Here are a few suggestions if you’re seeking classic literature books dealing with casual dates.

#1 Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence

Great classic erotic literature books about hookups called Lady Chatterley's Lover

This twentieth-century fiction novel is the embodiment of true dating classic literature.

The book covers scenes of the intimacy of a lonely woman confined in a childless marriage but cheating on her husband with their gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors.

Let us stop here to avoid some major spoilers. But if you want to go to the roots of Erotic Literature, this one is a must-read.

#2 The Ebony Tower by John Fowles

The epic romantic novel narrates the story of a young man, David Williams, hired to write an elderly painter’s biography in Southern France.

David is shocked to know the elderly painter, Henry Breasley, is having casual affairs with two young female artists living in his home.

However, despite being married, David is interested in one of the girls, Diana, and makes advances on her, which she rejects, though she has feelings for him, too.

But you guessed it: what is meant to be will be.

The novel tells the story of a young woman married to a man she loves so much but who is a womanizer.

The story portrays love as short-lived, random, and reliant on coincidences.

From the novel, this representation of love could be interpreted to mean that humans are, by nature, expected to have casual dates.

When romantic feelings for a partner fade, and an opportunity for new love presents itself, it could be hard to say no.




#4 Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert

The book narrates Emma Bovary’s story, a doctor’s wife entangled in lies, debts, and an affair outside her marriage.

Charles, Emma’s husband, decides to relocate her to a new market town, but after delivering their daughter, she secretly commences an affair with a wealthy landowner, Rodolphe.

When Emma suggests to Rodolphe that they run away together, he rejects the idea and ends the affair.

Similarly to our Numer one Pick, definitely a classic example of a steamy book you just must read once in your life.

#5 The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

#6 The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje

Let's be honest: who hasn't seen, and loved, the film 'English Patient' with sexy Ralph Fiennes and the great Juliette Binoche?

But did you already knew that the film is based on an equally great book?

The 1992 novel is exquisite, covering several themes, including sex, identity, love, race, and nations.

At one point, the story tells of a married English patient who confesses to having feelings for Katherine Clifton, who is also married.

Later, the two start an affair, but Katherine ends it, fearing her husband would be angry if he found out.

#7 The Red and Black by Stendhal

Classic Steamy Book around a Casual Date called the Red and Black by Stendhal

In the novel, Julien Sorel, an ambitious young man from a humble background, realizes the hypocrisy of those who live a religious life.

That pushes him to seek advancement through self-interest and deceit, leading him into an affair with a married woman, Madame de Renal, and later on with another woman named Mathilde de la Mole.

After the affair between Madame de Renal and Julien is exposed and comes to an end, she writes a letter portraying him as a social-climbing cad preying on emotionally vulnerable married women.

Why we love Classic Literature - especially the steamy-ones

Love is an element of both body and mind. Classic literature books describing casual dates clearly reflect how we view romantic relationships - back then - and you can see how our attitude and values system regarding casual sex and affairs changed over time.

So what do I think: is a casual date, a one night stand or even an affair something to be demonized or is it simply the exercise of personal freedom?

From my point of view, it's certainly fair and okay as long as nobody gets hurt. And sex is just fun, isn't it?

Affairs are certainly more delicate, depending on the life model with your partner. But we certainly don't want to denigrate it in general, because there may be reasons for it depending on the situation. But instead of rushing headlong into it yourself, you can start dreaming - and our selection here will certainly help.
