The sexy teacups on the cover are completely appropriate.

This is the full text of my message to a friend:
 
"Today's recommendation for a short thing to read: Alan Bennett's Smut. Both stories are very funny, and not actually all that smutty, except in a hilariously repressed British sort of way. Also it has sexy teacups on the cover, which is why I picked it up in the first place."
 
If that's not enough to sell you on it, Bennett is better known as a playwright: check out The History Boys, based on his award-winning play, to see more of his sly wit and generosity at work.
