Veronica Franco

the the 16th century Venetian Vixen with a talent for the erotic arts

Nell Gwynn

the saucy wench who went from Drury Lane orange seller to Royal Mistress

T’zu-Hsi

the Concubine, Fifth Class, whose seduction skills made her Empress of China

Cora Pearl

the Grand Horizontal who took Paris by storm with her Theatre of Lust

Catherine ‘Skittles’ Walters

By the power of Venus, these five extraordinary women were magically brought together,

to swap stories, share secrets of seduction and revel in their glamorous sensuality.
