Suspension Bondage, A BDSM Novel by Chris Bellows
Sunny Sudenskaya is a mischievous eighteen year old, who has just emigrated to the United States from Eastern Europe—illegally. The nymph-like beauty has perfected her talent for oral gratification, exchanging blow-jobs for passage to her new life in the US. But she’s looking for far more than oral sex to satisfy her carnal needs. Sunny has a penchant for masochism. Her desire? A modernized version of an ancient African tribal torture that employs an intricate means of suspension bondage. All she needs now is the right sadist to carry out her cherished fantasies for extreme submission.
She seeks out Dr. Winthrop Samuels, a medical professional who’s been known to enjoy bdsm as a recreational pursuit. While cautious in making any commitment to the girl, he can’t resist her beguiling charm. He soon proceeds with the elaborate and most unique bondage apparatus that is required. In painstaking and methodical steps, he’ll take the unsuspecting Sunny far further into the extreme bondage fantasy than she ever expected to go, as she becomes the doctor’s hanging trinket.
Sunny and Dr. Samuels will soon be joined in their unusual bdsm pursuits, by female dominant Henrietta Anderson and her feminized male maid Kim.

Suspension Bondage by Chris Bellows
Reviewed by Tobias Tanner
This novel is about sadism. There is no remorse or regret, just cruelty taken to high art. It is not about suffering, or even subjugation. It is about control of one human being by another or, in this case, several other human beings. It is about molding and forming a narrow form of perfection from the rough clay that is humanity. It is about creation, not to put too fine a point on it.
Sunny Sudenskaya is a masochist with a plan. She wants to be suspended; not hung from ankles or wrists, but from perforations through her skin. Bellows has invented a tribal form of testing from Africa (arroycoo) where young men hang from hooks to prove and celebrate their manhood. His sadist (or should I say, his primary sadist?) is a physician with a reputation for creativity. He understands that Sunny is not yet a true submissive, as the idea of suspension is her own. It is a form of “topping from the bottom,” as it is called. He must teach her a truer form of her role.
There is little of the standard bondage and beating format here. Sunny is pierced with permanent grommets and taught over slow, torturous weeks to control her body as it hangs in suspension for longer and longer periods. Her humiliation is deepened by exposure to the outside world. She is denied any of the homely pleasures, wine, music, good food or anything similar. Her sadist’s control is absolute, right down to her toilet functions.
She learns to bear the pain, she learns patience. After a time, nothing matters but the inner sensations, and the needs of her handlers. She spends hour after tedious hour hanging from a fiendishly clever framework, forced to delve inward, to seek out her own soul. Her needs, however, are little more than a footnote here. Sunny becomes an object d’art, something to admire, to play with and to use, or not, depending on what other people want. She learns that there is comfort in such an arrangement. Fine art is always cherished and protected—even when that fine art is biological in nature.
Enslavement, she realizes, can be safe and warm and comforting. It must become that. Otherwise, all she’d be doing is hanging around doing nothing. And we couldn’t have that now, could we? Sunny has purpose and value at last. Does she love it? Well, maybe. This isn’t a book with answers. It is a book with technique, perhaps, and with style. But the answers are for the reader. You’ll have to make up your own mind; like Sunny did.
