From the publisher: "Mistress Raven heads a staff of 14 at Pandora's Box, a 4000-square-foot, high-class Manhattan sex club that bills itself as the 'Disneyland of Domination.' Interspersed with pages made of latex, rubber, colored gels, and other erotic materials, Magnum photographer Susan Meiselas's documentary photographs of the club's highly formalized rules and rituals, its role-playing 'vacations from reality,' reveal both the customers who frequent the club and the women who command them. First commissioned to accompany the Nick Broomfield documentary Fetishes, Meiselas's Pandora's Box is a darkly captivating journey into a high-class sex club that specializes in sado-masochism."
