Biblio Eroticus (Moe, Vic.: Leah Bryan, 1999-), edited by Leah Baroque and published in Australia, was a continuation of the editor's previous zine title, Bordello.

The numbering of the zine begins with no. 4 as it continues from Bordello, no. 3. Two copies of no. 4 were issued; one has a white wrap-around with the classification details from the Office of Film and literature. It was sold in a plastic bag containing a condom. From issue no. 5 onwards, the editor, Leah Bryan, changed her name to Leah Baroque.

Biblio Eroticus was one of a select number of zines featured in Magazines: An Exhibition of Material from the Monash University Library Collection, which ran from December 19, 2002 till May 5, 2003.
