Philosophy in the Boudoir by Marquis de Sadehehe. Im such a naughty girl for picking this one up. I had watched the movie Quills and became terribly curious about Marquis de Sade. After the first 20 pages, I must say that my cup of interest was filled in its entirety, but I kept reading because the perversion of his writing was so unbelievable and even humorous. (I must state, that this novel is considered his most joyous writing... MOST of the sexual escapades in in violent deaths.) I couldnt believe that a man could have such a creatively dirty mind. My face was red when I bought it, but it was scarlett when I read it!
