There are two rules of St. Bridget, the first being is that any act of indiscretion attracts a sound birching before the entire society. The second is that one must kiss the rod before it is applied.
Told in graphic letters to her friend, pseudonymous author Margaret Anson recounts the flagellatory exploits while boarded at a Parisian finishing school for young ladies. Among the naughty and the nice, she will be paraded chemise tucked up and bottom bared for the swift application of cane and twig. In so doing, Margaret will experience a profound awakening of that part which yearns to be publicly humiliated. But will she react the same way when she is asked to punish another? And what will happen when the group acquire a strapping young lad to be their page? Will they enjoy a ripe male posterior as well as that of their firm and nubile member's?
Attributed to author James Glass Betram, this gem of Victorian erotica exemplifies the mid 19th century fascination with bondage and flagellation. Swish!
