This is one of the classics of the erotic genre, also known as ‘Gynecocracy’, and with an authorship given variously as ‘Viscount Ladywood’. It appears to be a genuine Victorian/Edwardian product, and it relates the early life of the rather unruly Robinson, and his parents’ attempt to correct his natural teenage tendencies for exploration. This entails sending the young man to an aunt for correctional education of the painful sort. The pedagogical routine she inflicts does little to restrain his urges, or indeed the similar urges of his female cousins, but it leaves him with a profound respect for the power that females may exert over males. As in the parallel classic ‘Harriet Marwood, Governess’, Robinson develops intensely amorous feelings for the women in his life. Two major differences, however, concern his female costuming and his wholesale introduction to the practice of ‘queening’. A fascinating book, and not just, I suggest, for those sharing those particular interests. ( )
