The 'Beautiful Flagellants' trilogy recounts the travels and erotic adventures of a Frenchman who progresses through Chicago, Boston and New York, although in many editions (such as this one) the three separate novellas are gathered together as the substantial 'The Beautiful Flagellants of New York'. Our hero had been introduced to the pain and pleasure of being birched by a childhood governess, and his tastes quickly graduated to the extremes of such fustigation, after a promising start in France. In the three cities of the United States he progresses, mostly amongst the higher classes, along a lengthy chain of imposing dominatrices, rarely re-visiting his obliging tormentors. Our resilient hero's tastes reside in castigation in itself, and not as a preliminary to less specialised erotic gratification. The book is elegantly written, and sensitive to the lusts felt by voluptuous recipients of the birch rod and more severe implements. The females he encounters are many and highly varied in their approaches, and the work is very inventive in this regard. The book must be considered a classic in that area of erotic flagellation which considers willingly receptive males and voluptuously motivated females.
