A history of Oriental orgies; an account of erotic practices among the peoples of the East and Near East by James Cleugh( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The earliest beginnings of the orgy can be traced to religious rites practiced by the peoples of ancient Asia and Africa. Arising from the deepest religious sentiments, these practices were actually adoration rituals offered to the gods, in thanksgiving for the rebirth of plants, animals, and human beings. It was not until generations later that such private ceremonial services began to be regarded less seriously. This book is an entertaining and imaginative study summarizing the typical attitudes and rituals involved in sexual conduct of the non-Christian cultures of the world. Rivaling the Kama Sutra as a complete guide to the erotica of the East, this book is appealing not only to those students familiar with A Dream of the Red Chamber but also to the Westerner whose own practices are so strikingly different in almost all their physical and psychological processes. The deepest instincts of both sexes all over the world toward eroticism continue to be more openly admitted in non-Christian civilizations than in the West, and it is for this reason that Cleugh has confined his study to the Near and Far East, including Egypt, Turkey, Phoenicia, Persia, East India, China, and Japan. Cleugh, a graduate of St. Andrews University in Scotland, has lived in most of the countries in Europe, and also in Africa as a private tutor and journalist.--Adapted from dust jacket
After midnight by Irmgard Keun( Book )

4 editions published in 1938 in German and English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sanna and her ravishing friend Gerti would rather speak of love than politics, but in 1930s Frankfurt, politics cannot be escaped--even in the lady's bathroom. Crossing town one evening to meet up with Gerti's Jewish lover, a blockade cuts off the girls' path--it is the Furher in a motorcade procession, and the crowd goes mad striving to catch a glimpse of Hitler's raised "empty hand." Then the parade is over, and in the long hours after midnight Sanna and Gerti will face betrayal, death, and the heartbreaking reality of being young in an era devoid of innocence or romance. In 1937, German author Irmgard Keun had only recently fled Nazi Germany with her lover Joseph Roth when she wrote this slim, exquisite, and devastating book. It captures the unbearable tension, contradictions, and hysteria of pre-war Germany like no other novel. Yet even as it exposes human folly, the book exudes a hopeful humanism. It is full of humor and light, even as it describes the first moments of a nightmare. After Midnight is a masterpiece that deserves to be read and remembered anew"--
