Story of O
Story of O

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars An extraordinary and explicit tale of enslavement and bondage., 26 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Story of O (Hardcover)
The story of "O" is an an extraordinary and explicit pornographic novel presenting a montage of sexual mistreatment, bondage, whips, masks and chains. Pauline Réage, the author, was a pseudonym for Dominique Aury, an eminent literary figure in France.

The Story of O relates the enslavement of a young and beautiful Parisian fashion photographer, O, by a secret society in a chateau, where her body is ravaged and exploited. As she learns her duties she is put in chains, whipped and branded; any man may use her as he wishes.

This is not a book for the faint hearted, but its beautifully written, elegant and disapassionate prose takes much of the sting out of the subject, and the book offers a powerful evocation of a woman who is willingly enslaved, understanding that the harsher the treatments she endures, the more she is ennobled by her enslavement and the more she proves her love for her master. This english translation is much more euphemistic than the original and very earthy french, but overall the translation is faithful to the spirit of the original.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broke within minutes, 25 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product is not nearly as solid as claimed - I bought a much stronger one from a motorway services for about the same price. It broke within a few minutes of using it; the wheel for tightening it to the window won't stay in the "closed" position but springs open.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than the rubber variety, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We think that these condoms are so much better than the rubber variety. They are made from an ultra-thin but very strong plastic film, and work in a slightly different way to traditional condoms in that they are less elastic and hence the fit is slightly "baggy". There are three big advantages to using these condoms. First of all, you don't get the friction you get with rubber condoms, which tend to make my partner sore after a time. Second, unlike rubber condoms, neither of us could actually feel the Pasante condom when it was in use. Finally, it was very easy to fit, which can be important in the "heat of the moment"!

For those that have an allergy to latex these would be a godsend.

The only slight disadvantage is that both the packaging and method of fitting is somewhat different to a traditional condom, and some practice may be required to follow the instructions and fit the condom the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book but not a masterpiece, 23 Nov 2011
This review is from: Return to the Chateau (Paperback)
My partner and I bought this book with great interest, having read and greatly enjoyed its predecessor "The story of O". It is written in the same sparse, precise,laconic style of Pauline Reage, that serves to take the sting out of the sexual content, which is quite extreme at times.

The book tells the continuing story of "O", a woman enslaved in the first book and now serving as a sexual plaything. Overall, the book is beautifully written - exceptionally well for an erotic novel - but we didn't find it had quite the same sense of an extreme yet supremely exciting adventure that her first book provided. In common with the first book, it presents fairly extreme sexual content, including "O" being whipped for the entertainment of the men she serves, but probably because the passages are written by, and from the standpoint of, a woman, the way in which such content is presented transcends violence and offers a sensitive and erotic evocation of a woman who achieves satisfaction in her degradation by the men she serves.

Perhaps a good test of the quality of an erotic novel is its ability to excite male and female alike, and both my partner and I found this book erotic and exciting. It is not, unlike Reage's first book, a masterpiece. It is, however, an extremely good book that we would both recommend reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solidly engineered and well designed, 23 Nov 2011
I wanted a basic but reliable rower. The Marcy has proved to be ideal. I found it very easy to assemble, only 10 minutes using a rechargeable driver to put the screws in. It is well designed, with an absence of the bits that break off in constant use. For the money, an excellent piece of kit. The only slight niggle is that two plastic feet worked their way loose after a few days - I solved this with a dab of superglue.
