I never have been more disgusted in my life after reading this book (actually I couldn't finish it). How is this even considered erotica? I mean she get kidnapped and tortured (literally). For example, in once scene, one of her captor actually pees (yes pees) into her mouth or should I say forces her to open her mouth or else they beat with a cane or a whip.

God, this book so disgusting, why did I even bother reading it. This my first book by Claire Thompson and now I'm wondering if all oher books like this.

thanks..no way in hell I'd consider that erotic! I mean, I've come a long way in what 'turns me on' or that I can'get through' but not that!

Not what I'd find erotic. Sounds disgustedly twisted to me.

I've read a few Claire Thompson's  - mostly from Ellora's Cave.   These are not as graphic as what you have described, they are more romance, with the BDSM.   I've also been to her website.   If I recall correctly, she said that she's wanted to explore the darkest sides of BDSM.

I guess, I will give her another try but I will stick with Ellora Cave books.

my friend says she''s heard of that being done in BDSM but says even her adventurous spirit 'ain't there and never will be'! I remember skimming t hrough a harold robbins book back in the day(could read those sinc ethe covers were 'decent'!) adn the guy had whipped the woman then peed on  her...of course I had no concept of what was going on and the book was 'sick' to me!

I've never understood the humiliation side of the hardcore BDSM.  I think when I read Panic Snap by Laura Reese a few years back was when I discovered I did not like the darker side of BDSM.
