Uistoria, I think the book is very empowering for women. It makes very clear the difference between being submissive as a person and being submissive as a hhistoria preference.
O is a successful career woman who gets her freak on as a sexual slave. We are all hedonists at heart! The prudish, Protestant roots of reag plus the pc attitudes for which feminism is responsible in part, make this a very shocking boo The original ending of this book was suppressed because it supposedly objectified women.
The prudish, Protestant roots of society plus the pc attitudes for which feminism is responsible in part, make this a very shocking book now. But not as much as in the past for its pornographic content,no now it is seen as the choices its protagonist makes that are shocking. I would recommend the book to loads of people if only because it’s fabulously well-written, a real literary classic and of course, it’s hot, really hot.
How many classics can you say are that? View all 18 comments. Aug 16, Casey Wilson rated it liked it. Pauliine my child is currently one of my 2 friends, I will refrain from writing a real review of this book. Manon, when you’re living far far away and are much older you should check this out. And when you do, please don’t tell me about it. View all 3 comments. I never had any intention of reading Story of O until I was recently asked to review it.
I knew I wouldn’t like it, that it is not the kind of erotica I usually waste my Sunday afternoons with, so rather than purchasing the whole thing, I instead decided to read the Amazon Kindle sample. That, I’m afraid, was way more than enough.
I’m not sure whether the sample starts at the beginning of the story or not, the first chapter felt a little out of place, but then none of what I read really followed I never had any intention of reading Story of O until I was recently asked to review it.
I’m not sure whether the sample starts at the beginning of the story or not, the first chapter felt a little out of place, but then none of what I read really followed the format of a regular novel.
The sample starts as it means to go on: I laughed at this. Perhaps I shouldn’t have. Perhaps I shouldn’t laugh at the fact that O allows herself to be objectified and used sexually, perhaps I should pity her for feeling that it’s okay to be ordered around in this way. Oh well, I’m just a firm believer that if someone tells you to jump off a cliff and you jump off said cliff, then it’s your histoia for being a cliff-jumping moron.
Anyway, as far as your regular run-of-the-mill sex goes, there’s se any description. It’s all entering and plunging and then it’s all over. The whipping, however, gets a lot more attention than the sex does, the whole sample doesn’t actually feel like erotica unless you’re the kind to masturbate while Crimewatch is on. This is a story rfage violence, not sex.
Because sex is a two or more way thing regardless of whether it is BDSM or straight-up lol, pun! If all the participants aren’t invested in the sexual activities and aren’t getting pleasure out of it then it isn’t sex, it’s rape.
Okay, okay, before I get carried away with that idea, it’s kinda important to point out that it wasn’t clear pwuline to whether O was giving consent to what the people were doing to her.
Story of O
She screams and she cries, which to me is something negative, but I’m no expert on how people behave during this kind of sexual encounter. We are not treated to O’s thoughts, only her actions and the actions of the people around her. She doesn’t express regret, pauliine or hstoria pain inwardly. The only thing that is clear to me and makes me feel sick is that the men who are doing all this stuff to her are not concerned with her pleasure. Which, as I said in my review of Fifty Shades of Greyis important because all parties are supposed to get something out of it.
In BDSM relationships, submission is something that a person chooses to do and wants to do because they enjoy what it gives them and what it gives the dom. It is not forced out of someone. The psychological aspect of BDSM is a lot like how it is or should be with regular sex.
You give pleasure, you get pleasure. You have to get past the pleasure stage, until you reach the stage of tears. They rejoice when she is in pain, when she is distressed, and when she screams or cries. For me, trying to hurt someone for the sake of hurting them – not to give them what they want – is no different from rape. The gag stifles all screams and eliminates all but the most violent moans, while allowing tears to flow without restraint.
There was no question of using it that night. On the contrary, they wanted to hear her scream; and the sooner the better. You could argue with me that O actually wants all of this to happen, so I have no point. We are not told what O is thinking, she never speaks to say whether she wants it or not, but I cannot be the only one thinking that this is not the sign of a woman enjoying herself: Then one of the men, holding her with both hands on her hips, plunged into her belly.
He yielded to a second. The third wanted to force his way into the narrower passage and, driving hard, made her scream. When he let her go, sobbing and befouled by tears historla her blindfold, she k to the floor, only to feel someone’s knees against her face, and she realized that her mouth was not to be spared.
Though, personally, I think her mouth is the least of O’s problems if he’s shagging her belly.
What’s that all about? But I’m learning more and more that people automatically categorize books that combine pain and sex as BDSM, even though they’re not, or it’s questionable. In BDSM, both the dom and the sub have got to want what’s happening, or else it’s simply abuse. Though O is hard to understand, there are about hitoria quotes from the sample alone that suggest she isn’t enjoying being tied up and hurt.

And that’s why this story is not erotic, but merely fucked up. View all 24 comments. The most useful piece of advice on literary criticism that I’ve ever come across is Nabokov’s dictum to identify with historja author, not the characters. This book is a perfect example. If you make the historai of identifying with Hiistoria, it’s all a bit bewildering. Why exactly is she interested in being blindfolded, tied up, whipped, and fucked from all angles by a bunch of people she doesn’t even know?
It seems bizarre and rather distasteful.

At first most people read this as erotica. However I read it for a psychology class. There is a much deeper story if you read it from a different perspective. This woman gives up everything.
I don’t mean everything in the passive way we use it today. I mean right down to her voice. She only speaks a few times, I can count the number of times on rwage hand. She gives away her core, her voice and her soul. Just to be loved.
And what a silent psychological break she makes to remain a At first most people read this as erotica. And what a paupine psychological break she makes to remain a body but nothing more than a toy.
The things some women do longing to be loved.
