Erotic Quote From The Story of O

Wordy Wednesday | Lexi Sylver | Story of O Erotic Quote | Pauline Reage

Welcome back, sexy fiends.

The first erotic book I ever read was The Story of O.  I was 12 at the time, a very curious and mature 12.  I have always been an avid reader, questing for knowledge of any kind.  I didn’t know then that the book would affect me so deeply. (I mention this on my radio spot with Dr. Laurie Betito on Passion CJAD 800AM a few weeks ago.)

The Story of O is one of the most renowned erotic books of the BDSM genre of all time.  It awoke something within me, giving me a thirst to learn more about the depth of sexuality and the darker, less talked about side of sex and the psyche.  Even years later, it thrills me to read it, reliving O’s punishment.

So this Hump Day, I share with you an excerpt that exquisitely sums up the complexity of O’s submission.

Wordy Wednesday | Lexi Sylver | Story of O Erotic Quote | Pauline Reage

“To Sir Stephen and to me you grant the right…”  The right to dispose of her body however they wished, in whatever place or manner they should choose, the right to keep her in chains, the right to whip her like a slave or prisoner for the slightest failing or infraction, or simply for their pleasure, the right to pay no heed to her pleas and cries, if they should make her cry out.

– Pauline Réage, Story of O: A Novel (1965)
