Erotica 11

Who’s Coming to Dinner, the racially revolutionary In the Heat of the Night which catapulted Sidney Poitier to star status, and finally Doctor Dolittle which cost huge sums and was a huge flop for 20th Century Fox. Mark Harris traces the stories of each of these five movies from their inception as early as 1963 to the night when the verdict was delivered. Disney had tried to get hold of Dolittle for years but was not prepared to pay a competitive price. Bonnie and Clyde benefitted hugely from the superb editing of Dede Allen in the style of French New Wave cinema. In the Heat of the Night on the page was a far cry from Poitier’s sophisticated and assertive role on screen. So which movie won? 490pp, photos.

Williams by Christopher Stevens Kenneth Williams - everything about him, from his gift for comedy, writing and comic and serious acting to the way he lead his personal life could not have come from any other country in the world but England, and even today, over 20 years since his death on 15 April 1988, he is still much loved, quoted, parodied and the source of controversy. He was also a peerless raconteur, top of the list of any chat show host’s guest list, and could effortlessly hold a TV or theatre audience spellbound with his delivery, by turns manic and melancholy, shrieking and sombre. With exclusive interviews with some of his closest friends such as Barbara Windsor, Stanley Baxter and Michael Parkinson. Photos, 438pp, paperback.

69318 ASIAN APHRODISIACS by Jerry Hopkins

In traditional Chinese medicine, the whole plant is used of the beloved Lotus which represents in Buddhism purity, eternal life and spiritual enlightenment. The roots for haemostatic and astringent effect, the large round leaves for heat relief and headache, the stamen as an astringent and remedy for

premature ejaculation, the seeds as a mild aphrodisiac. It is said that the blossom is a symbol of the ‘cosmic vagina’. A lovely thought! Author Jerry Hopkins ‘road tests’ dozens of Asia’s most popular aphrodisiacs and surveys the best and worst ‘turn-ons’. Tiger penis soup? Rhino horn on the oyster half shell? He looks at potions, sex toys, aromatherapy, music, massage, belief systems and pornography as he travels from his home in Bangkok to Tokyo, Jakarta, Hong Kong and Kathmandu. He discovers that Asia was the first in developing breast and penis enhancement surgery and has been and still is in the lead when it comes to the promise of sexual excitement. 254pp in paperback with colour photos.

69126 WHY WOMEN HAVE SEX by Cindy Meston and David Buss

“Would you have sex with Robert Redford for a million dollars?” “Yes, but I’d need time to raise the cash” is an old joke, but it illustrates the unpredictability in women’s sexual behaviour. In this interesting survey Meston and Buss draw on research conducted by the Meston Sexual Psychophysiology Lab to ask questions about the relationship

between genital and psychological arousal, the effect of traumatic early sexual experiences, the impact of cigarettes and other drugs, including the side effects of anti-depressants, and the impact of having sexual intercourse on overall sex drive. These days the measurement of physiological responses may involve thermal and magnetic resonance imaging as well as interviews and questionnaires. The authors use the whole range of methods to test theories about the way sexual responses have developed over time in response to the evolutionary effect of competition and selection. They examine patterns of behaviour prompted by competition, for instance ways of dealing with a sexual threat, and behaviour associated with poaching a mate or trading up. Among young women who reject the concept of “Mr. Right”, the one night stand or “friend- with-benefits” relationship is common. Coercion of various kinds is also an issue addressed by the authors. 306pp, paperback. £12.99 NOW £4.50

65372 AMERICA SWINGS by Naomi Harris A startling photographic account of American swinging, the wife-swapping, gangbanging, all-hang-outing kind. Published by Taschen, with text in English, French and German, this heavyweight volume is the result of five years (2003 to 2008) spent taking part in and photographing the surprisingly popular US swinging scene, at 38 different events, from California to New Jersey and Minnesota to Texas. On this evidence, it would appear that married couples engaging in consensual extra-marital sex is the fastest growing pastime in the US, with estimates - figures courtesy of the North American Swing Club Association - of couples who have indulged at least the once as high as 15%! US swingers tend to be middle or upper-middle class, between 35-55 years old, better educated than average, Caucasian, the product of religious Christian homes, less jealous than most and liberal only in their attitudes toward sex. There is not a face here without a smile. 256pp, 12½”×10" with some very explicit 200 photos. U.K. delivery only. ONLY £26


1989 BOX SET edited by Dian Hanson What distinguished Swedish publication Private, the world’s first sexually explicit magazine? Female lust. After 20 years of photographing mostly amateur models, publisher Berth Milton came to believe that females were more sexually ravenous than males.

