Venus in Furs is an amazing story about a man who falls madly in love with a woman and wishes for her to treat him cruelly. The more she actually does so, the more his love deepens for her. I found this book to be a complete page turner. It is definitely an interesting read and I think one of the most interesting things about this book is how long ago it was written and yet it still seems as though it could've been something that just happened yesterday. Definitely recommend this.

This is one of my favorite books. As well as being well- written, it is also a stunning insight into the Dominant/submissive mindset, as well as other aspects of sexual and non-sexual relationships. This book must have been scandalous in its time and I believe it contains important insight even now.

The more I read this story, the more I began to suspect that it was true and not fiction. While it takes place in a long ago time and place, nevertheless it seems very accurate. I have been active in the BDSM scene for several years and this story is similar to many female-dominant/male-submissive relationships I have known. There is even an agreement and a contract between them, and you see that with many SM couples today. This is a hot book to read, especially when you consider that it just might be true.

A much more realistic interpretation of the Dominant/submissive lifestyle than most of the current novels.
