Rec's for Vintage style erotic with humor

Jan 15, 2021, 2:07pm

I adored John Cleland's Fanny Hill and just finished a novella called Miss Handicock's School for Young Ladies (hot and funny) and realized I can't find anything else like these books. I read a lot and hadn't reviewed or been in groups for years (was studying for my PhD) and didn't have time for fun reading. I'm not into the auctioning or billionaire or shapeshifting lit really. I do enjoy a good laugh and sexual adventures (living vicariously in the time of COVID). Anyone know of any authors writing erotica with humor and not in the "taboo" category? Erotica searches on Amazon are just full of rather too weird for me stuff. I did read Anne Rice when she was still A.N. Roquelaure. Didn't love it all but some of it was fun. I had to read de Sade in college so wasn't too shocked by her old Beauty Series. Any suggestions?

Ermyntrude and Esmeralda, by Lytton Strachey. It's very short and very funny.

Courtney Milan does historical romances (with sex but not enough that I would classify them as erotica) and I love her characters and banter. Unfortunately, I can't think anything period offhand but have something niggling the back of my brain. If I remember it, I will post again.
