Summary

S-M illuminates the controversy over the practice of sadomasochism and its place in contemporary culture. The book addresses the role of women in S/M; American society and masochism; the true nature of the Marquis de Sade; spanking in various countries; undinism, more popularly known as "water sports"; and general S/M scenarios. An S/M bibliography ranging from the steamy works of Baudelaire to Pauline Reage's Story of O, is also included in this exploration of sexual fantasy across the ages.
