Follow the story of Beatrice in Volume One, Lady Pokingham, where sordid adventures in the sexual underworld are commonplace, and virginal fantasies, flagellation, and Catholic guilt manifest themselves as streams of erotic poetry. In Volume Two, La Rose d'Amour, a young man is influenced by his lusty young cousins, who invite him to join an illicit club of debauchery and brandy-saturated orgies, where pearl necklaces and see-through negligees are the only dress codes required.

These stories are taken from The Pearl (A Magazine of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading), which was published between 1879 and 1880, and which across its 18-issue lifetime reveled unashamedly in its reputation for salubrious gossip from the upper echelons of society.
