An autobiographical account of a would-be politician's sexual exploits has seen him kicked out of the Victorian division of the Liberal Party ahead of next month's state election.

Nigel Gohl, a Melbourne mortgage broker, wrote a book in 2005 entitled Around the World in 80 Babes, which detailed his erotic escapades with "European princesses, to English slappers, to American cheerleaders".

It also offered advice on how to date women and get them in the sack efficiently.

The book has come back to haunt 42-year-old Mr Gohl, who is now married, and was planning on running for the state seat of Prahran - but has now been forced to drop out.

And it's not just Mr Gohl who's found himself in trouble thanks to the book - now the wider Victorian Liberal Party has come under fire.

The entire party has been left embarrassed by its blasé approach to vetting, which meant it was completely unaware of Mr Gohl's memoir, or its explicit nature.

If they'd done their research, they would have known Mr Gohl said "chicks, babes, women and nudity" were his favourite things, and that he bragged about giving a woman three orgasms "during an intense forty-minute session".

The book is laden with sexist remarks that have now left Mr Gohl, his wife and his party humiliated - and resulted in him withdrawing his bid for pre-selection.

"While I loved pounding her athletic body, she bored me to tears with her desires to spend Saturday AND Sunday mornings going for walks and picnics," he wrote in one part.

"In relation to chicks, my life definitely started to resemble 54. By focusing my efforts seven days a week, I became amazed as to how many chicks I could add to my schedule," he said in another.

"The quicker you can get the first date out of the way and the time needed for a girl to feel comfortable with you, the quicker you start getting laid!" he advised readers, before adding that "every now and then you will find that a mid-week drink may turn into a bonking session".

Victorian Liberal Party leader Simon Frost is believed to have spoken at length with Mr Gohl about the book, while opposition leader Matthew Guy has blasted it as "demeaning towards women".
