Phew! That was shorter than I thought. I stalled a couple times. OK – well it appears most of those are either books I read when I was 13 or books I read pretty recently, so make of that what you will.
I only included books I’d actually read, though I know there’s some sexy shit in Ulysses and Justine and dozens of others I haven’t gotten through yet (shame, shame).
So why don’t you share your favorites? And I will give you a link to Jack’s Naughty Bits on Nerve, so that you can fill in your literary gaps without having to trudge through all the boring parts. Happy Valentine’s Day!
