My Secret Life, Volumes I. to III. 1888 Edition   By:

Book cover

In "My Secret Life, Volumes I. to III.," the author takes us on a voyeuristic journey through their various sexual encounters and erotic experiences. This controversial book by Anonymous, originally published in 1888, pushes the boundaries of social norms with its explicit content and provocative storytelling.

Set in Victorian England, the author recounts their secretive adventures and explores an underworld of sexuality rarely discussed or acknowledged in polite society. What makes this book particularly intriguing is the level of detail provided, leaving no stone unturned in describing explicit encounters and intimate relations.

While the content may shock some readers due to its graphic nature, it offers a unique insight into the sexual desires and practices of the time. The anonymous author leaves nothing to the imagination, painting a vivid picture of their encounters, from clandestine affairs to BDSM relationships and everything in between.

However, "My Secret Life" is not just an exploration of carnal desires; it also provides a glimpse into the societal constraints and hypocrisies of the era. Through the author's encounters with people from various social classes, readers are exposed to the hidden lives of individuals who outwardly conform to societal norms but engage in secret, often taboo, sexual acts.

It is important to note that this edition was originally published anonymously, and the identity of the author remains a mystery to this day. Some argue that this adds to the allure of the book, allowing the reader to immerse themselves fully in the scandalous tales without being distracted by the author's reputation or biases.

While the explicit nature of "My Secret Life" may not be suitable for all readers, it is undeniably an important historical document. It offers a candid portrayal of sexual activities and desires during a time when such discussions were frowned upon. Moreover, it sheds light on the inherent complexity of human sexuality, reminding us that these desires and experiences have always been a part of our shared history.

In conclusion, "My Secret Life, Volumes I. to III." provides an unapologetic and detailed account of anonymous sexual encounters in Victorian England. It challenges societal norms and offers a window into a world that was carefully hidden from public view. Whether viewed as an erotic novel, a historical artifact, or a scandalous tell-all, this edition remains a fascinating read for those interested in the intricacies of human desire and the sexual dynamics of the past.

Take care of, but don't open this he said: if I get better, return it to me, if I die, let no mortal eye but yours see it, and burn it.

His widow died a year after him. I had well nigh forgoten this packet which I had had full three years, when looking for some title deeds I came cross it, and opened it, as it was my duty to do. Its contents astonished me. The more I read it, the more marvellous it seemed. I pondered long on the meaning of his instructions when he gave it to me, and kept the manuscript some years, hesitating what to do with it.

At length I came to the conclusion knowing his idiosyncracy well, that his fear was only lest any one should know who the writer was; and feeling that it would be sinful to destroy such a history, I copied the manuscript and destroyed the original... Continue reading book >>
