'The Autobiography of a Flea' was initally published in 1887, and inspired a film directed by one of the first female pornographic directors from the 1970s. Starring the inimitable John C Holmes, it is recognised as a classic example of the x-rated genre. Can men of the cloth ever escape temptation? A young maiden, Bella, and her boyfriend Charlie consummate their passion under the moonlight, shrouded in petticoats. Little do they know that someone has been watching them - a priest - who blackmails Bella over the sight he has witnessed, enslaving her into a world of sexual subservience. 'The Autobiography of a Flea' is narrated by the smallest voyeur of them all, who uses his size to avenge Bella's misfortune, revealing the sordid details of a priest's inner sanctum.
