John Cleland's classic [[HeadTiltinglyKinky erotic]] novel, banned in the United States until 1966.
!! ''Fanny Hill'' contains examples of:
%%* AnythingThatMoves: Phoebe... Louisa...
* AuthorAppeal: Cleland wrote it from [[MySensorsIndicateYouWantToTapThat prison]], as a young man.
* BandOfBrothels: [[RedLightDistrict Mrs. Brown]] and [[SchoolOfSeduction Mrs. Cole's]] establishments, though they differ exceedingly in particulars...
%%* BatheHerAndBringHerToMe: Mrs. Brown and [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty Mr. Croft]].

%%* DoubleStandard: Around every corner.
%%* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Fanny.

%%* TechnicalVirgin: For a good 45 pages, anyway.
* UnreliableNarrator, on two levels
** In universe: Fanny claims to have suffered a ConvenientMiscarriage but many critics suspect she actually had an abortion. She's been abandoned, she owes the equivalent of 200 years' wages (at an honest job) to her landlady, and the landlady is an abortionist. She also can't work as a prostitute while pregnant at the time.
** In RealLife Cleland took his plot from stories he was told by the prostitutes he met in prison. Unfortunately, it appears that their stories were nothing but self-justifying lies, since prostitution at the time wasn't anything like Cleland describes.
%%* UnusualEuphemism: The word "machine" will never be the same.
