Vulcan Love Slave was the first in a series of novels and holonovels with an erotic but non-violent plot, presumably featuring a Vulcan.

Quark owned at least one copy of the novel, and described it as "a hell of a read". In 2373, he offered to sell his first edition to Odo after he discovered that the Constable liked to read romance novels. (DS9: "The Ascent")

Vulcan Love Slave was adapted into an erotic holographic program, which was available in the holosuites of Quark's on Deep Space 9. Grand Nagus Zek was particularly fond of the program, and made an effort to "enjoy" the program whenever he visited the station. (DS9: "The Emperor's New Cloak")

A number of sequels to the original Vulcan Love Slave holonovel were created, including Vulcan Love Slave, Part II: The Revenge and Vulcan Love Slave, Volume III. (DS9: "Doctor Bashir, I Presume", "The Emperor's New Cloak")

A precedent for the Ferengi fascination with Vulcan sexuality was later given in ENT: "Acquisition", where T'Pol pretended to be a slave "trained in the arts of pleasure."
A book in the Vulcan Love Slave series can be found on a table in Ensign Munro's quarters aboard USS Voyager in the video game Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force.
