The role of sadism and masochism in fiction attracts serious, scholarly attention. Anthony Storr has commented that the volume of sadomasochist pornography shows that sadomasochistic interest is widespread in Western society;[1] John Kucich has noted the importance of masochism in late-19th-century British colonial fiction.[2] This article presents appearances of sadomasochism in literature and works of fiction in the various media.[3][4][5]
