Este volumen es el resultado de una investigacion interdisciplinar en torno a la moral sexual y a su reflejo en la cultura espanola entre 1843 y 1900, a partir del analisis de los textos literarios, medico-higienicos y socio-morales, con el trasfondo de la literatura francesa contemporanea como elemento de referencia imprescindible.

Durante el reinado de Isabel II nace la nueva novela espanola, inspirada en la profunda fractura existente entre la moral publica y la vida privada. En pleno debate europeo en torno a la legalizacion o abolicion del comercio carnal, emerge como heroina moderna la mujer infame, en concreto la prostituta, simbolo de los males que aquejan a la sociedad contemporanea. La presencia de la mujer publica en la narrativa popular dara lugar a una asentada corriente lupanaria que legitimara la incursion de la literatura en los espacios de la vida privada y en la silenciada sexualidad femenina, abono necesario para el nacimiento de la novela erotica espanola del siglo XX.
