The next 15 erotic books on your reading list

Hot on the heels of our must-see erotic films and books comes this collection of raunchy reads to freshen up your bookshelf. These books reflect the philosophy of Mucky Book Club – we love good books with mucky bits in them. Sometimes that means classic erotica, and sometimes great novels with steamy themes and fantasy settings.
