Venus in Furs

ByLeopold Von Sacher-Masoch

Venus in Furs is a erotic novel. The unnamed narrator tells his dreams to a friend, Severiy Austrian author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, the best known of his works. The framing story concerns a man who dreams of speaking to Venus about love while she wears furs. This manuscript tells of a man, Severin von Kusiemski, so infatuated with a woman, Wanda von Dunajew, that he requests to be treated as her slave, and encourages her to treat him in progressively more degrading ways. At first Wanda does not understand or relate to the request, but after humouring Severin a bit she finds the advantages of the method to be interesting and enthusiastically embraces the idea; though at the same time, she disdains Severin for allowing her to do so. Severin describes his feelings during these experiences as suprasensuality. In Florence, Wanda treats him brutally as a servant, and recruits a trio of African women to dominate him.
