Lady Chatterley and Mellors beat Carrie and Mr Big to the title of Hottest Lovers In Literature!

The book may have been written 80 years ago, but Lady Chatterley and Mellors are still considered the hottest lovers in literature. 45% rated the classic couple as having the sexiest relationship in a survey by’s Erotic Book Club, compared to just 12% for contemporary rivals Carrie and Mr Big.

D.H. Lawrence’s outrageous couple also triumphed over ‘Romeo and Juliet’ (12%), chick lit favourites ‘Bridget Jones’ and Mark Darcy (10%) and Elizabeth and Darcy from ‘Pride and Prejudice’ – a clear vote for raunch over romance!

The LoveHoney Erotic Book Club survey also revealed that sex is the key motivation for reading erotic books – in more ways than one! 31% admitted flicking through to the sex scenes to turn themselves on, 19% use them as a safe way to explore their fantasies, 16% find them a great warm up to lovemaking, and a further 15% study them for sex tips and tricks to spark up their bedroom antics.

LoveHoney’s online Erotic Book Club teams the naughtiest novels from top publishers such as Black Lace and Xcite, with book club essentials such as reading notes and author interviews, ensuring that each title is a true pleasure to read. Only the sexiest books make it on to the reading list, and with a free vibrator or sexy accessory with every featured book, it’s the perfect place to turn yourself on to erotic literature.

“Sales of erotic books have never been higher, yet it’s almost impossible to find recommendations or reviews to help you work out which ones are ‘sizzling hot’ rather than ‘absolutely not’,” says LoveHoney Erotic Book Club editor Carly Drew. “The LoveHoney Erotic Book Club may be more Richard and Rude-y than Richard and Judy, but our hot book choices are bound to satisfy your deepest desires – literary and otherwise!

Further frisky features are available on the LoveHoney Erotic Book Club website, where you can download exclusive raunchy reads, take a look inside the Book of the Month, share your views and reviews on the forum, and even pick up tips on how to write your own erotic masterpiece!
