ADULTS ONLY

*This book was received via NetGalley in exchanged for an honest review.*

After being caught by her father with the stable boy, 16-year-old Victoria is sent to a boarding school in which she believes she will be trained to be a proper woman/wife. However, she is sent to the Venus School for Young Ladies in which she learns the arts of pleasure for men, women and herself.

When schooling is over, she returns to England and finds that her father is going bankrupt. Desperate to help, Victoria uses her new skills to save her family estate.

I like my erotic books to have a story and a purpose. This book was just flat out porn. Every page EVERY PAGE was about how either Victoria did this to herself, roommate, teacher, classmates. It was way too much.

I didn’t understand how her father just sends her to a school without research and I also didn’t understand how the author decided to throw in there a 16 year old having some fun with some old man. It was distasteful and I didn’t see the point of the story. Most of the book we are with Victoria at this school and all she does is have sex. SHE IS 16.

How the author thought this was okay I really don’t know. Yes, back in those days a 16 year old can get married. But here is the thing she wasn’t married screwing half the school and wasn’t during this time girls were supposed to wait until marriage?

Beyond that . . . Victoria was a lifeless horn-dog. I was completely disappointed in this book and I need to stress the fact that this is porn not exotica.

Overall, this book gets 4 out of 10.

Opinion: Marie Calloway

So there is this writer, Marie Calloway, and she is causing a stir in the literature world. She wrote a book called

What Purpose Did I Serve in Your Life” which by the way I think is an awesome title. This book apparently is about her sexual experiences. However, instead of a “story” it is about her real, raw personal sexual experiences. Not only is there an issue that her book is a very bluntly written but she is also only 23.

People feel that her writing pushes the line of pornography and she is pushing the limit. Here is my opinion what limits is she pushing by simply talking about her experience. Simply don’t read the book. There are book that talk about bondage and male domination about how many ways you can do this and do that and books like those sell.

Is it possible that there is a huge up roar because she is 23? For people to believe that people or 23 year old women are not dipping their fingers in random things including sexually is very naive. I feel there shouldn’t be an issue with her publishing her experiences. No one has to read her book; no one has to buy her book.

I personally don’t care who she has been with and I have no intentions of reading it. I do, however, believe that there shouldn’t be a limit to what it is written and published. The beauty of humans is we can make choices. So how about everyone just choose not to buy her book instead of trying to silence her?
