O (Corinne Clery) is already pretty obedient to her boyfriend René (Udo Kier), but to turn her into the perfect submissive, René still sees it fit that she is sent to a special house in Roissy, where women are whipped, taken by a variety of men (often in gangbangs) and degraded until they become perfect lofeslaves. O undergoes all this out of love to René, and each whipping, gangbang and degradation (she thinks) brings her closer to him.

Once back out, she really is his perfect loveslave, but then he starts renting her out to Sir Stephen (Anthony Steel), a man whom O detests at first, while René shows more and more interest into one of O's models, Jacqueline (Li Sellgren). Soon, René's plan becomes obvious: He wants O to soften up Jacqueline for him while O is supposed to become the loveslave of Sir Stephen. By now though O is so much of a submissive that she doesn't complain one bit, instead does as she's told - to a point where she seduces Jacqueline in René's bed, while for Sir Stephen she enters another, er, educatinal facility, Anne-Marie's (Christiane Minazzoli) house, where she learns even more about being a submissive and is ultimately even branded.

Once back from that place, O is so much of a submissive that she even dem,ands to be whipped, to scare off Ivan (Alain Noury), a young, innocent and squarre man who wants to take her away from all this.

At the end of the film, O has found happiness with Sir Stephen, and she sends Jacqueline to the house in Roissy, where she is to be broken in for René ...


A typical piece of 1970's high-gloss erotica (of which director Just Jaeckin made quite a few, see e.g. Emmanuelle), that tries to hide its inherent sleaze behind a tasteful facade, posh sets, perfect lighting and (hilariously absurd) erotic philosophy. Somehow though, sleaze is sleaze by any name, and all attempts to hide that are simply ridiculous (but not necessarily in a good way). That this film fares a bit better than other similar fare (e.g. above mentioned Emmanuelle) is mainly due to the fact that Corinne Clery - though not much of an actress - looks ravishing in this one, and the audience gets many chances to see her nude. Of course, that's not enough to carry the film ... but believe me, it's better than nothing.
