The Russian Story of O!
This is the exciting story of a beautiful young serf woman struggles to escape the cruel life of slavery imposed upon her by a powerful master - and succeeds after a series amorous escapades involving graphic scenes of BDSM. But first, she is sold into slavery to Prince Soklow and his perverse bride, Nelidowa. Used as a toy by them, her resistance has her sent to the torture chambers where she is subjected to whipping and other ordeals in an effort to tame her rebellious spirit. Escaping, she finds her only haven is Russia's most famous brothel, where she is forced to serve the sexual whims of both men and women.
As Robert Kramer, M.D. wrote in the Introduction to the first U.S. edition, the book "was written late in the eighteenth century just prior to the Communist Revolution. "It reflects the total debasement of human existence in a society where a human being was considered property. It also reflects the corruption of the nobility arising out of its total power over the serfs living in feudal Russia."
An erotic classic with a strong social message.
