"Poppy wanted something else to join the surface pain. A new spirit in possession of her young body began to speak. It said, 'Take me.' 'What?' the baroness gasped. 'Take me - please.' 'I - I have flogged you raw. And yet you still submit yourself.'
For her art, Poppy seeks out and recreates the heights of submission and domination. Each sculpture she creates is taken from life - a life of total sensual freedom where she meets a strange cast of brutal lovers. From strangers in restaurants to skin illustrators, from a baroness to a uniformed society of fetishists, Poppy experiences obedience and tastes power. The result is her Submission Gallery. Where the quest for knowledge will lead, and to whom, remains a mystery to Poppy. But behind the scenes of her journey and the art it produces, the world's most bizarre collector waits to seize the greatest artefact of all - the artist herself. By the author of Rites of Obedience.
