Gamiani – Wikipedia
I thought that I had seen it all when it came to historical erotica: A poet, playwright, and novelist, he was also a sensitive and physically fragile young man who obsessed over the outrageous authoress George Sand, a woman known for collecting sensitive and physically fragile young artists. To his dismay, their affair went nowhere, and he decided to use all those pent up passions writing erotic fiction.
He is not disappointed as Gamiani soon comes up with the shy fifteen-year old Fanny and proceeds to debauch her. Naturally, Alcide mussrt discards his hiding place and literally dives into the action.

Equally naturally, as the book is written by an unsatisfied man, Fanny is bisexual and Gamiani is aroused by Alcide, even as she hates him. The three tell erotic stories in between mindless and violent couplings. The evening climaxes aha!
Fanny, however, has had a taste of something both delicious and reprehensible and cannot be satisfied by a more sedate life with Alcide. Alcide, ever the Peeping Tom, watches again from a hole in the wall.
Scorn and skepticism, complacency and amusement, suspicion and disdain… all lie within its purview. As erotica, however, the book failed, even though it bursts at its seams with threesomes, domination, bestiality, dildoes, and orgies.
Rather, de Musset draws a powerful but intensely unsettling picture of disillusionment with the power of love to provide meaning for sexual desire. Although Gamiani is deftly translated and nicely packaged, I found it distasteful and disturbing rather than arousing.
If you are in the mood for truly erotic historical fare, then you should be aware that classics of the genre such as Fanny HillThe Pearland My Secret Life are all in the public domain and online.
