The Passion of Cleopatra If we define erotica as the mere suggestion of the sex act, whereas pornography comprises descriptive and graphic depictions of sex scenes, then this book is pornography. Princes and Princesses are sent as tributes to serve as sex slaves to the Crowned Queen, in order to maintain an alliance.

What the hell is happening??? I’m grateful the Beauty books have been embraced trilpgy sustained over the years. I also went all the way with exploring the mind-set of sadomasochism as I saw it, letting the fantasy characters talk in depth about what they felt and what they enjoyed and what thrilled them as they were humiliated and overwhelmed.

I get how it’s empowering to trust someone else to that extent and to test limits. One night, handsome Prince Alexi, seeks her out to tell her his story of submission. As a man who has been at the receiving end of responsible BDSM, I can attest to the truth of these words.

In the hrilogy chapter of the story, Beauty is awakened from her hundred-year sleep by the Prince, not with a kiss, but through copulation, initiating her into a Satyricon -like world of sexual adventures.

I was hoping for a more grown up version of the classic Sleeping Beauty tale.

Her flaxen hair lay long and straight over the deep green velvet of her bed, and her dress in loose folds revealed the rounded breasts and limbs of a young woman. She felt as if someone were pressing her there, trying to enter her, as if her navel had become a vagina tri,ogy And boy, are those some sick thoughts!

The Prince had all his young trrilogy know the story of Sleeping Beauty, cursed to sleep for a hundred years, with her parents, the King and Queen, and all of the Court, after pricking her finger on a spindle. Otherwise – stay away. Yet it’s triogy “romantic. View all 28 comments.

Interesting background and lots of creative naughty bits for fun. Kink, sex, debauchery, lust, love- twisted. Now, I will not tell you the what happened in this series. And not only is there sadism in this book, none of it is consenting.

The fairytale, Sleeping Beauty, is used merely as a starting point, the story goes off on a tangent within the first few pages and then we’re taken into the neighbouring kingdom with all its twisted customs.

Anne Rice (Writing as A. N. Roquelaure) – The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy

We know nothing of her character to start with – whether she was modest, chaste, loving, kind, whatever, so it’s hard to see her as a person to begin with since her character is so cardboard.

I am not a prude by any stretch, I just think this is not the book or subject matter for me.
