Diary of a Submissive -- A Review



The “real” Fifty Shades of Grey…A true life erotic story of female submission to rival The Story of O.
In Diary of a Submissive, Sophie Morgan candidly explains what exactly an independent, 21st century woman gets out of relinquishing her power and personal freedom in a submissive relationship with a dominant man for their mutual sexual pleasure.
In the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey, here is a memoir that offers the real story of what is means to be a submissive and follows Sophie’s story as she progresses from her early erotic experiences through to experimenting with her newfound awakened sexuality.  From the endorphin rush of her first spanking right through to being collared, she explains in frank and explicit fashion her sexual explorations.  But it isn’t until she meets James, a real life ‘Christian Grey,’ that her boundaries and sexual fetishism are really pushed. As her relationship with James travels into darker and darker places, the question becomes: Where will it end? Can Sophie reconcile her sexuality with the rest of her life, and is it possible for the perfect man to be perfectly cruel?
Daring, controversial, and sensual, Diary of a Submissive is filled with a captivating warmth and astounding honesty such that no one— man or woman—will be able to put Sophie's story down. Once you read the book you will understand why Sophie Morgan is a pseudonym.

My Thoughts:
Fifty Shades of Grey has really brought erotica to the mainstream.  In all my years of reading books, I can't recall there ever being a time where people would sit around talking about D/s relationship.  My own husband bought me the Fifty Shades trilogy and after I read them a time or two, I loaned them out to my bestie with the words "You have to read these. OMG".   I was enthralled with the D/s lifestyle but more so the love story that was etched into the story.   While I was equally captured in Diary of a Submissive, it was more in a train-wreck reaction.  I couldn't help but keep reading even as I sometimes cringed.  Sophie is quite explicit in her details and the way she allows her boundaries to be pushed.  I found myself shrinking back in my chair and wishing she would "safe word" at times.  Ironically it wasn't the physically bruising things that made me wish she would stop it all, it was the demeaning and humiliating times that I couldn't believe she would go thru with.  My stomach would turn and I wanted to reach thru the pages and tell her- Don't go thru with it.  Perhaps it was the fact that there was no love story in the beginning relationship.  A friends w/ benefits situation turned into a threesome made me unable to imagine allowing such things with someone that I did not completely love and trust beyond all.  
What amazed me the most was that while many of the same things happened in both books (50 shades & Diary of a Submissive), the way I felt about them was completely different in each.   I am looking forward to reading what others thought after reading this for the BlogHer Book Club and I hope you'll join in on the discussions as well!


 Happy Reading !
