In the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey, here is a memoir that offers the real story of what is means to be a submissive and follows Sophie’s story as she progresses from her early erotic experiences through to experimenting with her new found awakened sexuality. From the endorphin rush of her first spanking right through to being collared, she explains in frank and explicit fashion her sexual explorations. But it isn’t until she meets James, a real life ‘Christian Grey,’ that her boundaries and sexual fetishism are really pushed. As her relationship with James travels into darker and darker places, the question becomes: Where will it end? Can Sophie reconcile her sexuality with the rest of her life, and is it possible for the perfect man to be perfectly cruel?
Daring, controversial, and sensual, Diary of a Submissive is filled with a captivating warmth and astounding honesty such that no one— man or woman—will be able to put Sophie’s story down.
First of all I picked up this book thinking I would get some insight. After reading 50 shades, I was intrigued with, the idea of what would make someone want to be in a submissive/dominant relationship? I love looking into peoples brains and trying to figure out what makes people tick. And I have to say I still can’t really wrap my head around why someone would want to be punished, degraded, diminished for pleasure? I am not judging I just can’t wrap my own vanilla mind around it.
While the book didn’t really offer any insights as to why the author Sophie enjoys being a submissive, there are no horrors in her past “normal” up bring etc I did enjoy the book. It wasn’t a book that I just had to finish right away; I picked it up and put it down several times. I took me longer to get through than I would normally have for a book its size but with that said there are some books that it’s just a little weird reading while your dad is sitting in your living room, and the author is being flogged into orgasm just sayin’. I found Sophie interesting, I wish there was a little more psychology to the background a bit but that’s just me. I was looking for what makes her tick and came away disappointed.
I would give this 3.5 stars
