First published in 1870, the author of 'Venus in Furs' defined - and unwittingly gave his own name to - that sexual proclivity we know as masochism in this understated, charged erotic classic.

What woman could resist a trembling man handing her the whip?

Severin is a young Galician nobleman with a secret; he can only love a woman with a ruthless heart, who will rain her whip upon him in a shower of bloody kisses. When he meets Wanda, the wealthy and beautiful widow living in the apartment upstairs, he wonders if she might be the one to help him realise his darkest desires. But Wanda is better than she ever dreamed possible at domination - and soon Severin realises he is powerless to escape what he has begun. Here, fantasy and reality writhe together in a ceaseless, fraught embrace...

Contributors

Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch was an Austrian writer of fiction and short stories, who inspired the clinical category of 'masochism'. His complex sexual fantasies, involving the love of pain and submission, ignited a once secretive pursuit into that of a recognised fetish. His masterpiece inspired a famous song of the same name by The Velvet Underground, and continues to be referred to as a defining work within the realm of erotic literature.
