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.
"Feminist and British journalist 'Sophie Morgan' describes her journey into role-play romance, a chronicle of the psychosexually complex unfolding of her identity as a masochist and submissive. A work of top-notch erotica, this diary is also occasionally laugh-out-loud funny as the author weaves around the undeniable sweetness of love with the pain and humiliation she deeply craves during sex. Sophie's big love is a self-assured and wealthy stockbroker who naturally excels at the power dynamic she craves. Beginning with a vignette that will make readers feel like voyeurs of the author's domination/submission fantasy, this book will pull or catapult anyone who picks it up straight into Sophie's world. Bisexual submission, threesomes, orgasm denial, phone-sex masochism are among the many vividly drawn scenes of Sophie's adventures that will pique the interest, and probably the desire, of anyone intrepid enough to pick up the book.

About the Author
Sophie Morgan is in her early 30s. She is working hard at a career she loves as a journalist and is surrounded by friends and amused and exasperated by her family in about equal measure. Loves animals and Marmite, hates people who stop abruptly when walking down the street so you walk into them, and spends too much money on books, DVDs and handbags, mostly in that order. The one thing missing in her life is someone to share it— and she wants that someone to dominate her sexually, as well as help sort the recycling.
