Richardson's PAMELA: The First English Novel is About the Allure of a Nymphet!

We're not done reading Samuel Richardson's Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded, but we decided to do a preliminary post due to the book's importance.

So, what's so important about Richardson's Pamela; or, Virtue Rewarded? Well, not only is the novel, which was published in 1740, considered to be the very first English novel, the novel is about an age-discrepant relationship between Pamela Andrews, a 15-year-old maidservant, and Mr. B., the nymphet's wealthy master slash employer.

Initially, Mr. B. attempts to seduce Pamela via the Gorilla method. For example, Pamela shared: "He by force kissed my neck and lips [...]" "He then put his hand in my bosom [...]" 

Subsequently, unsuccessful at Gorilla seduction, Mr. B kindly proposes to the nymphet and they marry.
