it was amazing

Most of people start reading this book with different backgrounds: knowing Sade's works, after listening to Velvet Underground music, studying the psychology of masochism etc etc ... Well, in my case i just found it by accident and started reading it without knowing any of these other things. I think that this was pretty good for me since i had no idea about what to expect, or how the book would be like, and i quite liked it. Despite of the particularities that could make some more traditional or close-minded people shocked(like some dynamics or details about the author's Goddess x slave idealized relationship) the story itself is, somehow, very stimulating. One can easily find some random philosophical questions and even social critics in this book which makes the reading very interestiing.
