Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There was in Ancient Greece a particular island, in shape of a triangle, just like the female mane, which symbolized the most contradictory fantasies: the ""island of Lesbos.""

For some, this is the sanctuary of female homosexuality, for others, it is the first expression of freedom by Aeolian women. In the first case, it is often men who try to reject and condemn the notion of pleasure between two women. In the second case, often women, they demand the right to equality. The poetess Sappho did not in anyway facilitate the relationship between men and women, with her admirable Ode to Aphrodite which celebrates the love and sexuality between to women.

With the liberalization of morals, female homosexuality is part of modern society's and cannot be ignored.

But what does history retain from these practices? How is the love between women appreciated? By infringing on the rules of past societies, how did these women live their particularity and their forbidden sexuality?

Synopsis:

The books found in this Temptation series are books on erotic art.
