Butterfly Scarlet RisqueVenus in Furs—the standard on masochism—inflames my imagination. Butterfly is a retelling of this age-old story, a contemporary version of a classic tale.

Times have changed since the story was written. Slavery is illegal. But women still enslave men in love, and passion still rules hearts and minds. Now, to submit is not to become a literal slave as was demanded of Severin in the novella; to submit is to be a minion. One is free to make the choice to be a minion, or not.

Choosing to be a minion means accepting the will of a superior being over one’s life. By reading Butterfly you are choosing to participate in this story, choosing to enter the world of a minion.

Pain and pleasure are one and the same. Read on and be rewarded. . . .
