“Dodi kijelentette, hogy végleg nálam marad. Másnap tőlem ment dolgozni, hozzám járt haza. Így volt két hétig. A felesége naponta telefonált, érdeklődött, hogy jól vagyunk-e, nem történt-e bajunk, szükségünk van-e valamire, meg ilyesmiket,és érdekes, a hangjában sosem éreztem gúnyt. Megnyugtattam, hogy ha Dodi egyszer el akar tőlem menni, csak hozzá fogom küldeni. Sehová máshová.
Később Dodi munkahelyére is telefonált, megvárta a hivatal előtt, ráküldött egy-két barátot. Egy délután aztán beállítottak hozzám mind a ketten és közölték, hogy ők hazapakolnak. Gondolom, valami nagy jelenetet vártak, de én erős voltam, és szótlanul kezdtem összerámolni Dodi holmiját. Ettől aztán ideges lett a fiú és megint a feleségét akarta elküldeni, mondván, hogy ezt a viselkedést nekünk kettőnknek kell tisztázni.
- Értsd meg – mondta a feleségének -,most négyszemközt kell maradnom Lilivel. Valamit tisztáznunk kell.
Megesküdött, hogy az asszony nyugodt lehet, velem ő már soha az életbe nem fog lefeküdni, de a feleség sem volt bolond.
- Én ezt a lakást nélküled nem hagyom el. Ha kell, itt alszom, itt ébredek, de nem maradsz vele kettesben. Ezt értsd meg – Leült a kanapé legbelső sarkába, és valóban ott ült másnap reggelig. Akkor aztán hazamentek.
Dodi még jött volna egy párszor, persze feleség nélkül, de nekem már elegem volt. Pedig szerettem. Úgy tudom, gyerekük született és vidékre költöztek.”

Ismeretlen szerző - Carnal Machines
The Victorians wrote some of the best and most enduring erotica. For such a tightly-laced age, people spent a lot of time thinking about things carnal. Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, et al enthralled us with their visions of new possibilities. The rich and slightly decadent visuals of the steam age lend themselves perfectly to the new carnality of post-punk era. And, of course, what is repressed will be even more exciting once the corset is unlaced. Steampunk, even without sex, is erotic; with sex, it’s over-the-top hot. A widowed lady engineer invents a small device that can store the energy from sexual frustration and convert it to electricity to help power a home. Teresa Noelle Roberts shows us what it can do, confronted with sexual fulfillment. What volume of steampunk would be complete without a tale of sailing ships and the men who sail them? If your taste runs to sexy pirates in space, Poe Von Page will delight you with the mutinous crew of the Danika Blue and their new captain. Then there’s the very special room on the top floor in the House of the Sable Locks, a brothel where sexually discriminating men go to have their fantasies fulfilled. Even if a man daren’t put those fantasies into words, Elizabeth Schechter’s “Succubus” will give the madam all the information she needs with which to make her clients happy. There are brothels, flying machines, steam-powered conveyances, manor houses, spiritualist societies. The following stories afford intelligently written, beautifully crafted glimpses into other worlds, where the _Carnal Machines_ won’t fail to seduce you, get you wet or make you hard so, lie back, relax; a happy ending is guaranteed.
