British peer of the realm Lord Drialys, eager to learn if his transatlantic cousins practice the sweeping art of rod and birch and all manner of lasciviousness that flows therefrom, embarks on a grand tour of three of the USA's most famous cities. Using his wealth and rakish charms he manages to familiarise himself with the whims and fancies of the flagellation loving belles of each city, savouring the singular pleasures a chastised posterior presents. Drialys spanks, birches, whips, and rods his way through a multitude of underground clubs, secret societies, and 'massage institutes', and a gaggle of wealthy ladies, débutantes, and dominatrices, confirming his strong suspicion that Americans are just as decadent and debauched as the British. Volume III, the final book in The Beautiful Flagellants trilogy, describes our main protagonist's journey as he finally arrives in the Big Apple and his thrill at bearing witness and partaking in its rising caning scene; no young bottom being safe when Lord Drialys 'blood' is up. This graphically written once-banned classic will make a fine addition to any collection of Victorian erotica and S&M literature. Volumes I and II, set in Chicago and Boston, are also available from Locus Elm Press. Oh my!
