Emmanuelle is, alongsideStory of O, a classic book of erotica and the most famous French underground novel of the late twentieth century and a work of seductive literary merit.Emmanuelle II continues the story of an unforgettable woman, a happy sensualist, whose unusual erotic experimentation explores the philosophy of sexuality in a novel of literary and philosophical merit. The beautiful heroine's initiation into the ecstasies of love are here set against the exotic background of Thailand, where she easily moves from the attentions of a handsome Siamese prince at an elegant soiree to the dark ante-chamber of a Buddhist temple to learn how the vow of celibacy can be cleverly circumvented by a venerable old monk. A sensual delight,Emmanuelle II succeeds, like few novels before it, in pushing the philosophy of eroticism to the frontiers of myth. This is one of the few erotic novels of ideas since Sade.

כבר לא מפתיע כמו הכרך הראשון אבל עדיין משובח ( )
  amoskovacs | Sep 14, 2013 |
Emmanuelle, jeune épouse de 19 ans, part rejoindre son mari à Bangkok après six mois de séparation. Dans l’avion, elle vit une première expérience sexuelle inaugurale. L’une de ses amies du petit milieu bourgeois de Bangkok lui présente alors un bel italien, Mario. Celui-ci, pressentant une élève «douée», s’instituera son «professeur de jouissances» sans jamais la posséder lui-même. ( )
