This is all we are. This is all sex is. The attempted obliteration of the self. That's why it's so brutal. All there is the plane of nature. It was what was before and will always be, and our complete annihilation, this leisurely murdered world, is after all, what is.Bluebeard invites you into his chamber to share in the violent passion of his deviant sexual acts. Will he excite you? Will he seduce you? Will he love you to death?With its provocative, intelligently handled exploration of sexually motivated violence, Bluebeard is a psycho-sexual, stark and violent reimagining of the famous fairy-tale.
