Notes from the Italian

Italian Nude Statue Picture

Here you'll find stories of erotic intrigue from the land of the Etruscans. Stories reflect different views of each erotic encounter.

These stories reflect the fact that the erotic life is not experienced entirely within linear time but instead by linking windblown scraps of memory to explosive moments within human experience. The structural bondage of both literature and acceptable social practice seem inadequate to describe the electric hot flash of the truly erotic. So be it. Enjoy.
