Without getting too personal, I was drawn to buying this book because of some personal growth and realizations about myself and my sexuality. The fantasies and thoughts in this book, some of them already existed somewhere within my subconscious, but reading this book gave them some release. This book is well-written and very detailed. The first chapters deal with the psychological/emotional aspects of wanting to be a dominant woman or having feelings of domaninance as a woman in society. (Nice girls don't want to hit men, right?) The book details the five archetypes of dominating women (Nurse, Teacher, Queen, Amazon, and Goddess) and how each has different fantasies and scenes. The scenes in this book are excellent, and I would recommend that you take a little bit from each and tailor them to suit your (and your partner's) needs. I would definitely recommend this book to any woman who is drawn to the BDSM lifestyle and wants to learn how to top effectively.

I don't usually gravitate towards the dominance side of bdsm but I did have a lover at one time who wished to explore his own submissive nature. This book is an excellent education for any woman or man, for that matter, who is interested in experiencing female dominance. This is not a simple overview of female dominance or bdsm techniques but a true manual that takes you through the evolution of becoming a Mistress and the enacting of fantasy with your male partner. If you are new to the concept of female dominance this is an excellent book to guide you through the pleasure and pain of being the ultimate Nursemaid, Governess, Queen, Amazon, or Goddess. The book is broken into three main sections: Becoming a Mistress, The Mistress in Action, and The Five Archetypal Fantasies.

Becoming a Mistress brings light to idea of female dominance and the pleasure that can come from command while also discussing the psychological aspects of dominance and finding a partner to explore your fantasies. I enjoyed this section immensely since so many factors concerning personal guilt and relationships are addressed in regards to female dominance. If you're new to the sensual art of dominance you will gather a great deal of self-awareness and understanding in this section concerning bdsm and female dominance

The Mistress in Action begins the real sexual play of dominance between you and your male partner. From the language of dominance to the ties that bind you'll learn some basics that you can expand on with additional reading. This is an excellent book for the novice domme. Once you and our submissive discover specific items that are enjoyable I highly recommend SM101 by Jay Wiseman to explore more techniques and in-depth understanding of BDSM.

I am sure it sounds trite, but this book changed my life. I have been married for 12 years to a man who is submissive and it was not until I read this book that I finally understood that he was not "weak" because he was this way. He is very masculine and in a very masculine profession, but this book taught me that being dominated is a way to have a release from that sort of life and I am very glad to Dominate my husband for our enjoyment. Our marriage has improved 100% since I found this book. There is no greater gift than being able to respect and understand your partner and Mistress Lorelai helped me do so.

Format: Paperback
If your lover has asked you to engage in BDSM or erotic roleplay and you've never really had an interest yourself OR you are the lover and you're looking for a little intro book to help out your would-be-domme, this book could be helpful for you. The author has put in considerable effort to explain the why's and how's of Dominance/submission - and tries to make it seem okay/"normal" to someone who may be nervous or concerned about engaging in BDSM or erotic roleplay.

However, if you have even the slightest dominant inclination, interest or experience, this book will be a waste of time and money. If you are already into BDSM and feel good about it, then you've already passed this book by.

If anyone has any questions, doubts of how to do femdom, or where to start a scene, this book tells how. This work by Lorelei is the best how-to that I've read. I recommend it for any of the ladies out there who are uncertain about "femdom". This book will show you how to have fun with female dominance

I bought this book back in '94 and it is wonderfull. It's everything the author says and more but most importantly (for me)- it is one of the few books that stresses that this should be done for the couple's MUTUAL pleasure. I also think it may be the only book out there that comes from a mongamous loving relationship viewpoint - not that is the only way to go in this lifestyle but very rarely talked about. It's fun, HUMAN, and very very helpfull. I have recommend the books to others - no complaints so far. Screw the Roses is the best book out there. This, IMO is a close second. The writer's hubbie must be a lucky man indeed.... (HieroV@aol.com)

I work in the capacity of a personal and professional growth coach with a very sex positive approach. I find that when people have issues, they often show up eventually in the bedroom. I also have an assumption that our society has both a fascination with sex and at the same time a lot of guilt, shame and ignorance around it, especially areas involving sexual fantasies.

As a psychological professional, I see that shame and guilt around certain fantasies often leads to acting out. Husbands and wives are often reticent to share some of their fantasies because of shame and this creates a barrier between them. In my practice, I have found honest, humor and a safe environment leads to increased intimacy and a safe space to explore new behaviors that enhance intimacy.

In our culture, women often feel disempowered and sometimes they fantasize about turning the tables. A lot of men find this interesting too and sometimes even pay for it because they are too ashamed to discuss this desire with their wife or partner. While there is a lot of material out there on this topic and other related topics, not all of them are equal.

I came across this book accidentally in a bookstore and picked it up and started reading it. I found it entertaining and it had some ideas that I laughed at and others that sounded very interesting. This book also explored five archetypal fantasies that form the basis of many men's fantasies with respect to a woman being dominant. This was an interesting discussion and it lead deeper into the territory of how to discuss these fantasies with a partner and use this material to spice up your sexual communication and sex life.

This title is geared to conversative couples who want to wade slowly into exploring new sexual territory.
