Blackmailed by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, she was forced to play sadistic roles in his exotic sexual fantasies. Underneath its unforgettable poetic imagery and almost unbearable emotional cataclysms reigns a woman's consistent unblinking investigation of the limits of morality and the deepest meanings of love.
The Confessions of Wanda von Sacher-Masoch is the first English translation of this early 20th century feminist classic by an SM pioneer. It is the racy and riveting memoir by the woman who was married for ten years to Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, the author of Venus in Furs. The games Wanda played called into serious question who was the Master and who the Slave. Some amazing adventures and wild characters populate this love story, including the mysterious Ludwig II of Bavaria, creator of the amazing Neuschwanstein castle and other baroque wonders.
