Book one of many to come with B.D.S.M in it.

Well since I've been reading Mary Wollstonecraft, its been a bit boring, but I found interesting is that, she is suppose to be a feminist person. Yet almost every ten pages or so, there is BDSM parts in it. Ironic huh. Well I guess I'm researching my books now, to see how much BDSM is in them. So here we go on the first book.


Mary Wollstonecraft: A Revolutionary life by Janet Todd

  1. Page 185- In the next anecdote, a dragon, prevented from enjoying his nightly visits to a naked lady, found her out and ' with the folds of his body having first bound her hands and arms, he lashed the calves of her legs, with the end of his tail; expressing by this means a gentle and loving anger!

  2. Page 228- 'Call you this Liberte?-?- I feel it to be bondage- to be Slavery Personified- and e'er long expect to rad that Bastile is rebuilt to ornament the banks of the Thames'.

  3. Page 233- Imlay pursued her, letting her feel some dominance.

  4. Page 235- In London her reading had been dominated by review work.

  5. Page 235- With its portrayal of open desire, boudoir fetishes, and the titillating signs of sexuality, it was certainly the first book in which Wollstonecraft could have grasped not the sex act but the emotional, almost religious intensity of sex.

  6. Page 244- She had mad Moore's work back in London, found his travel writing 'ingenious', and his sadistic novel Zeluco full of 'Sound principles'.

  7. Page 252- Helen Maria Williams was filling her chronicles with the killings of the jacobin regime, individual acts of capricious sadism, state executions and vicious mass drawings in fake-bottomed boats in icy rivers.

  8. Page 269- 'I still continue to be almost a slave to the child,'she lamented.

  9. Page 270- She has now the advantage of having two good nurses, and I am at present able to discharge my duty to her, without being the slave of it. Next line in the book--- So, no longer the 'slave' to Fanny, she cheered up considerably.

  10. Page 276- “The common run of men have such an ignoble way of thinking, that, if they debauch their hearts, and prostitute their persons, following perhaps a gust of inebriation, they suppose the wife, slave rather, whom they maintain, has no right to complain, and ought to receive the sultan, whenever he deigns to return, with open arms, though his have been polluted by half an hundred promiscuous amours during his absence.”

  11. Page 313- She also showed little knowledge of masochism:”Who can caress a man, with true feminine softness at the very moment when he treats her tyrannically. Nature never dictates such insincerity,” she wrote in The Rights of Woman.

  12. Page 344-When Madeleine Schweitzer, her friend in Paris, lamented her dominating manner with equals, she remarked,' to her servants, inferiors, and the wretched in general she was gentle as an angel'.

  13. Page 352- She was not helped by Rousseau's insight, that adult sexuality, which seemed to require an imaginative transformation into an equal relationship of different beings, constantly became a tussle of domination and subordination.

  14. Page 383- In The Rights of Woman Wollstonecraft had blamed women for preying on themselves and others; concentrating more on material oppression, she now portrayed them less as weak tyrants than as slaves and victims.

  15. Page 434- The judge is unsympathetic, regarding marriage as naturalising male dominance and the law as supporting it, though the latter 'might bear a little hard on a few.'

  16. Page 435- A week later, she wrote to persuade Godwin to visit Johnson, adding coyly, when I press any thing it is always with a true wifish submission to your judgment and inclination.

  17. Page 05- Edward Wollstonecraft was a despot in his domestic kingdom, dominating the resentful childhood of his daughter, who would note her own mercurial moods and quick temper while never admitting the resemblance- though later she compared herself to Lear, that childish tyrant with three daughters.'

  18. Page 05- Elizabeth Wollstonecraft's chosen response of submission did not predispose her to appreciate other victims and she and her eldest girl took no comfort in joint subjection

  19. Page 05- The pairs of marriage were engraved on Mary's mind in this demeaning tie of father-tyrant and mother-slave, and the authority this mother naturally had over her was tainted by the vision of improper submission.

  20. Page 06- It was the immediate nuclear family that dominated her early life and lover life, when the disappointed her she had no obvious place to turn.'

  21. Page 08- In her public works he entered as tyrant, the embodiment of improper masculinity and weak despotic power, but also a yearning for a complicated tainted love which had as much submission as sustenance within it.

  22. Page 09- At the beginning of the century its society was dominated by country families who kept large detached mansions.

  23. Page 18- The huge Whitmore House was run by sadistic and grasping keepers, but this only became known later.

  24. Page 18- both rich and poor could be cruelly treated, the former debauched into idiocy, the later degraded into submission.

