Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Erotolepsy is a term first used by English author Thomas Hardy in his 1895 novel Jude the Obscure[1] to describe a passionate sensual desire and longing which is more violent and urgently felt than erotomania.[2] It has been variously described as "love-seizure" and "sexual recklessness".[3] The term has since made its way into more widespread common parlance, being used by such writers as American poet Susan Mitchell in her 2001 poetry collection Erotikon.[4]
