"Plenty of resources tell you how to find your local BDSM community, but very few help you once you get there. This book is packed with tips about what to expect, how to communicate, and how to behave in different kinky situations. -Tristan Taormino, The Ultimate Guide to Kink

Ruth Neustifter, Ph.D.
Author of The Nice Girl's Guide to Talking Dirty
From walking brand new into your first play party, to online interaction to how to identify a cult. These two have covered it all without being preachy. Excellent read!
There's a great deal of information in this book that anyone can use, even non-kinksters, including the importance of friends, understanding and negotiating what one wants in a relationship - whether with one's partner or one's community or oneself, and understanding one's own emotional state and reactions to events.
I appreciate the book's focus on knowing oneself and one's own principles and limits. There's a worthy caution against pressure to take actions that the participant is not prepared for, and that pressure may just as likely come from within as from without. The text poses a lot of probing questions to encourage the reader to understand their own motivations. Overall, I found the book to be very educational and thought-provoking, and not only about the communities it covers.
However, if you've gotten past the point of knowing you're kinky and you want to venture out into the world of BDSM, this is absolutely the book for you.
The authors have a fantastic, friendly style of writing and cover everything in detail. A lot of their advice may seem simple and obvious but people get excited and nervous around this topic so I think being thorough is a good thing.
The Kindle version has some typos and formatting issues but nothing so bad that it isn't obvious what they meant.
