Summary
Severine is a repressed, bored housewife, afraid of intimacy. Her husband, Pierre is kind, devoted, and understanding. Severine is aroused by the idea of domination and debasement, and gentle Pierre is hardly the type of person who would treat her cruelly in order to receive sexual gratification. Following the example of an acquaintance, she begins a double life as the girl called Belle de Jour, in the brothel run by Madame Anais. Her otherwise placid domestic life is threatened when an obsessed client, unable to possess her completely, begins to stalk her
