The Diary of a Submissive
Sophie Morgan is an independent woman in her thirties with a successful journalism career. Intelligent, witty and sarcastic, she could be the girl next door.
Except that Sophie is a submissive; in the bedroom she likes to relinquish her power and personal freedom to a dominant man for their mutual pleasure.
In the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey, Diary of a Submissive is a memoir that offers the real story of what it means to be a submissive, following Sophie Morgan's story as she progresses from her early erotic experiences through to experimenting with her newfound, awakened sexuality. From the endorphin rush of her first spanking right through to punishments the likes of which she couldn't begin to imagine, she explains in frank and explicit fashion the road she travels.
But it isn't until she meets James that her boundaries are really pushed. As her relationship with him travels into darker and darker places the question becomes: where will it end? Can she reconcile her sexuality with the rest of her life and is it possible for the perfect man to also be perfectly cruel?
Racy, controversial, but always warm, fun and astoundingly honest Diary of a Submissive by Sophie Morgan is a fascinating and thought provoking look at a seemingly paradoxical side to human nature and sexuality that is hard to put down.

I would recommend this book. The style is very personal and the account very real. For me i loved the first part, I really warmed to her and the humorous, intelligent style made it an engaging read. Some of the later sections were not to my take and would have liked to read more about her emotions/thoughts as she was tasked. However, a good read and an honest, well written book- glad I brought it x (Posted on 03/11/2013)
I recently read the new book, Diary of a Submissive, which I was pleased to compare to the now infamous 50 Shades of Grey.
Sophie has written an autobiographical account of her exploration of her personal submissive nature, the blossoming of this inside her, her struggle to some kind of acceptance and her experiences along the way.
A true story, this book is both shocking in parts and heart warming in others. I did learn something important; no matter how I feel sometimes sexually, I am not submissive! Sophies journey, especially with the evil Tom and female sidekick Charlotte, did make me cringe in places - but if you love extreme female submission it will make you melt, I am sure.
Also, who doesnt like being called a slut! But thats what makes us all different I suppose!
The book takes some time to get to the main, juicy plot area but this is understandable as it is, like I say, an autobiographical account of Sophies submission. With her admittedly normal, happy upbringing, her loving parents who were supportive and yes, normal - Sophie reassures all kink and BDSM fans out there that no, you do not have to be in some way fucked up, disturbed, deranged or have a hidden dark past in order to have a leaning towards the Fetish scene or whichever orientation you find yourself disposed to in life.
I like that this point was made particularly clearly.
Sophie also is extremely honest and gives raw details about how she feels as she goes through her personal journey to acceptance of her own submissive nature. Its not always clean cut, easy, or glamorous, It can be hard, torturous, messy. It hurts.
I feel that The Diary of a Submissive is only the surface of Sophies past, but it is the relevant details and all the juicy scenes are included. From the somewhat tame Ryan at the start with such innocent explorations of hairbrush spankings, to the sadism, excitement and pure filth of Tom and Charlotte, onwards to the building of a relationship with James, Sophie shows us an unashamedly honest and detailed view into her world.
I think it is a mistake to compare this (or any other kink themed) book to 50 Shades of Grey - although I can see why in terms of marketing, it makes sense to cling on to the coat tails of the runaway sales success of EL James work. This book is not 50 Shades of Grey and should be read as a stand alone work, to give credit to the author, her work and not just that, but her actual life. Like I say this is not fiction it is someones personal journey. James (whom Sophie meets in the second half of the book) is not a real life Christian Grey, I would not insult him like that!
The Diary of a Submissive is a personal account. It is not a flight of pure fancy, nor is it page after page of the most shocking and disturbing BDSM you will ever read. It is, however, real. If you want to read about the realities of submission and how it can be for one person finding their way in an alternative sexuality, you need to give this book a whirl. (Posted on 15/11/2012)
