greater or lesser degree. A titillating collection.

Carnal Knowledge

From the ancient Sanskrit marriage manual the 'Kama Sutra' to the international bestseller 'The Penis: It's Performance, Enlargement and Training', here is socio-sexual posturing to sexual positioning.

Tongue in Cheek

Speaks for itself… what we find funny in the bedroom, bathroom, garden, in public and private places, vices and virtues, often in cartoon form or scribbles simply good for a giggle.

Collector's Library

Where a book is rather rare, of literary value, or in a limited edition, we at Curiosa have decided to categorise it as part of our Collector's Library. You may bag a rare find or simply enjoy the tactile feel of the binding from the following selections.

Male Order

Homo eroticism, and homosexuality, the appreciation of the male body, the male nude and artistic photography.

 

Femmes Fatales

Wicked, worldly women who just love the phrase "Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!" Lashings of stockings, high heels, long leather boots, PVC, corsetry and the female form in all its curvaceous beauty.

Flog 'Em

Sadistic, cruel, meek and mild, whippings and lashings, leather and lace, stilettos and stockings, flog 'em and see. May contain explicit depictions of sadomasochism.

Lascivious Lives

Historical and modern biographies where the content has a desirable attraction. Characters from George Melly to Casanova can grace our Internet pages as often as they like.

Lesbefriends

Girl on girl action.
