Im glad I purchased this book!

If CBT is something you've thought about but know little about, this is a great place to get information.

It's very educational for the novice cbt practitioner.

Format: Paperback
Being in the computer field, for years I thought CBT was an acronym meaning something other than Cock and Ball Torture. While those three words might make the average man cringe or instinctively cover their groin, there are those men who enjoy it immensely and other men and women who enjoy doing CBT to them! It is for these two groups of folks that this book is primarily written for.
Among the topics Haberman covers here include basic male anatomy (and there's quite a bit to know about it!), negotiation and safewords, play benefits and risks involved, safe sex play and cleaning CBT toys, all very important subjects to cover.
There's also a chapter devoted to various CBT toys, including clamps, ball stretchers and spreaders, cock rings and electrical toys just to name a few. There are also diagrams included on how these toys are to be used, as well as several diagrams on tieing up the proverbial cock and balls. There's even a chapter on CBT "recipes," guaranteed to give the proverbial Dom/me lots of ideas!
While CBT may not be my idea of a good time, I fully support those who do enjoy it. I enjoyed the book because it covers the topic well and Hardy's easy-going style makes reading this book fun and enjoyable.

Format: Paperback
When we hear or see the term CBT we think "torture" and that usually makes us all cross our legs. But Haberman's book is really focused on creating intense or simply pleasureable sensations for male genitals in ways that do not involve intercourse. The book has four main divisions: anatomy, safety (please don't skip over this one), basics & toys of CBT, and finally a collection of nine short stories to demostrate the first three sections. The stories aren't really arousing, they are more instructive. If CBT is something you've thought about but know little about, this is a great place to get information. Read it with your partner and you can figure out what he is interested in.

Format: Paperback
Let's get all the cliches out of the way first. "The Family Jewels" is a gem. It is precise, finely cut to spec and invaluable. In fact, the first time I laid eyes on it, my first thought was, why didn't anyone think of this before?
Hardy Haberman has filled a void in the SM literary canon that not only give tips to the experienced edge player, but to beginners as well. There are also a few chunks of anecdotal scene evidence to add the touch of hard-on reading that any book of this nature needs to keep the entertainment value at a maximum.

You may not be familiar with Mr. Haberman, who considers himself a "Pain Technologist." He specializes in CBT and has an unusual fondness for clips, clamps and clothespins, as well as more exotic SM play. I recommend this book to anyone with even a passing interest in learning about esoteric genital play.

I Purchased this book for my Mistress. She read it entirely in one sitting! She very much enjoyed the look on my face as she described what she had read.

My wife loved the book and has found it very informative. She was not aware that she knew so much through our trial and error methods, but now more errors....just more fun.

I think there's a bit of confusion from the blurb about what this book is really about. It almost feels like two books combined into one, so if you're looking for something purely instructional, you might not be too impressed with the second half of the book. But if you're looking for something entertaining, then you might not be impressed with the first half.

The first part of this book delves into devices and safety. There are lengthy descriptions of everything, and it reads more like a manual than something meant to entertain.

The second part of the book is a collection of stories from cbt scene play experiences.

I personally would have preferred an entire collection of cbt scene stories, but I'm not going to knock off a star because I thought that this book covered cbt very thoroughly.

If you're interested in practicing cbt but don't know anything about it, then I would say this book is a must have. It's very educational for the novice cbt practitioner. If you're looking for a read that will be more entertaining than educational though, you might want to spend your money elsewhere.

The only thing I didn't really like about this book was that there is a whole lot of advertising for other books inside. This might be off-putting to some readers, as it does happen so frequently that at times it feels like you're being advertised to while you're reading. I honestly don't think that was the author's intentions though. I believe that the books that were mentioned (albeit repeatedly sometimes) were to give readers suggestions for other accurate BDSM manuals. Cause, let's face it, most BDSM books out there don't really know what they're talking about. And judging from how thorough this manual was, I'm pretty sure his suggestions were good ones.

This book has some good information on parts of CBT but it skates past the parts that I consider the core activities. There is almost nothing in the book about impact or crushing.

I was hoping to learn from this book.
However, it didn't give step by step instructions on how to do certain types of CBT.
It gave scenarios about things that could go wrong during play & this mostly scared me into not wanting to do this to my partner. It had hardly any pictures & the ones it did were not helpful.
Also the writing style & editing were very juvenile.
If you are trying to learn techniques, I suggest you look elsewhere.
