"Philadelphia Daily News"On the beach and in the bedroom, perhaps no one plays with the heart -- and other body parts -- as successfully as scandal queen Jackie Collins. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
At a club like Hobo, there's no such thing as an improssible fantasy...
Come to the nightspot where the beautiful people hang out, and meet:
Tony Blake - your host and guide - and anything else you want him to be
Fontaine Khaled - jet-setting beauty - her face is her fortune and men are her weakness
Alexandra - her nubile step-daughter - determined to sample everything the big city has to offer
Like no book before or since, "The Stud" gets to grips with the debauched and decadent lifestyles of society's high flyers. You won't believe your eyes...
'Sexual athletics among the in-crowd!' "Sunday Times"

This was written in the '60's and set primarily in England, so the slang - birds, bread, knocking, berk, and more - is not even on my Kindle dictionary. Kink is making it with multiple partners, sometimes together, sometimes just what we now refer to as an open relationship or cheating. By current erotica terms, it seems somewhat quaint, like finding a porno from the '70's and being amazed that so much hair could be on one body.
The characters are mainly awful people, self-absorbed and greedy for whatever delights them. Sex, fashion, fur coats, and more. (Yes, fur coats, in a number of styles. Vintage indeed).
Patting women on the bottom and patronizing them is normal for the time. Lines like "Birds were always saying no when they meant yes" show some of the beliefs of the era, and leave me slightly queasy.
While I still may read more from this author, I'd probably go for more modern work. For the time frame it was written, this is suitable, potentially scandalous, but not my thing.
