Literature: The Ties That Bind
Le lien (Literal transition: The Link) or The Ties That Bind is an autobiographical erotic novel written by French author Vanessa Duriès and published in 1993.

Laika is a young student who has been initiated into BDSM (bondage and discipline/dominance and submission/sadism and masochism). She gradually evolves into a slave and develops a growing love relationship with her master, Pierre. She also reveals her sexual orientation to her parents, which has devastating effects on her relationship with them.

Should not be confused with the books Star Wars: Jedi Apprentice: The Ties That Bind and Ties That Bind by Guy Baldwin. Should not be confused with the Fan Fic Ties That Bind. Should not be confused with the songs The Ties That Bind by Bruce Springsteen and Ties That Bind by Alter Bridge. Should not be confused with the Andromeda episode "The Ties That Bind", the Battlestar Galactica (Reimagined) episode "The Ties That Bind", the Jeeves and Wooster episode "The Ties That Bind", the Justice League Unlimited episode "The Ties That Bind", the The O.C. episode "The Ties That Bind", the Revolution episode "Ties That Bind", theStargate SG-1 episode "The Ties That Bind", the The Vampire Diaries episode "The Ties That Bind", and the Xena: Warrior Princess episode "Ties That Bind". Should not be confused with the animated tie-in for Street Fighter IV titled Street Fighter IV The Ties That Bind. Should not be confused with the Documentary The Ties That Bind 1985, the Thriller Ties That Bind 2006, and the Made-for-TV Movie Ties That Bind 2010. Should not be confused with the Video Game The Suffering: Ties That Bind.

This book provides examples of:

  • Abusive Parents: Laika took corporal punishment from her father for the first 20 years of her life.
  • Extreme Doormat: Laika qualifies if she took corporal punishment for 20 years without complaint and willingly became a slave in BDSM.
  • Very Loosely Based on a True Story: This book is supposedly an autobiography, but there's no evidence that it did happen as it's being described.
