After watching it I was surprised and scared like shit because it’s not how I imagined it would be.

I love a good, dark, erotic story, but this was just bizarre.

And ‘boring’ is definitely not the word that any erotica book should be described as, tirlogy No, this book is about abuse, repeated rape degradation, humiliation, breaking the spirits of young, innocent boys and girls and spanking.

I was told that it would help me understand what total submission meant. This is not that. Key word there being “consensual”. Jun 03, Jasmin rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Writing Horror and the Body: I love this set and could read it over and over. BDSM is an acquired taste and if you’re not really into it, you’ll find the book repulsive.
