The Hellfire Club Book Description :

Brilliant, amusing, and utterly immoral, young noblemen, politicians, artists and other eminent men of eighteenth century England thronged to the abbey of Medmenham and the elaborately decorated caves and gardens of West Wycombe Park to attend meetings of a club that outraged and threatened the security of an entire country — the notorious Hellfire Club. Dedicated to black magic, sexual orgies, and political conspiracies, the records of their elaborately obscene rituals, jests, and parties have both fascinated and appalled the world for over three centuries. The Hellfire Club became popular during an age of scandal. Standards of respectability had become middle class — a middle class who knew nothing of art and literature and whose outlook was bo...

BOUND FOR THE HELLFIRE CLUB Book Description :

Secret societies have long had a history in England. The Hellfire Club was started to satisfy the perverted lusts of those aristocrats. It was more than sexual orgies with black magic and pagan rights as well as BDSM. It would take all that the English commoner found repulsive, degrading and dangerous and turn it into a lavish and decadent affair. Young women, innocent and pure, voluntarily sold their bodies for thirty days in order to change their destitute lives and give them a future. This story tells the tales of three women and how it changed each of their lives forever. Charity, Abigail and Sarah were taken from the streets of England before they were tarnished by men that would prey upon their misery. Did they make the right decision, or did t...

Hollywood s Hellfire Club Book Description :

They made fans go crazy and censors apoplectic, spent fortunes faster than they made them, forged Rembrandts and hung them in major museums, went on trial for committing statutory rape with necrophiliac teenage girls, reinterpreted Hamlet as an incestuous mama's boy,and swilled immeasurable quantities of spirits during week-long parties on wobbly yachts. They were "The Bundy Drive Boys," and they made the Rat Pack look like Cub Scouts. Their self-destructiveness was spectacular, the misanthropy profound, but behind the boozy bravado was a devoted mutual affection. The Bundy Drive Boys' un-bowdlerized stories have never been illustrated so well or told so completely as within Hollywood's Hellfire Club. Author Gregory William Mank also wrote It's Alive...

The Hell fire Clubs Book Description :

The Hell-Fire Clubs conjure up images of aristocratic rakes outraging respectability at every turn, cutting a swath through the village maidens and celebrating Black Masses. While all this is true, it is not the whole story. The author of this volume has assembled an account of the Clubs and of their antecedents and descendants. At the centre of the book is the principal brotherhood, known by the Hell-Fire name - Sir Francis Dashwood's notorious Monks of Medmenham, with their strange rituals and initiation rites, library of erotica and nun companions recruited from the brothels of London. From this maverick group flow such notable literary libertines as Horace Walpole and Lord Byron. Pre-dating Medmenham are the figures of Rabelais and John Dee, both...
