Overview

The contributors to this revised classic incorporate autobiographical and firsthand accounts to emphasize the complexity and symbolic nature of this "velvet underground" of human sexuality.

A variety of subworlds and identities are explored: the professional dominatrix; prostitution and S&M; heterosexual, gay, and lesbian S&M; the role of pain and fantasy; and organized S&M groups. Recent trends such as nonmainstream body modification are discussed, along with the increasing integration of S&M themes in areas of popular culture such as the arts, literature, mass media, and fashion.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In support of a sociological perspective that sadomasochism is not a pathology or deviant behavior but a sexual lifestyle of socially produced and shared fantasies, Weinberg (sociology, SUNY-Buffalo) has added new material to the revised edition of this work. He advocates that sadomasochism be viewed as a subculture with its own norms, values, formal organizations, and symbols. Supplementing the sociological and social-psychological explanations, he has included autobiographical accounts for a collection ranging from sterile scholarly writings to the risqu confessions of a dominatrix. Unfortunately, the pieces are uneven in quality and raise certain paradoxes within the sociological theory: Weinberg would have us believe that sadomasochism is "just another social behavior," yet several essayists argue that the very remarkable nature of sadomasochism is itself what gives its adherents their charge. This poorly edited collection is not recommended.David R. Johnson, Louisiana State Univ. Lib., Eunice
