The novel that I'd like to share with you is "The Golden Lotus", which is one of the most famous novels in the Chinese history. It is the earliest novel which was written by modern Chinese（白话文）. And also, it is the first porn novel according to history. The writer's name is Lanling Ha Ha Guy（兰陵笑笑生）, it's a nickname, but the real identity is still remained unknown.
I read the novel when I was in middle school. Because we don't have sex education in China, so we have to find our own ways to know "the thing". I bought the book because it had a very wild cover, so I started my reading when my parents fell asleep. I didn't think they would allow me to read this kind of books.
The story of the novel is complicated, it tells the whole life about the boss of a drug store. And he knew somebody, actually he knew a lot of officials who had power. So he did a lot of bad things, like raping women, stealing the beautiful wife from his friend, having sex together with the woman and her daughter. As a porn novel, it includes a lot of details of sex and the tools and the techniques people used in ancient China. One of the most unforgettable plot is ancient Chinese men in Song Dynasty didn't appreciate women as we do now. They like women with flat boobs, tiny feet and big bottoms, which is completely different. They used to consider women with big boobs as the symbol of evil, so some women had to use thick cloth to tie their boobs to stop them from growing big.
This novel is really something, it helped me pass those lonely nights and I've learnt a lot of things from it. Not only those sex skills, but also the words, sentences and patterns it has.返回搜狐，查看更多
