Histoire d'O based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I understand this to be a classic of BDSM and sex literature. However, I found myself disappointed by Story of O. I would have liked more of O's thoughts and feelings to be given to the reader in order to understand her submission and how she feels about it. As it is, it seemed to me that her submission was with her body only and not her heart and mind. It was only in brief glimpses did O think on her submission and remark on its ease and her satisfaction. I also feel that the book played on the theme that submissives are sex slaves and sex toys to their Masters. I found this distasteful and out of my style of thought as far as D/s goes. The women were mindless sex toys. It was an empty book. Ultimately, while sexy, that was all it really was. Sex and violence.
