Sadopaideia: Being the Experiences of Cecil Prendergast Undergraduate of the University of Oxford Shewing How he was Led Through the Pleasant Paths of Masochism to the Supreme joys of Sadism is a pornographic novel published in 1907 by "Ashantee of Edinburgh": probably Charles Carrington in Paris.[1] It was later published in the United States by Grove Press (GP-421). In two volumes, it is the story of a man who experiences both dominance and submission. It was written anonymously but Anthony Storr attributes it to Algernon Charles Swinburne.[2][3]
