The Romance of Chastisement

A little Ebay find. 

Rare book containing whippings, flagellation and spanking. Could be an interesting read. A tad expensive though.

Have a good week.

Great book Ronnie, I hope my wife does not see it. Just might give her ideas she don't need.

I don't think this kind of literature exists in Dutch. Those Victorians must have been something special.
Don't think much has changed.
Thanks for the find, but I agree it is a bit expensive.

PK said...

I'm betting something like this exist in all literature at some time (but probably well hidden). Ronnie I don't know where you find these things. Very interesting.

What a find! Could it increase in value, one wonders.... A lovely old book though. The Victorians surely did love their flagellatory pursuits! (Not even sure if that's a real word!)

Ami - Could increase in value.

I'm sure flagellatory is a word but if it isn't, it should be:) Thanks Ami.

Love,
