Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure (mostly known as Fanny Hill) is an erotic book by English novelist John Cleland first published in London in 1748. Written while the author was in debtors' prison in London, it is considered "the first original English prose pornography, and the first pornography to use the form of the novel". One of the most prosecuted and outlawed books in history, it has become a synonym for obscenity.
