One of the most widely read novels of the 20th century, W. Somerset Maugham´s masterpiece, Of Human Bondage, gives a harrowing depiction of unrequited love. Philip Carey, a sensitive orphan born with a clubfoot, finds himself in desperate need of passion and inspiration. He abandons his studies to travel, first to Heidelberg and then to Paris, where he nurses ambitions of becoming a great artist. Philip´s youthful idealism erodes, however, as he comes face-to-face with his own mediocrity and lack of impact on the world. After returning to London to study medicine, he becomes wildly infatuated with Mildred, a vulgar, tawdry waitress, and begins a doomed love affair that will change the course of his life. First published in 1915, the semi-autobiographical Of Human Bondage combines the values left over from the Victorian era with the prevailing irony and despair of the early 20th century. Unsentimental yet bursting with deep feeling, Of Human Bondage remains Maugham´s most complete statement of the importance of physical and spiritual liberty, a theme that resounds more loudly than ever today. 1.

The lovely redhead Hazel is a small town girl with exactly the innocence and charm that Miles Hetherington is looking for. Under his influence, the naive 22 year old gives in to her repressed sexual desires, and when Miles invites her to work for him at his London Hotel she jumps at the chance. What Hazel doesn´t realise is that Miles is an experienced Master with the intention of turning her into a full time sexual slave to serve at his newest enterprise, Bondage Hotel. She´ll be trained to serve as maid, waitress and sexual toy for the wealthy guests. As one of several hotel slaves, she´ll be tethered to a ceiling track running through every room. Any sign of resistance will be punished with cruel efficiency until she learns to obey. As a frightened Hazel tours the unique facilities of Bondage Hotel while stringently locked into steel cuffs, she shudders at the sight of Miles´ fully-equipped bondage dungeon. The trembling girl is horrified to discover that her body and mind respond with shameful excitement to the stark reality of her plight. To her shame, she cannot hide or deny her unwanted arousal. As Hazel´s training continues, her conditioned sexual responses grow even stronger until she is forced to accept that her slavery is no longer against her will, and that her submission to Miles brings her more fulfilment than she had ever dreamed possible. Soon there are more unsuspecting females joining Hazel at Bondage Hotel. As their lives entwine, they suffer the pain of stringent bondage, exacting discipline, slave positions, pony girl training and savage punishment, while relishing the wild pleasures of both straight and lesbian sex. 1.
