Jou pu tuan : the prayer mat of flesh by Yu Li( Book )

17 editions published between 1963 and 1994 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the three hundred years since its initial publication, Li Yu's The Carnal Prayer Mat has been widely read in China, where it is recognized as a benchmark of erotic literature and currently enjoys the distinction of being a banned-in-Beijing classic. The story centers on Scholar Vesperus, a handsome orphan and student of Zen. Before taking his monastic vows, Vesperus embarks on a career of licentiousness. His adventures as hero of the boudoir, a champion of sex take both comic and calamitous turns, until eventually he attains enlightenment on the carnal prayer mat
