Fifty Shades of Sherlock Holmes

After the success of the literary mesh up Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and other books in the mesh up genre, it seems that Mommy Porn is now the way to go as many classic books get the soft porn treatment.

ePublisher Total E-Bound, have released a new series of e-books (“Clandestine Classics”) that include the titles Northanger Abbey (by Jane Austen and Desiree Holt), Jane Eyre (by Charlotte Bronte and Sierra Cartwright) and Sherlock Holmes: A Study In Scarlet (by A.C. Doyle and Sarah Masters).

The new spin on Sherlock Holmes casts the detective and his sidekick John Watson as gay lovers. In Jane Eyre, Jane has passionate sex with Mr. Rochester before leaving him.

Here's a snippet from the new sexed up Sherlock Holmes:

“In the year 1878 I took my degree of Doctor of Medicine of the University of London, and proceeded to Netley to go through the course prescribed for surgeons in the army. It was a somewhat difficult time, being among so many men, with me being who and what I am. I suppose people may have guessed … How could I explain that the softness of a woman did not appeal? That the swells on their chests were not something I wished to explore? That I preferred the flat planes belonging to a man, the smaller nipples that I longed to flick my tongue over?”  

Another scene from the sexed up Holmes book features Watson coming across (pun intended) two gay lovers.

"Confusion claimed me for a moment, and my mouth dropped open as I took it all in. The joy of knowing other men were the same as I was quickly eclipsed by the fear that if they were caught it would be the end for them. I was stuck between wanting to step forward and warn them they ought to be more careful and remaining where I was to silently watch."

It's all too much for purists who are up in arms at the current movement towards rewriting the classics for a modern sexed up audience.
