Blurb:
No critic of television has ever been more widely read, criticised and talked about than Mary Whitehouse.

In this book she recounts the experiences which have come to someone who is prepared to set no limit upon their commitment to society.

Anyone who is concerned about the importance of individual freedom and who cares about problems of social and sexual morality must read this revealing book.

Malcolm Muggeridge says of Mrs. Whitehouse . . . “She is one of the remarkable women of our time, and this account of herself provides an opportunity to know and understand her better.”

Paul Tabori – Erotic Victorian Fairy Tales

Posted by demonik on November 5, 2011

Paul Tabori – Erotic Victorian Fairy Tales  (NEL, 1971)

Blurb:
From the bawdy underground literature of a repressed era, some erotic gems that mock hypocrisy and uplift the Satyric spirit…

“The Chevalier remembered so well the lips, the velvety skin, the green of her eyes. And so he dreamt that night – a delicious wonderful dream in which she attended with sweet abandon to her bodice, her hoopskirt, her lacy petticoats and baptiste drawers, until finally her rosy purity shivered and burned in his arms. It was a prolonged and marvellous dream.”

PAUL TABORI is the wry and witty author of New English Library’s bestselling “Erotic Edwardian Fairy Tales” and “The First Time”.

Many thanks to Sarah of My Love Haunted Heart blog (again!)

Blurb
The never-before-told naked truth about fashion!

From the day man first put on the fig leaf to the era of the maxi-miniskirt, sex and fashion have become inextricably entwined.

Through the ages each item of dress – from corsets to stockings, boots to underwear – has its own history of abuse, romance, love – and lust.

In this unique studt, the author examines clothes both on and off the human body and comes up with a wealth of material, funny, outrageous, appalling and appealing.

Pault Tabori is an expert on sexology and the author of two other top-selling ‘bawdy histories’ TAKEN IN ADULTRY and SECRET AND FORBIDDEN.
