About this deal

Glamour shorts were generally made by uncredited amateurs, but a few recognizable names crop up here and there.

No novel gets at the erotics of absence and despair quite like Djuna Barnes's decadent masterpiece Nightwood, the story of Nora Flood and her unfaithful lover, Robin Vote,” says Emre. and that's before we even skim the surface of the erotic memoirs championed by Cathy Millet, Melissa P and countless others. Here, gay desire isn’t played for laughs or ridicule, but for its sensuality, as well as the erotic frisson that comes from two characters engaging in something forbidden. The creak of leather boots on wooden floorboards, the rasp of nylon on skin, and the sound of chittering insects weave a deeply seductive spell that is finally broken not by the act itself, but by the realization that we're watching two humans struggling to navigate a long-term relationship.It uses sexual suggestion to inspire, rather than prescribe, and in doing so, allows viewers to respond in their own personal way. This effort by photographer-turned-filmmaker George Harrison Marks came relatively late in the cycle, but retains a fond following thanks to its catchy title and a genuinely charming performance by model-turned-actor Pamela Green. One of my favourites was Venus in the Cloister, a 17th-century bestseller in which a young, pretty novice joins a nunnery and… well, you can imagine. Only very minor issue was it arriving a day later than estimated, but I know my postie has been running a bit late this week.

The transition between old the world and the new, between contradictory and often irreconcilable ideals and ideologies, define the films of this era. In 1920, British filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene filmed a model gracefully posing in and out of her translucent shift in Nude Woman by a Waterfall.From the birth of cinema until the present day, erotic material has predominantly been made by and for cishet men. The part-travelog, part-naturist flick Naked as Nature Intended (1961) is a particularly entertaining entry to the genre, not least for its snapshot of popular West Country tourist sites in the 1960s. His first novel, Lanark (1981), written over almost 30 years, was described by The Guardian as "one of the landmarks . As the male victims willingly sink into black goop, their helplessness at the hands of a beautiful woman offers a twisted form of sexual release.

So the following 10 films are at least as much illustrations of social and historical trends as they are defining examples of cinematic eroticism in their own right. The story follows the titular character’s (played by James Wilby) formative years as a young adult attending the University of Cambridge, where he befriends, then falls in love with Clive (Hugh Grant).Though Maurice received praise in the US, the response in the UK was more muted: film critics at the Times wondered whether "so defiant a salute to homosexual passion should really be welcomed during a spiraling AIDS crisis.
