Nature alone.

The world, my dear boy, and by that I mean Society in general, condemns the practices we have lately been indulging in with you. Their narrow prejudices ignore the fact that nature alone prompts to these delightful acts, and that the great God of nature gifted us with the powers necessary for their performance.

But, as the world has chosen to brand them with its censure, men of prudence, like myself, whilst apparently conforming outwardly to such stupid prejudices, know how in secret to fully enjoy them.

I am blessed in your darling aunt with a wife who fully understands and humours my desires. She is rarely splendid in the glorious beauties of her body, and in temperament hot as the most erotic of our sex could desire.

Even in your ignorance you must have felt the wonderful power of conferring carnal ecstatic pleasure she possesses, and have heard how, in the energy of her passion, she allowed her lust to betray her into the use of grossly bawdy terms, but which, as they have enlightened you when best prepared to receive such knowledge, is rather fortunate than otherwise.

I speak thus frankly to you, my dear boy, because I have found you of a rare facility in giving and receiving erotic pleasures, and of a temperament worthy of the descent from the same stock as your aunt. You are worthy of each other, and formed to enjoy to the utmost each other’s carnal delights, and I bless my happy star that has brought you both under my own roof.

Henceforth there must be no secrets between us.

It was at my earnest wish that your aunt relieved you; and, of course I had my own object in view.

In the first place I require some extra excitement to be able myself to indulge in these delightful combats in love’s domain. You and your aunt’s copulations were to me more exciting than you can imagine.

You will have observed, too, what is the real quarter to which, when excited, I pay my devoirs. Glorious as is the backside of your incomparable aunt, your young charms, virgin in that respect, excited me still more. I began by gentle touches, and then tried the insertion of my finger, when I saw you were far too busy operating within the orbit of your lustful and lusty aunt to observe or even feel what I was doing. I found a facility about your bottom as perfect for enjoyment as your truly magnificent prick or cock was fitted for operating in its way.

It was then I suggested to your aunt to mount upon you, and afterwards made you aware that your aunt possessed another aperture which could equally well allay what you then looked upon as a source of pain.

My object was to lead you to the same point.

Your innocent docility lent itself with easy simplicity to all my desires. I saw that you entered readily into your aunt’s glorious bum-hole, and allowed me to work with two fingers in your own.

Finding that it rather gave you pleasure than otherwise, I proposed to abate my own stiffness in your bottom. Your affectionate docility enabled me to obtain unfailing ecstasy. Your after-fucking of me, while I was in my wife’s bottom, conferred the utmost erotic bliss upon me, as you have experienced when operating and being operated upon.

These — these are the moments of a felicity your stupid prejudiced worldlings know nothing of; and these are the pleasures which, now that we have initiated you into all their secret mysteries, we will enjoy to the utmost.


Excerpted from The Romance of Lust, Vol. III.

What strikes me most about this work is that everyone is so polite, and of such good sport in their love games. There is kindness, a sense of play, of discovery — even in the presentation of so many taboos.

In this section, I was particularly interested in the commentary of how society regards sex, and the position that such a range of desires and pleasures is — on the contrary — quite natural and an expression of God.

“[N]ature alone prompts to these delightful acts, and that the great God of nature gifted us with the powers necessary for their performance.”

God of nature, of all living beings, is the source of such inspiration and desire. And we have, also, been gifted by God with the powers necessary to live them out.
