Equinox (The Tides of Lust)

The Tides of Lust (Modern Erotic Classics)The Tides of Lust by Samuel R. Delany
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A fantastically-written opening chapter devolves a bit as the book goes on. Pornography may be the last genre where you're allowed to leave scruples about consent, or racism, or sexism, at the door – and yet this is still pretty difficult to read. It feels like an indulgence rather than a treatise – and probably not to most people's tastes. Undeniable though that there are passages of striking imagery and description within.
