The Blue Room: A Play in Ten Intimate Acts - David Hare

The Blue Room is a modern update of Arthur Schnitzler's "La Ronde" in which one member of a sexual encounter moves swiftly to another and so on. David Hare's adaptation is about the yearning for connection and the explicit and implicit negotiations between sexual partners. Coitus is a transaction, sometimes happily so, other times clinically so. Schnitzer's original work was a literary outcry against a syphilis epidemic, Hare is less judgmental. These things happen.

Voluptuous Panic: The Erotic World of Weimar Berlin - Mel Gordon

So many great books have been written about Berlin's cultural, artistic, musical, political, and social past, but it's sexual history-during the Weimar period in particular-remains (forgive the pun) behind closed doors. Voluptuous Panic rectifies that and then some! Mel Gordon's erotic history covers not only the practices of various sexual orientations and fetishes (gay, lesbian, BDSM, sex work, etc.) but also how its expression and acceptance was shaped by the culture-at-large and vice-versa. Voluptuous Panic is explicit and detailed about its subject matter, but isn't that what you want from a great history book?
