fanny-hill-frontispiece podcast recording audiobook aural spoken word erotica

It has come to my attention that thanks to LibriVox, the people who provide free public domain audiobooks recorded by volunteer readers, there are not one but two different complete recordings of John Cleland’s Fanny Hill: The Memoirs Of A Woman Of Pleasure.

The first dates from 2006, runs to 9.5 hours, and is recorded by an assortment of volunteers who read different chapters. The second is from 2016 and features a single reader, who (to my ear) does a better job of bringing the somewhat archaic phrasings to life, while cutting about half an hour off the listening times. You may find these Internet Archive download links more convenient than the LibriVox ones:
