The Sexiest Books Ever

Updated on July 22, 2010

if you say books are boring, think again…they can be sexy... instead of indulging in demoralizing, non sensuous, cheap pornography, it’s time you get high with some real stuffs, straight from geniuses and surprise yourself with discovery of many unimagined facets of human sexualities.

The books mentioned below beautifully portray ‘the forbidden’. Challenging the conventional orthodox societies, all these books got controversial and forced people to think beyond the boundaries of society and religion. When we read these books, we find ourselves in different space and time, a zone which our psyche has never anticipated.

One of our authors, Murakami, said,” If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking." So try something different and think different…something that will knock your conditioned mind...

Lady Chatterley's Lover, a novel by D.H. Lawrence, was banned for almost thirty years after it was published in 1928. It’s a tale of an illicit sexual affair between a working-class man and an aristocratic woman. Controversies were as per expected for its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of (at the time) unprintable words. The f-word appears 30 times in this novel!

The story concerns a young married woman, Constance (Lady Chatterley), whose upper-class husband, Clifford Chatterley, has been paralyzed and rendered impotent. Her sexual frustration leads her into an affair with the gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors. This novel is all about mind vs. body, heartless showy aristocracy vs. raw sensual fulfillment. Sizzling!

Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov, was written in 1955. It’s included on Time’s 100 best English language novels. Only a writer of Nabokov’s genius and sensibility could write a book about a grown man’s obsession with a pre-teen girl and make it sensuous without it being creepy! The innovative style makes this infamous work a piece of art. A non-hypocritical exploration of human sexuality!

Tropic of Cancer ,by Henry Miller, was first published in 1934 in Paris. It faced obscenity trial in US after it was published there in 1961. Miller’s rambling and deeply graphic account of a youngster’s time in Paris is a work of enduring significance. Its casual treatment of sex released it from Victorian prudery. Though pulled in controversies for the frank and often graphic depiction of sex, the book is also widely regarded as an important masterpiece of 20th century literature. Time magazine included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, Haruki Murakami A low-key unemployed man, Toru Okada’s cat runs away! A chain of events follow that prove that his outwardly mundane boring life is much more complicated than it appears.Arguably the best work of Murakami’s impressive career, The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, had a ethereal quality that fuses realistic and fantastic tendencies. And it gets better when he writes about sex!
