Whipped Slave Woman

Here’s a sobering reminder of the fact that the memes we play with in the BDSM world are vestigial artifacts of a brutal era when whips and bondage had no connection to anything safe, sane, and consensual:

    I am so happy that you have this image on your webpage. I was searching for a color image. This is in a reading packet that I had from an undergraduate course I took. As a Masters student in English Literature, this image has an even greater importance: It was engraved (illustrated and watercolored) by the great William Blake. William Blake is nothing less than the greatest British poet, artist, and visionary ever lived.
