Gamiani, Or Two Nights of Excess
Modeled after George Sand, this work gives us a young man observing Gamiani and a young girl, obligingly named Fanny, engaged in their lesbian bed. Having watched them and provoked by their gay abandonment, he reveals himself, joins them, and they spend the night alternately sharing their intimate histories and their bodies in orgies of almost religious intensity. The stories they tell include the rape of one in a monastery and the nearly fatal debauchment of another in a convent, as well as encounters with a number of animals. Author Edith Wharton had an unpublished work based on this text.
