Format: Paperback
I found this book to be a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining piece of reading. I have found that since I began working in the industry, I sometimes find myself somewhat overly informed on topics that deal with kink, fetishism, BDSM, and so on. I don't mind being knowledgeable at all. There was a time when reading a book on such a topic was very much like looking at pictures on the same topic. I was more than aroused. I was intrigued by the very idea that these activities took place. I couldn't wait to grow up and begin my exploration of the world where fantasies became realities, and all these curiously wonderful things truly existed. I now live in that world, and I am extremely grateful and happy that I do. While reading books on such topics can no longer serve the function they did when I was a much younger person, they serve a new function. Not only am I continuously entertained when I read a well written sex book, a book like that helps to keep my own ideas fresh, and helps me to guard against getting too "routine" in the constant expression of my own sexual appetite.

I believe that it is also worth mentioning the purpose a well written sex book serves in the online computer era. I love the online sex world, obviously since I'm here at this very moment. The wealth of information offered today is amazing. The convenience and accessibility we enjoy in the modern age is a gift. As much as I love what the internet has done for my sexual well being, there will never be a substitute for a good book.

I realize that writing a sex book full of information that could fill sex industry professionals with shock and awe would find a very limited audience. People starting their own journey of sexual adventure and self discovery need a good map.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Yuki on January 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
While the variety of fetishes described was good, there was nothing specific, just general suggestions. For someone who knows what their fetishes are and has a steady, trusting partner up for experimentation, this book is not for you.

On the other hand, if you are just starting your interest in the world of fetish or someone has suggested something to you and you aren't sure, this would be your pick.

The book is fairly well written but the lack of content and the sexual anecdotes got tiring after the first chapter.

If you have a corset, latex, leather or shoe fetish you are better off just searching the internet for information- there is a half page on shoes and a page and a half about corsets, essentially saying that people happen to have fetishes in those areas.

Overall I give this book 3.5 stars- a good try but a failed attempt to cover even the most "mainstream" of fetishes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book will tell you just about everything on a number of fetishes and how to integrate any (that turn you on) into your relationship with your partner, respectfully and safely. Violet also explains how to understand your partner's fetish. Interspersed with chapters on fetishes are short erotic stories. Huge source list in the back. No pictures, but a quick, entertaining, informative read!

Format: Paperback
I read this book with the aim of understanding and learning more about the diversity of human sexuality. Violet Blue introduced the topic with her own epiphany, and what it meant for her. She explains and describes the different approaches to individual fetishes, and how people might safely explore this alone or with a partner. The stories add spice and translate the guide into fiction or possible scenarios. Recommended for both the curious and the practitioner.
