    In 1885 sixteen-year-old Johann Gewirtz leaves Imperial Vienna and the Continental fleshly delights that he has begun to explore so avidly to complete his education in England. Although he is given a delicious farewell, courtesy of two of the luscious chambermaids in the Gewirtz household, he is somewhat apprehensive about what life will hold for him at the Harcourt Academy for the Sons of Gentlefolk. However, Johann's spirits are buoyed up on the journey by some sensual fun with uninhibited sisters from Ireland, and a wild two days in Paris with his Uncle Pieter and the famous artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. Little wonder that Johann is feeling rather tired by the time he reaches London. But he summons up new reserves of strength to enjoy further romps with two raunchy young English girls before settling in at his new school.
