About edit

  • The best account of sexuality in the lower classes of Vienna is the classic The Memoirs of Josephine Mutzenbacher by Felix Salten, which originally appeared in 1895. It is the true story of Josephine, or Pepi as she was called, who was born in Ottaring in 1849 and became one of the most famous courtesans in Vienna in the 1880s and '90s. Retired to a ranch in Carinthia, she summoned Salten, author of Bambi, to write her memoirs.
