A pornographic version of Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels, in which the protagonist is pleasured by tiny Lilliputian women and works as a sex toy for giants, went on sale in Moscow over the weekend. (Thanks to Kevin for the link.)
The woman who provided the XXX manuscript (The Erotic Adventures of Lemuel Gulliver) to the Russian publisher said that she bought it from “descendants of a close friend of author Jonathan Swift.”
“They had tried in the past to get it published but had never been believed that it was genuine, and I was skeptica, but historians have authenticated the age of the material and even style of writing,” Fox News quoted her as saying.
If this version turns out to be authentic, I shudder to think what the original draft of “A Modest Proposal” might’ve looked like.
