When a young woman moves to London, leaving behind her sheltered life in Hungary, she stumbles across the world of submission. Out of a desperate need for money as well as deeper motives that become apparent, she resolves to explore this strange and often violent subculture. This is her astonishing true account of the events that followed. Under her alias, Shana Shine she reveals the reality of life as a submissive - the comic role-plays, discipline, humiliation and beatings. The centrepiece of the book is a bizarre 'love' relationship she forms with one of her clients, a well-kwn and respected businessman. Candid, often humorous, and sometimes disturbing, Shana's memoir is an unforgettable journey and a moving insight as to why one woman would decide on a life of corporal pain.
