BDSM literature

Following the post about Fifty shades of Grey by E.L.James this one contents a choice of basic references of BDSM related literature.

First of all I should mention some of the Marquis de Sade works like Juliette (1801), The 120 Days of Sodom / Les 120 journées de Sodome (1785), Philosophy in the Bedroom / La philosophie dans le boudoir (1795) or Justine or the Misfortunes of Virtue / Justine ou les malheurs de la vertu (1791).

Reage Histoire d'O The story of o

Also deserves mention as a head reference Sacher Masoch’s Venus in Furs (1870).
However, the main reference of BDSM literature is the Story of O / Histoire d’O by Pauline Réage (1954), continued by Return to the Chateau / Retour à Roissy.
Other literary references between eighteenth and early twentieth century:
-      N.E. Rétif: Le pied de Fanchette (1769)
-      John Davidson: A Full and True Account of the Wonderful Mission of Earl Lavender (1895)
-      Octave Mirbeau: The torture garden / Le jardin des supplices (1899)
-      Georges Bataille: Story of the Eye / Histoire de l’oeil (1928)
-      Between 1917 and 1939 was published in Paris, France, a collection of BDSM novels (the Collection des orties blanches) including nearly fifty titles

In Anne Rice’s books it is easy to find BDSM suggestions (that become explicit in her Sleeping Beauty trilogy, 1983-1985). Also, many people connect John Norman’s Chronicles of Gor (published since 1966) with BDSM. Finally I would like to mention the books of Yolanda Celbridge (a prolific collective pseudonym) as very representative of a literary subgenre called BDSM romance.
