Sadomasochism was the sexual phenomenon of the 1990s, a major influence on art, fashion, literature and thought. But for too long masochists themselves have taken things lying down. Now, for the first time, a writer challenges the myths about masochism to reveal a striking picture of human longing, curiosity and eroticism.
