"His Cento Nuptialis is a patchwork of fragments taken from Vergil cleverly reconstructed into a hexameter poem that gives a blow-by-blow account of a defloration. In the preface, he claims he was put up to it by a challenge from the emperor Valentinian himself." (Nicholas Ostler, Ad Infinitum)

Valde gaudeo hoc librum tibi placere! Centio Nupitalis mihi in rebus agendis/legendis/vertendis addatur.

By the way, I meant the book by Ostler, not Ausonius.
 
Pacis puella, you really surprise me. It will take me a while to get through this text without an English, Spanish, or German translation.
Are there any other Latin erotica that I can add o my online collection ?
