CSF Publishing's Classic Erotica Collection includes title's carefully updated and corrected from the original text, and features new enhancements such as the author's biography and bibliography, and illustrations. ABOUT THE BOOK: "Venus in Furs" describes the obsessions of Severin von Kusiemski, a European nobleman who desires to be enslaved to a woman. Severin finds his ideal of voluptuous cruelty in the merciless Wanda von Dunajew. This is a passionate and powerful portrayal of one man's struggle to enlighten and instruct himself and others in the realm of desire. Published in 1870, the novel gained notoriety and a degree of immortality for its author when the word "masochism" -- derived from his name -- entered the vocabulary of psychiatry. This remains a classic literary statement on sexual submission and control. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The Chevalier Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (1836 - 1895) was an Austrian writer and journalist, who gained renown for his romantic stories of Galician life. The term masochism is derived from his name. During his lifetime, Sacher-Masoch was well known as a man of letters, a utopian thinker who espoused socialist and humanist ideals in his fiction and non-fiction. Most of his works remain untranslated into English. The novel "Venus in Furs" is his only book commonly available in English.

Offensive Content

I understand that this is "classic" erotica and plays an important part in historical literature. However unless you are studying this book, I do not recommend reading it. I was aware that it included sadomasochism but I didn't realize the extent of the abuse, humiliation and rape that would take place. I am quite sensitive to this type of extreme subject and don't believe that anyone should take pleasure from un-consensual acts. This being called "erotica" is offensive to me.
