35 Bondage Fiction books

Not all of the scenarios in these books are what I would call
consensual SM, but as stated earlier, fantasies are not reality, and
neither are erotic stories. Don't take these books as seriously as you
would the ones above. Hopefully everyone is now thinking, "Well, duh!
Obviously!" Anne Rice has written a number of books with SM themes.
As A. N. Roquelaure, she released the Sleeping Beauty Trilogy: _The
Claiming of Sleeping Beauty_, _Beauty's Punishment_, and _Beauty's
Release_, in which the hero and heroine are subjected to all kinds of
wonderfully sensual torments. Something for just about everyone. Also
widely available is _Exit to Eden_, under the name Ann Rampling; the
first part of the book is the most SM-y. Anything written by Pat
Califia (_Macho Sluts_, _Doc and Fluff_, _Sapphistry_, and her new
book _Melting Point_). Alyson Publica- tions (40 Plympton St., Boston,
MA 02118, (800) 8-ALYSON) publishes her stuff. She's very well known
in the scene and she is a hot (as in
boiling-glowing-volcanic-nuclear-SUPERHOT) writer.

Be warned, though; _Doc and Fluff_ in particular is not for the faint of
heart! If what you want is SM erotica, _Macho Sluts_ or _Melting Point_
are the ticket. _Leatherwomen_, edited by Laura Antoniou, Rosebud Press,
ISBN 1-563-33095-4. $4.95 at most book stores or direct order from
(800)458-9640. This new paperback is an anthology of S/M fiction by
women. It's very very hot stuff! Some of the fiction in this book rivals
Pat Califia's work, which is high praise indeed. Get it.
_The Slave_, Sara Adamson, Rhinoceros Press, 1994, ISBN 1-56333-173-X. A
surprisingly straightforward look at a woman's search for--and discovery
of--a dream life of servitude. I enjoyed it greatly, and not only was it
hot, it made me think. Recommended. Her earlier book in the trilogy,
_The Marketplace_, is also excellent. And even the final book, _The
Trainer_, is now out! Get 'em while they're hot! Some guest
recommendations: "_Masochism_ (New York: Zone Books, 1991). This book
consists of a translation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's
_Venus_in_Furs_, prefaced by a long essay, 'Coldness and Cruelty,' by
the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze. To quote the dust jacket:
'Deleuze's stunning essay is an attempt to restore to Masoch's work the
rigorous and informed philosophical examination that is due it.'.... I
think Deleuze shows that Masoch has a lot more to say to the BDSM
community than Sade does. "Pleasure and Danger: Exploring Female
Sexuality (Carol Vance, ed.) The Scholar and Feminist Conference at
Barnard in 1982 was almost ripped apart when politically correct
feminists tried to suppress feminists who wanted the freedom to enjoy
power exchange. This is a collection of papers and talks from this
watershed of the Woman's Movement. "S& M: Studies in Sadomasochism
(Thomas Weinberg and G.W. Kamel, eds) This is a collection of essays on
the nature, origin and development of what they call sadomasochism. Some
are decent; some have points of interest; a number are so far off the
mark as to be laughable. "A Taste for Pain: On Masochism and Female
Sexuality (Maria Marcus) The author, a self-admitted masochist, explores
the existing literature on sadomasochism from a very personal,
insightful point of view."

historical interest (and hope of future revival): _Brat Attack_, P.O.
Box 40754, San Francisco, ,CA 94140-0754. A magazine by SM dykes, and
mostly for SM dykes, though the writing is smart and funny no matter
what your crotch looks like. Subs are 10 bucks/3 issues. _Frighten the
Horses_, Heat Seeking Publishing, 41 Sutter St. #1108, San Francisco, CA
94104. FtH has only gotten bigger and more interesting with every issue;
each has a good balance of non-fiction (quite often actively political)
pieces, sexy fiction for ALL kinds of tastes, and news and reviews of
the sexual revolution. Subs are $16/4 issues. Unfortunately spotty
publication record recently. _Venus Infers_, 2215-R Market Street, Suite
294, San Francisco, CA 94114. $8/issue. This is a new, smart, hot S/M
