Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch was an Austrian writer of fiction and short stories, who inspired the clinical category of 'masochism'. His complex sexual fantasies, involving the love of pain and submission, ignited a once secretive pursuit into that of a recognised fetish. His masterpiece inspired a famous song of the same name by The Velvet Underground, and continues to be referred to as a defining work within the realm of erotic literature.
