Mimi Cabell O, 2012

Based on Pauline Réage's "Story of O," this video references the training that O, the titular protagonist in the novel, undergoes to become a sexual slave. After she has completed the first stage of her training, the rules that will govern the rest of her life are dictated to her — she must be available for anyone who may wish to use her, and she may never again cross her legs or close her lips. "O" hypothesizes this experience, and demonstrates the story of use and preparation that "Story of O" tells.
