Contents: From the jacket
Capt. Charles De Vane, educated at Harrow and Trinity College, Oxford, was in the Army List of 1899 as an officer of the Sussex Regiment which fought with distinction in South Africa. The military adventures of this gentleman, also known as a rotter, a bounder, and a cad, took him to the far reaches of the earth -- and to the exotic climes of the most exquisite sexuality. Capt. De Vane involves the reader in the most detailed and intimate accounts of his sexual escapades: his affair with the proud Arabian beauty Nabyla, his frequent visits to an English reformatory school for you ladies, and the enjoyment of his own Middle Eastern harem. Leaving no sexual taboos untested nor feats untried, Captain De Vane succeeds in exposing facets of Edwardian society hitherto unexplored.
Several scenes of young and not so young ladies being birched and whipped. Read a review and excerpt here.
