THE JEWEL IN THE LOTUS BY ALLEN EDWARDES. Allen Edwardes was the pen name of a scholar of oriental erotica, the most famous of whose books was The Jewel in the Lotus: A Historical Survey of the Sexual Culture of the East, published in 1959 by the Julian Press in New York. In its introduction by the well-known American psychologist Dr. Albert Ellis, it was welcomed as virtually the only existing work in English which systematically describes and analyzes the sex customs and ideas which were prevalent in the East and, especially the Middle East, in pre-twentieth century times.

This book seems to want to pretend that it's a serious scholarly "historical survey of the sexual culture of the East". Really, I think they are using a pseudo-scientific front to conceal the rollicking, bawdy naughtiness that this book truly contains. The parts on flatulence are absolutely hilarious, as are the colloquial words for various parts of the anatomy and bodily functions (i.e.- the filbert, a fizzler). If you like droll antiquarian descriptions of lewd, outrageous sexual practices, you will love this book. If you want a serious non-fiction tome to research the topic, it's probably not what you're looking for.
