PARADISE FOUND

For those who desire to expand their amorous repertoire and a lush visual complement to the groundbreaking Boudoir Bible.

We are pleased to announce that Betony Vernon’s upcoming book Paradise Found: An Erotic Treasury for Sybarites, published by Rizzoli New York, will be released in October 2022 and can now be pre-ordered.

The book delineates the development of Betony Vernon’s mission throughout three decades and displays her celebrated “jewel-tools”, handcrafted erotic jewelry and instruments of bliss of her own design coveted by knowing collectors all over the world, alongside poetic guidance on their use to reach new degrees of fulfilment

In Paradise Found, Betony Vernon offers an inclusive view of sexuality for the twenty-first century and provides readers with the erotic tools and inspiration to broaden their sensual horizons.

Vernon’s work has been documented by some of the top names in fashion photography and illustration, from Douglas Kirkland and Ellen von Unwerth to Nick Knight and David Downton, Jeff Burton, François Berthoud, and many others. Their riveting images beckon us to explore the world of intimacy and sensual satisfaction with creative new eyes.

THE BOUDOIR BIBLE

A comprehensive and instructional guide to the contemporary sexual landscape, covering “new territories” such as bondage, role play and sex toys that would make your parents blush. The tome is currently published in English, French, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Czech, Polish, Russian and Taiwanese. The bestseller reflects Betony’s deep belief that everyone has the right to enjoy truly satisfying sexual relations, without prejudice.

The Boudoir Bible provides basic body understanding that we all should have learned at school but didn’t. It fills those niches missing from other sex guides including full, elaborated chapters on rope bondage, restraint of sound and sight, erotic flagellation and the stimulation of new erogenous zones among innumerable other offerings. Well-researched, The Boudoir Bible is written from a joyful, sex-positive point of view.

Going beyond the “lovemaking” of older guides, this witty and uninhibited tome expands the sexual act to encompass “verboten” topics with chapters entitled “The Genital Gym,” “Nipple Tease,” “Male Ejaculation Control” and “The Anthems of Anal Sex.” Illustrated by the renowned artist François Berthoud, whose provocative creations have graced both Prada campaigns and museum exhibitions around the world, The Boudoir Bible provides a fresh view of sexuality in the twenty-first century.
