      youtube watch v PK8ijrapwA8 Way back in 1869 Leopold wrote this book about some fun he was having.Tis true Leo gave the world a new label for these exploits masochism What we ve done with it since then is our own business Severin did get what he wanted So many people never do They never dare ask.

      Umm, okayThe first portion of this book is wonderful The forced lasciviousness of the female protagonist, the pathetic attempts at seeming like a banshee, a Siren, all draped in furs and spouting some bullshit about Paganism I have met this girl before, and this boy, I have watched their pitiful dance of apathy, their ham handed fears of monotony and monogamy, the in my opinion bullshit notion that caring in the romantic sense for one chosen and well suited person with whom you specifically conn [...]

      My initial fears with Venus in Furs was would it sink into the darker depths of depravity similar with that of Donatien Alphonse Fran ois the Marquis de Sade , but didn t need to worry, because I was pleasantly surprised by it s charming and playful nature Predominantly only two characters take centre stage, with nobleman Severin von Kusiemski falling under the seductive spell of the flame haired Wanda von Dunajew, he loves her so much to the extent of wanting to be her slave, and encourages to [...]

      You interest me Most men are very commonplace, without verve or poetry In you there is a certain depth and capacity for enthusiasm and a deep seriousness, which delight me I might learn to love you 20 This line really jumped out at me, because it s just what I imagine a lot of nerds imagine some lady will say to them some day And they ll be like yeah I have a depth and capacity for enthusiasm I was just waiting for someone to notice I bet nerds really like this book, which was written by a nerd [...]

      To be the slave of a woman, a beautiful woman, whom I love, whom I worship And who mistreats you for it, Wanda broke in, laughing Yes, who ties me up and whips me, who kicks me when she belong to another man If submission and bondage is your thing, then you will probably like this book In a nutshell, Severin likes women Severin likes women who are filthy rich Severin likes women who are filthy rich and treat him like shit Wanda is that woman That is pretty much what Venus in Furs is about Leopol [...]

      The DSM IV lists masochism as a derivation of sexual gratification from being subjected to physical pain or humiliation by oneself or another person Pleasure is being abused or dominated The psychiatric bible must have read Venus in Furs for its definitions Even the word used for sexual pursuits comes from the author s name.Sacher Masoch was an Austrian writer of letters and a journalist I stopped counting books attributed to him when it was greater than forty He wrote Venus in Furs in 1870 thou [...]

      Haven t reviewed on in a while, but was googling this work s translation dates and came across the negative reviews here Thought I should contribute my defence.What Makes Venus in Furs a groundbreaking and thoroughly enjoyable work 1 Literary traditionThe finely rendered frame structure follows the German novella tradition s strong, almost proscriptive, tradition of narrative framing think Goethe, Storm, Hoffmann Accordingly, it created a sensation among early readers by presenting shocking cont [...]

      How I caused irreparable harm to our entire country because of a relationship gone sour with the author of Anti Oedipus Confession time I didn t really read this book, but I m going to rate it anyway I did read the Deleuze book Cruelty, which is him writing about Venus in Furs, and then the book itself I remember really liking the Deleuze part, but at that point in my life I was so in love with Deleuze that he could have written anything and I would have ejaculated all over it It was a bad time [...]

      If I remember correctly, this book was stupid It also seems to have contributed to a lot of ridiculous behavior, and has led indirectly to many horrendous cultural products such as people taking their silly sex hang ups waaaaay too seriously, fetish nights, vinyl outfits, and that irritating kid in your freshman dorm who walked around with a leash around his neck BUT, on the PLUS side, having read it made me feel way knowledgeable about the VU song on the banana album, which I guess was pretty [...]

      I wanted to write an in depth review, quoting favorite passages from the book, but for now let s just say that this was the right read for me at the right time I was expecting it to be titillating and dirty but instead encountered something rather lovely a concentrated tale of obsession and longing and risky role playing that turns a woman emulating a simple ancient Grecian hedonism into a enthusiastic wielder of capricious physical and mental cruelty rendered to the sadomasochistic male lover w [...]

      It was as if Leopold Von Sacher Masoch s translator was assigned to use the words dilettante , suprasensual , and ermine as many times as humanly possible in the course of 100 pages to lazily tell a story about a man who wants to be his lover s slave The most intersting part of the book is its introduction, in which it is made known that the author lived out his own character s fantasies when a woman copied Wanda s letter and made Sacher Masoch her slave Hopefully, they weren t as boring as thei [...]

      This book is much disadvantaged by being grouped with the books of the Marquis de Sade It isn t a masterpiece per se, and it does have that unfinished draft air, but it was interesting and grabbed my attention all through the plot, and I don t think I felt bored or extremely disgusted while reading What surprised me most was how the book in some parts was actually very emotional and soft in ways I couldn t explain or comprehend.

    17. Christina on said:

      This book is great, short as it is And I was hankering to try another book on the topic of female domination after reading Permanent Obscurity by Richard Perez, which I truly enjoyed Venus in Furs starts out a little stiffly but ups the ante as Severin gets himself into trouble than he bargained for Yeah, my word of caution to all you would be male slaves out there Be careful what you wish for If your dream is be debased, be prepared when it happens Come to think of it, it reads like a cautiona [...]

      So I finally picked this back up and I remembered why I stopped reading it This guy is just such a PUSSY Nothing against Leopold, or pussy, one of the most powerful things on Earth he wrote a pretty progressive book for his time But JeeeZeus Anyways, I doubt my 1 star will hurt the ratings of this masterpiece And I really do respect it as a masterpiece, due to the era in which it was written But the Mona Lisa is also a masterpiece that s not very impressive 600 years later.

    19. Raphael Lysander on said:

      It s a bewildering thing how a man who imagine himself as women s slave and dog, and kneels under their feet still finds a way to talk in a sexism way and supercilious manner about women Still, this book is by far better than 50 Shades because it s not just short messages, teenage crush, or sexual descriptions This book clearly shows the mentality behind such a desire, the passion, love whether it exist in such case or not , not merely a porn in text.

      I adored this book I initially was worried that it would be too simplistic in its approach to sexuality, kink, and dominance submissiveness in sexuality much as early science fiction books are sometimes are the epitomies of genre cliches regarding time travel, this book could easily have fallen into a genre cliche of the female with the whip And from what I had first encountered, I had plenty of reason to be expecting this.For one, it is no secret that this book contains such an extreme depictio [...]

      One of the goofiest things I ve ever read So many reversals on top of reversals Such impassioned torrid writing And yet it s all basically about a guy and his specific fetishes and how he can t distinguish an approximation of a fantasy, instantiated in reality from the fantasy itself He keeps asking his lover to do the stuff he fantasizes about, but then when the situation starts to involve her free will and she doesn t do exactly what her fantasy equivalent would, he s like what the hell is thi [...]

      I often find that I will initially be enthralled by a new book but, as I read on, my attention will begin to flag, and my interest wane Venus in Furs, however, was different Yes, I was hooked from the very first pages And yes, I began to get not bored, per se, but apprehensive about halfway through Apprehensive, as in maybe this isn t really as good as I thought maybe my expectations were too high.But upon reaching the conclusion of the novel an ending which, I must admit, I did not anticipate a [...]

      This book is a fascinating, if a bit unsettling, exploration of the aberrant relationships that can exist between the sexes I ve always been somewhat surprised that so few people seem to have read it they may have heard of it, or know vague details as to the plot, which is still infamous even by today s standards, but it does tend to get overlooked as one of the great books of its time period Personally, I d recommend it highly, if for no other reason than to experience the subversive look at l [...]
