In her new book, Pleasure Bound, Deborah Lutz combines history and
biography, uncovering a taboo-loving counterculture in Victorian London
whose reverberations can be felt today.

Together with renowned artist David Salle, Ms. Lutz will explore the lives
and works of Victorian pornographers - sex rebels who exposed the dark side
of 1860s London. The work of these artists illustrated troubles that ran
beneath the surface of the larger social fabric: the struggle for women¹s
emancipation, the dissolution of traditional religions into more personal
expressions of faith, and the pressing need to expand accepted forms of
sexual expression. These were artists and writers who gathered together to
create sexually-charged art, thus highlighting the eroticism of
collaboration.
