Unfortunately a lot of hackwork pornography is written by those who don’t share the fantasy, and they slip into hideous violence and ugliness, thinking the market wants all beautj, when the market never really did. 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 a If you’re looking for a good BDSM fiction, this is it.

Laurent continues to dominate, when he is placed in the pony stalls for a year. In the final volume of Anne Rice’s deliciously tantalizing erotic trilogy, Beauty’s eleeping on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of the harem. I’ve mapped out my emotional progression from the beginning to end: Pardon me, but even in porn I want to like, or identify with, at least one character.

Anyway, despite the rape and all the nakedness Beauty had to endure, I had continued hoping that Anne Rice could offer me something sweeter.


It was frightening to realize, and yet I felt like it was a breakthrough to know Are those tears of joy I see running down your face? Feb 08, Dd rated it did not like it. View all 60 comments. Aren’t we supposed to abandon beautty preconceptions when opening a book?

I’m grateful the Beauty books have been embraced and sustained over the years. So yeah WTH right? I’m a firm believer in “different strokes for different folks”. I’d say it is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in bdsm.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A. N. Roquelaure, Anne Rice | : Books

Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. And look at this Prince Roquelaute I was hoping for a more grown up version of the classic Sleeping Beauty tale. The trilogy was written in the s when many feminists denounced pornography as violation of women’s rights, but Rice firmly believed that women should have the freedom to read and write whatever they pleased, and considered the trilogy her political statement.

It’s like when you catch an espisode of The Love Boat and you realize that show was really sexist and kinda terrible – but when you watched it when it originally aired you didn’t see any of that. Sex plays a major roll in life too.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty was the worst book I’ve read all freaking year.

This slavery, according to the book several times, is supposed to teach the slaves patience, humility, etc. He cut the sleeves away, lifting her ever so gently to free the cloth, and the weight of her hair seemed to pull her head down over his arms, and her mouth opened just a little bit wider.


I began to understand the story fully. Awakened with a kiss, or? Strawberry Reviews rated it did not like it Shelves: Sleeping Beauty 4 books. Again, not sexy at all! Afterward Laurent and Tristan are taken to the Sultan, sn to perform a mutual fellatio on each other in his presence, and then the Sultan anally copulates with Beahty.

Sleeping Beauty Trilogy

That’s all for now, Ta-Ta!! I went through the blurb of this book again to see if sleping book was a parody of fairytales and BDSM. I’ve never read the word “spank” as many times as I have in this book because it’s noted on almost slee;ing single page. He just wanted her naked all the time. It made me realize how exciting public humiliation of a woman was to me.

This slavery is supposed to make these captive “tributes” better, and their tenures are supposed to be temporary.

So that’s doubly not fun for me. Professor Linda Rouelaure of Middle Tennessee State University wrote in her book Writing Horror and the Body on the trilogy, that rewriting the myth of Sleeping Beauty as sadomasochistic fantasies enabled Anne Rice to explore “liminal areas of experience that could not be articulated in conventional literature, extant pornography, or politically correct discourse”.
