Got this link from a friend, I read it carefully. Yes, women authors, male dominated writing world, etc. It reminds me a book about Story of O, and Susan Sontag’s essay about Story of O.

First, Sontag was not discussing the author of Story of O. When the essay was written, it was 1967, the author is still a mystery. On the other hand, Susan Sontag was talking about how serious pornographic fictions are.

There is a fairly new book entitled Dominique Aury, the woman behind the Story of O. It shows that the author was a woman. From this point of view, I think it changes a lot in the picture. At least, if we are lucky to have Susan Sontag present, she will write so different on this book, all because the pornographic book’s author is a woman!!!
