"Shanna Germain's stories are gorgeously poetic, emotionally fearless, and torch-your-panties hot. She's the Aztec chile chocolate of erotica an indulgence good for both body and soul."
Donna George Storey
"This interesting book is not an instructional manual but a guide to what BDSM means, complete with examples. While you might think dry and boring, this is anything but that. After all, it is kinky sex. That being said, it goes over mental and physical health, communication and so much more that you really should think about before exploring your kinkier side. While this sounds like it should be for those who have never tried BDSM, it would still be helpful for those who have. If nothing else, as a reminder of things you should think about. It is well laid out with short stories or excerpts from stories to illustrate the point that that chapter is making. Those stories are wonderful; interesting as well as informative. In the back of the book is a glossary and other tools to make your adventure safe, sane and consensual as well as risk aware consensual kink. Everything might not be for everyone and some things may not interest you today but may tomorrow or never. Regardless of where you are, this is an informative book. I liked that it wasn’t a how to but more of a how would I ever do this type of stuff and what about the rest of the world!"

Fantastic book that is truly needed.
Enter the work in question. This was for my benefit, as my wife has done her own research. Ms. Germain has done a great job of making this an open topic to discuss and read about. It's a mix of her personal life (pretty amazing really), interviews and fiction. I poo poo'd the fiction, then I promptly used the idea for our first mild session. So there you are.
Ms. Germain has a ton of guts. She'd be a neat person to know and I think her work may really help me and my wife out. Thanks for writing this.
Overall, this book approaches a complicated subject with elegance and thoughtfulness, two strengths that are often apparent in Shanna's writing.
