When his ship, Antler, becomes stranded off the coast of Morocco, Lord George Herbert is taken in for the night by the concubines of a local harem whose master is away. Herbert seizes the opportunity offered to him and spends the night taking pleasure in the eager women and convincing the nine ladies, each of a different nationality, to tell the story of her sexual history and how she came to be in the harem. In return, he tells stories of his own exploits.
A Night in a Moorish Harem was banned for many years as a result of its erotic content, and throughout the early twentieth century numerous booksellers were arrested for selling it. It is now considered to be one of the classics of Victorian erotica.
