Goliath Books is a Berlin based publisher that specializes in historical erotica, and they have a new volume fresh off the presses called A History of Sexual Punishment. We've featured Goliath several times, and their releases are always top quality. This new volume continues the trend with 272 pages of art and text related to spanking, flogging, and other outré practices designed to whip up a little excitement in your private life. These activities go as far back in the historical record as one cares to look and survive into our modern age, which the book takes pains to document, using examples ranging from old ink prints to modern photography.
The release is a sort of cousin to Goliath's 2018 book Marquis De Sade - 100 Erotic Illustrations, and the fact that they've circled back to the subject matter perhaps hints at the high level of interest out there about it. How high, you ask? Some surveys say 85% of adults in the U.S. have tried some form of bsdm (spanking, bondage, blindfolds, etc.), so you're not quite as weird as you thought you were, sadly. We have a few interior scans from the book below that amply get the idea of its contents across. And feel free to have a look at both the De Sade book here, and Goliath's two modern bondage collections here and here. Spank you very much.
