    General CommentThe title is a play on the classic Sacher-Masoch novella Venus In Furs. The Velvet Underground song was a direct tribute to the novella itself, which carries heavy themes of S&M. The title is a cruel double pun referencing that and Venus' historical connotation with goddesses of femininity and love. Fitting for the album that it's on.

    And Dani has a much more involved interest in overtly sexual, classical literature than anything to do with Lou Reed, just going by his track record.

    The song itself is okay. Their instrumentals can border on filler for me.

    General CommentThis song is so great. The title is, indeed, a play on the Leopold von Sacher-Masoch (the term "masochism" is actually derived from his name, like the term "sadism" is from the Marquis de Sade's name) book Venus in Furs, which heavily features themes of female domination and sadism. The connection is obvious with the screaming of (presumably) one of Elizabeth's slaves and her moans of pleasure. The real Erzsebet likely did get a sexual thrill out of the horrific torture she inflicted.
