The metaphor of the harem in erotic fiction

The metaphor of the harem, for instance, was a particularly rich male power fantasy in its endless supply of exotic, submissive women to fulfill the limitless pornographic pleasures imaginable.

Many a pornographic novel played upon this The Lustful Turk (1828), Scenes in the Seraglio (c. 1860), and A Night in a Moorish Harem (c. 1906) being but a few examples of the exotic's lasting hold on the British imagination. --Modernism, Mass Culture, and the Aesthetics of Obscenity (2000) - Allison Pease
