About the Author

TONY PERROTTET is the author of four previous books: Off the Deep End, Pagan Holiday, The Naked Olympics, and Napoleon's Privates. He lives in New York City.

Reviews

"Hugely entertaining... Perrottet has a wonderful knack for ferreting out the obscure, the offbeat, and the just plain weird. A real eye opener."
-Booklist

"Lots of people write about sex, and lots of people write about history, but nobody writes about either quite the way Tony Perrottet does. His well-informed wit is front and center in his latest-and, for my money-best book to date. . . . The perfect read for anyone blessed with a sense of humor and a touch of perverse curiosity."
-Chris Ryan, New York Times-bestselling author of Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality

"This X-rated version of "National Lampoon's European Vacation" segues into an amusing - and absorbing - series of quests... (Perrottet) tears away Europe's decorous historical facade he pays spirited homage to the rakes and reprobates who subscribed to Casanova's motto: "I have devoted my life to the pursuit of pleasure."
-- The New York Times Book Review

"Delightful and edifying... Undercover historian Tony Perrottet presents the Tour with a twist: studying the Continent's most famous, or infamous, sites and relics associated with human sexuality, from the belle epoque brothels of Paris to a secret Vatican bathroom covered with erotic panels by Raphael."
-Trip Lit, National Geographic Traveler

"A terrifically funny writer . . . informative and twice as quirky.
-Boston Globe