  25. Page 26- Mrs Wollstonecraft might not lover her best but, without Ned, needed her dominant eldest daughter to help keep peace at home and manage her increasingly irascible spouse.

  26. Page 41- For Fanny was no longer the 'instructor' and, now that they were together, dominance was shifting from the skilled friend to the assertive Mary who had already earned her own living outside the home.

  27. Page 42- Within the Blood menage she could give free reign to her dominating personality and with her parents, Fanny's younger brother George and sister Caroline, she was soon 'first', as she had never been in her own better-place family; each treated her with the most gratifying respect.

  28. Page 42-43- having been sensitised to tyranny and submission in her own dysfunctional family, she hated to see Mrs Blood maneuvering to keep the peace by carefully handling a man who contributed nothing to the general welfare.

  29. Page45-46- She did not wait to make her analysis but equated Meredith Bishop with the dominating Edward Wollstonecraft- probably hearing of his sexual demands since she mentioned his need of 'gratification'.

  30. Page 49- Her friend was always on her side but Mary must have suspected that the events of these days were testing her loyalty and that she might not be the best solicitor for a recalcitrant wife and her dominating sister.

  31. Page 50- She had wanted her mother's protection and not received it; she had admired Fanny Blood but now realised her own dominating spirit.

  32. Page 60- Also, many of the women writers who would dominate Wollstonecraft's era, Frances Bernay, maria Edgeworth, Hannah More, Germaine de Stael, and Jane Austen, had intellectual ties with fathers.

  33. Page 82- In its practice she perceived tyranny and slavery to convention.

  34. Page 87- But the clever, talkative and dominating Lady Kingsborough, disappointed her, and she realised the impossibility of their being fellows in anything.

  35. Page 102- In Rousseau's approach the (boy) child ought not to be oppressed into good behaviour but led to adult rational morality and goodness through his senses and needs:'there must be no submission to authority if you would have no submission to convention [later]'.

  36. Page 112- The preface even repudiated the most culturally respectable fiction Richardson's Clarissa, which presented a 'strong woman implacably defending her chastity and integrity through submission and self- destruction; it left out intellect, Wollstonecraft thought.

  37. Page 135- As an adult, Wollstonecraft hated the fuss and bondage of female dress; it was worse for a child and she graphically described little Mary struggling within a pair of stiff stays constructed of bones so tight she could hardly breathe.

  38. Page 153- Speaking forcefully, often caustically, with a heavy German accent, he must have been a dominating presence at the dinner table.

  39. Page 156- Fuseli prated much of his appetites, and was at the time he associated with Wollstonecraft painting his wife Sophia as domestic wife and dominatrix- perhaps he needed to believe that no single woman could be enough for him.

  40. Page 158- Her first mention of a 'lingering' sickness had been in response to the powerful effect of her dominating father when she was a girl.

  41. Page 162- In dissenting and liberal circles these aims were commonplace, but they became ominous through Price's vision of 'THIRTY MILLION' of [French] people, indignant and resolute, spurning slavery and demanding liberty with an irresistible voice; their king led in triumph, and an arbitrary monarch surrendering himself to his subjects.'

  42. Page 165- Burke was a 'chivalrous knight', owing proud submission to helpless ladies born to inspire 'pleasing sensations' in men.

  43. Page 168- How deeply must it wound the feelings of a chivalrous knight, who owes the fealty of 'proud submission and dignified obedience' to the fair sex, to perceive that two of the boldest of his adversaries are women!

  44. Page 171- Probably friend did not find her the job, which may have come through an agency, the sort dismissed as a slave market for the 'governess-trade' by the refined Jane Fairfax in Austen's Emma or perhaps through the news- papers, which advertised for companions and teachers.

  45. Page 172- He was all submission to her but she remained cool:[I] have said all I can say to rouse him but where can he go in his present plight?'

  46. Page 181- Madame de Genlis inculcated 'blind submission to parents'; her works were full of obstinate prejudices, and absurd rules of conduct'.

  47. Page 181- Women should glory in a weakness that allowed them mastery and sexual submission.

  48. Page 182- Women should not be slaves to 'love or lust'; Rousseau should not make them in this debased image.


Also I would like to add to this is that she has put so many of the same words into the book, and here they are- domestic,erotic,masculine,feminine, despotic, sexual, power, society, and weakness. There are probably more in this book but these are the ones I caught while reading it twice.



Hope you enjoy this. :)