Laurell K. Hamilton - A Kiss of Shadows
Laurell K. Hamilton revitalized vampires, werewolves, and zombies in the popular Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter books. In this new series, she updates faeries. A Kiss of Shadows introduces Merry Gentry, a.k.a. Meredith NicEssus, a faerie princess of the Unseelie Court, where politics is a blood sport. Merry, who's part sidhe (elvish), part brownie, and part human, never really fit in. She's short, not skilled in offensive magic, and mortal because of her human blood. These are real liabilities when your family, especially aunt Andais, Queen of Air and Darkness, is out to kill you. Merry has been in hiding for three years, living in Los Angeles and working for the Grey Detective Agency, which specializes in "supernatural problems, magical solutions." A new case sets her against a man who uses forbidden magic to seduce fey women and drain their power. A plan to trap him goes awry and Merry's cover is blown. Now Andais knows where she is. But things have changed in Andais's court, and Merry is changing too. Despite the selkies, brownies, goblins, and ogres in this book, it's not for children. The fey are "creatures of the senses"--and in the Unseelie court, sex and pain go together. Merry is sexually adventurous and surrounded by gorgeous, powerful males, most of whom want her badly. She's politically savvy and no coward, though she's not the warrior Anita is. Hamilton fans and readers of adult fairy tales like Anne Bishop's Black Jewels trilogy will want to give Merry a look. --Nona Vero
Giacomo Casanova - Korai és kései szerelmek
Vannak írók,akikről mindent tudni vélünk, még akkor is, ha soha egyetlen sorukat sem olvastuk. Seingalt lovag, azaz Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798) minden bizonnyal közéjük tartozik.A zseniális szélhámos, aki ugyanolyan otthonosan mozgott a cselédszobákban és a báltermekben, mint az apácazárdákban és a bordélyokban, szinte mitikus alakká vált: neve a gyönyörhajhász csábító szinonimája lett. A félig-meddig hamis legenda kialakulásában persze legalább akkora szerepe volt az olvasók képzeletének és a műveiből készült átköltéseknek, mint Casanova tudatos önstilizációjának és írói stratégiájának, noha saját írásai közül éppen az emlékiratait tartotta a legkevesebbre. A több ezer oldalas _Histoire de ma vie,_ amelynek megírásához öregen, unaloműzés gyanánt fogott hozzá, mégsem önarckép vagy szerelmi lajstrom csupán, hanem a XVIII. század emlékműve is. Egy korszaké,amelyben a galantéria, a játékos ármány, a könnyed fecsegés és az érzékiség életeszménnyé nemesült; egy olyan világé, amelynek Ámor, Fortuna és Bacchus voltak a védőszentjei. Casanova csakis ebben a világban léphetett színre, és bár alapvetőtörvényeit soha nem tagadta meg, szinte gyermeki gátlástalansággal hágott át minden konvenciót. A rokokó idill és a már-már természetellenes vitalitás mögött azonban felsejlenek az _ancien régime_ végnapjai,így Casanova frivol szellemét mindjobban átszínezi a melankólia. A sikeres kalandor kiöregedett nőcsábásszá válik: féltékenység kínozza, anyagi gondok nyomasztják, mesterkedéseivel pedig egyre ritkábban ér célt. Olykor már egyenesen arra vágyik: bár ne kellene többé szép nők után szaladgálnia. Könyvünk anyagát Kovács Ilona, az életmű világszerte elismert szakértője válogatta,azzal a céllal, hogy árnyaltabb képet alkothassunk Casanováról. Kötetünkben az önéletírás három, magyarul eddig nem olvasható fejezete kapott helyet: egy különös Pygmalion-variáció az ifjúság idejéből; egy megszenvedett hódítás története az érett férfikor éveiből; végül pedig a Donna Lucreziával folytatott viszony krónikája, amely a serdülő Casanova szerelmi beavatásaként vette kezdetét, hogy aztán egy nemzedékeken átívelő, élethosszig tartó kalandsorozat szülessen belőle. Összefűzi ezeket a történeteket,hogy minden különbségük ellenére is hasonló motívumokat mutatnak. A véletlen műve volna? Vagy a dramaturgia parancsa? Nem tudhatjuk biztosan, ám a kötetünkben is közölt kéziratvariánsok azt mutatják, hogy végső változatuk az eleven emlékezés és az életet újraíró fantázia játékából született.

Rigó Béla - Dévajságok
A művészet és az erotika mindig is szorosan összekapcsolódott a festészetben. Számos kép – a pornográfia határait súroló vagy éppen átlépő – készült jeles művészek műhelyében a XIX. században is. Elég Zichy Mihály nemrégen újból felfedezett rajzaira gondolnunk. Fendi akvarelljei egy teljesen eredeti nézőpontot képviselnek ebben a sokadalomban Ezek a képek tulajdonképpen nem erotikusak, hanem brutálisan zaftos kicsúfolásai a biedermeier esztétikának. Ha az inkriminált részeket valaki egy-egy képen lefedi, máris a legilledelmesebb társasági képben gyönyörködhet. Amilyenek annak idején nem csupán a polgári lakások falát lepték el, hanem a népszerű divatlapok mellékleteit is, mint például a Fendi halála évében induló Pesti Divatlapot. A görög szobroktól tökéletes anatómiát tanult mester óriásira növesztett és groteszk módon felfele pördített péniszű férfiúi, és a korízlésnél is vastagabb alfelű hölgyei elsősorban a jámbor szemlélőből kiváltandó álszent felháborodás kedvéért születtek, és persze azok kedvéért, akik az ilyen szemforgató erkölcsiségen mindig jókat tudnak nevetni. Ez a kötet is számukra készült. Értük született meg Susie Feinschmecker költőnőnek, Weöres Sándor Psychéje távoli rokonának rövid kis életműve is. Reméljük, nem hiába.
