Room for Sex
Today, Nicholson Baker’s new novel, House of Holes: A Book of Raunch is out. New York magazine called it “[Baker’s] dirtiest work yet: a 200-plus-page tour of a sex-fantasy theme park. ... It may be the raunchiest novel ever published by a major American house.” Baker’s book is fiction, ostensibly an exaggeration of contemporary human sexuality. Magnum takes a look at some of the real-life places and ways in which people make their sexual fantasies come true. (This gallery contains nudity.) NEW YORK CITY—Pandora's Box, Mistress Catherine after the Whipping I, the Versailles Room, 1995.
