It is a matter of some note that many words and phrases constantly met with in French classics find no place either in ordinary French-English dictionaries or in Argot-Slang glossaries --'Vocabula Amatoria' fills this gap. A reference guide to shocking and provocative French words useful in Victorian society where the English equivalent would be impermissible.
