If you've ever been curious about where the term "masochism" comes from, you will find it laden in the pages of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's masterpiece, Venus in Furs, for whom the term was named. Drawn in part from his own life experiences, Sacher-Masoch's novel develops an eroticism unlike any other. The book's protagonist, Severin, is so infatuated and obsessed with the object of his desire, Wanda, that he asks to be her slave. Although hesitant at first, Wanda's treatment of Severin becomes more and more depraved, fueling Severin's own desires for cruelty.

"Great Classic Erotica, Terrible Narration"
Author yes, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Voice no Patrick Downer. The short historical intro was very good!
I loved and hated them all :) The characters were great and terrible at the same time. the writing of this classic is amazing and to prose to die for.
Whiny over acted voices. I had to buy a physical copy to make it through the text. this was one of the worse voice acting jobs I have heard. It was accurate and well pronounced but detracted from the story.
The author is dead!
Please rerecord this classic with another narrator and comp it to me over this rough version.
"stupid and boring."
this was rediculous. I fast forwarded most of it, then deleted all together. Going from chapter to chapter, story never changed
"Waste of time"
It was uncomfortable to listen to well-known celebrity voicing this type of content.
I can't imagine anyone being entertained by the content here
