The Ring of O is widely known amongst the BDSM sub-culture. First pictured in the novel "Story of O" by Pauline Réage it became very popular as a symbol of the submissives or "slaves". It is a distinctive mark used mainly in Europe and especially in the German speaking countries. The "Slave Ring" - as it is also known - was first used only as a submissive's symbol but is nowadays used also by dominants. It can be worn on any finger, and some consider the use of the ring on the right hand as a submissive sign and on the left hand as a dominant sign. It's shape was inpired by the Story of O movie and consists of a cylindrical steel ring of various widths with an attached smaller ring representing the shackle for the literal chain used in bondage S/M (SandM or SM) games. The Ring of O development is commonly attached to the German BDSM practicioners as well as some designers. From 1990 on The Ring of O or the "Slave Ring" has been used also outside of the BDSM sub-culture.