66748 THREE WOMEN by March Hastings Archetypal lesbian pulp fiction from the 1950s. Unconventional, even immoral behaviour is certainly not rare in Manhattan art circles.

66935 LA PETITE MORT by Will Santillo and Dian Hanson The title means “the little death,” a euphemism for orgasm, but the women who exuberantly masturbate for Toronto photographer Will Santillo in this book are as lively a bunch as you’ll ever meet. Santillo conceived the project to include a thorough cross section of women: young to old, slim to thick, perfect beauties to those not considered beautiful until seen through his lens. The one constant would be that each would decide and direct how she masturbated to climax while he captured the moment. He set out to reveal the diversity and creativity with which women approach self-stimulation, and to portray the beauty of ordinary women in the throes of orgasm - a beauty far richer than the male oriented depictions seen in pornography. Dian Hanson interviewed 37 of the women, and their candid insights on overcoming inhibition, giving in to exhibitionism, and achieving orgasm in front of a stranger with a camera provide a framework for the lush, sepia-toned photos. 8" x 11½”, 208 pages. For adults only. Text in English, French and German. ONLY £28

Agent Provocateur is the best known lingerie brand in the UK and possibly the world, and this is not only because of their exquisite, sensual products. The AP promotional people are quite simply a country mile ahead of the pack, and this collaboration goes to show just why. “That was such a strange dream…” and so begins the relationship between Miss X (the model Kate Moss) and the camera of renowned film director Mike Figgis. Miss X relates four dreams, and Figgis follows her around as she replays them around a darkened house - in bed, in a gilded armchair, on the edge of a table and just in front of a mirror. And, naturally, throughout she is clad in the most sensuous, sexy and (yes!) provocative of AP’s range of products, and the reader is the voyeur. Lusciously beautiful and exciting. Comes complete with a DVD film of the “Dreams”. 152pp, 9½” × 11", colour and b/w.

67985 THE EAST, THE WEST, AND SEX: A History of Erotic Encounters by Richard Bernstein

Marco Polo scandalized 14th century Europe with his account of the Beijing harem of the Mongol ruler Kublai Khan. 600 years later in Beijing, when the author was Chinese correspondent for Time magazine, erotic pleasure was regarded as counter-revolutionary because it put emphasis on private fun rather than the triumph of the proletariat. In this fascinating book Bernstein traces the seductive myth of the erotic east. A modern historian has provocatively commented that in the days of the British empire, colonialism “turned the whole world into the white man’s brothel”. The Victorian explorer Richard Burton, translator of the Thousand and One Nights, promoted the myth of eastern sexual connoisseurship, and the Ottoman empire also exerted its fascination, with Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, feminist wife to the ambassador in Constantinople in the early 19th century, writing an account of Turkish sexual practices which presented the inmates of harems as enjoying a freedom unheard-of in the west. A different kind of case history is that of Amy R., whose marriage broke up a couple of years after moving to Singapore. She explains that western men are attractive to Asian women because they represent

escape, while the women are soothing and non-combative, unlike their western

counterparts. A fascinating and frank history. 325pp, photos. $27.95 NOW £5

67559 JEALOUSY: The Other Life of Catherine M by Catherine Millet

Catherine Millet hit the literary headlines in 2002 with her bestselling The Sexual Life of Catherine M. A landmark book, it was portrait of a sex life lived without boundaries and without a safety net, and was remarkable for, among other things, the superhuman sangfroid of Millet and her partner Jacques Henric, with whom she had a very public and extremely active open relationship. Jealousy details the crisis provoked by the discovery of Jacques’s infidelity and her attempts to reconcile this with her need for sexual freedom and liberation. If the first book appeared to completely disregard emotion, then this is its diametric opposite - the paradoxical confession of a libertine who discovers that love, in any of its forms, can have a dark side, and that you can never be fully prepared for what it can throw at you. Frequently sexually explicit. 185 roughcut pages. $23 NOW £3
