Product description

Product Description

A traditional source of sexual titillation for adult readers, fairy tales historically featured licentious themes before being cleaned up for the consumption of children in modern times. Seasoned erotica author Mitzi Szereto restores the explicit sex in the 15 tales in this provocative book — and adds a few surprises of her own. Here the bawdy humor of French fable meets the sublime eroticism of ancient Chinese myth as a far from virginal damsel weds a Prince Charming with a shoe fetish; Little Red Riding Hood discovers Grandma’s bed is open to any stray wolf; and a Japanese monk stumbles onto an S/M scene behind a forbidden door. Each tale is prefaced by a brief introduction telling its history and the sexual culture in which it was originally composed.

Very clever and well written. A new look at the tales from our youth. And yes, they are still bedtime stories.

2.0 out of 5 stars nothing erotic about it 31 March 2010

I was very disappointed in this book. I thought it would be titillating,romantic and erotic. It is not. The little mention of sex in the stories so so unappealing that it is just gross. Take for instance Cinderella's Prince proffering to stick his thing into the glass slippers and ignore her. Rapunzel raps obscenities and that is what turns on the woods man who climbs up to rub against her. Little Red Ridding Hood likes to flash the men at the construction site.
This book is stupid and a waste of time. I don't understand the people who graded this book with five stars. Makes me suspect that they work for the publisher or writer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disgusting content, bad writing, sloppy editing, and sexual assault. Shall I go on? 19 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on

At first I was annoyed by the poor quality of the book. Then I began to notice far more disturbing aspects of the book. Firstly, and not as importantly, nearly ALL the young ladies in question--and some of the men as well--were described as pale as alabaster, even those characters from the ARABIAN nights. Many of them had blonde hair and blue eyes as well, playing into the "only white girls are pretty" stereotype.

Secondly, and most importantly, this book was full of rape, sexual assault, and other acts of brutality. This book should come with a giant red trigger warning on it: from literal dungeons to impersonation in order to have sex, to peeping toms that girls are too intimidated by to turn away, to bestiality, to gang rape implied to be "good luck," to drunken or asleep or unwilling or unable women and men who are forced or coerced or tricked into having sex, this book really churned my stomach.

Add to that the the author has NO penchant for describing things appealing at all. If I have to hear one more line about "fleshy swellings" or "recklessly dancing protuberances," so help me...

Additionally, I found it ENTIRELY implausible and ridiculous to believe that apparently adult women and men would not recognize genitalia when they see it. Especially the handmaiden Czarina who thought that another woman's private area was literally a living, hissing monster. Excuse me, but if it's hissing, you need a doctor, not oral gratification.

This book was ridiculous, offensive, insensitive, AND poorly written. If I could give it no stars and a sarcastic slow clap, I would.
