Product Information

Bob Flanagan grew up with Cystic Fibrosis (a genetically inherited, nearly-always fatal disease). He died at the age of 43, one of the oldest people with the disease. The physical pain of his childhood suffering was principally alleviated by masturbation and sexual experimentation, where pain and pleasure became inextricably linked, resulting in his lifelong practise of extreme masochism.

In deeply confessional interviews, Bob details his sexual practices and his extraordinary relationship with long-term partner and Mistress, photographer Sheree Rose. Through his insiders perspective on the Sado-Masochistic community, we learn firsthand about branding, piercing, whipping, bondage and endurance trials. The most extreme narratives are infused with humour, honesty and self-reflective irony.

Bob Flanagan was a critically-acclaimed poet from the Los Angeles Beyond Baroque literary scene and a performance artist. He worked on projects with visual artist Mike Kelley and the bands Sonic Youth and Nine Inch Nails. Bob was the subject matter for the highly praised film documentary Sick, winner of the Sundance Jury Award.
