"Laura Middleton, Her Brother and Her Lover" is a classic Victorian erotic novel, published in 1891. It contains graphic sexual descriptions and themes. "If I had perceived an alteration in Laura's appearance, she had evidently been no less struck ...
with the change that had taken place in my person, and she expressed her surprise at my having grown so much. I fancied I could perceive that there was some curiosity to ascertain what was the extent of the change which had taken place in a certain quarter, and I caught her eyes more than once glancing in a direction where she must have perceived symptoms of a growth at least corresponding to that of the other parts of my body. I was induced to think that she was by no means displeased with the discovery from her manner towards me, which instead of being as formerly haughty and condescending was now frank and friendly."
