Synopsis
A historical overview of sadomasochism and the relationships between tops (masters) and bottoms (slaves). By examining the work of Marquis de Sade, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Richard von Kraftt-Ebing and Erich Fromm, the history of the movement is contextualized. In addition, the relationship between contemporary Toronto sadomasochists Robert and Mary Dante is examined.
