This is the best book on lifestyle, female-led, service-based D/S relationships ever written.

Period.

Rika writes as a woman, from a woman's perspective, on what it means to have and hold a submissive male partner. Her voice is clear, concise and authoritative. She sugar coats nothing. She is open and accepting of men who yearn to submit without pandering to their (our) illusions or ever being patronizing. Best of all she never for a second loses her sense of humor or shies from pointing out the absurdity of our fantasies. Her description of an utterly humiliating yet gentle and loving scene she did with her husband is classic: funny, well-written, eye-opening and very hot.

Her take on FemmeDom service is refreshingly honest. Let's face it: most women (herself included) aren't in it for the man's benefit! She makes no bones about the fact that while all healthy relationships are mutually beneficial, power-exchange relationships must be based on the primacy of the Domme, not the desires of the sub.

She covers a lot of ground in relatively few pages, including:
- what service-based D/S is and isn't
- how to use a sub's fantasies to train a sub
- how to stop topping-from-the-bottom
- how to understand acts of dominance as "gifts"
- how to come to grips with a male sub's desires without sacrificing your own
- the proper role of "scenes"
- uses of chastity and denial
- boundary setting: how a husband can be a sub but still be the big strong Man you married

WARNING:
If you are looking for a book on how to do a Goddess scene or some ideas for Amazon play or CB torture, this is not your book.

After reading a lot of femdom related literature (none of which my wife found very appealing), we finally stumbled across this - unfortunately very hidden - jewel through Amazon. Wow! This book is amazing. Thank you Ms Rika for putting together such an outstanding analysis on the very core problems of a female-led D/s relationship, as well as giving advice on how to overcome these problems with ease. My wife is so thrilled and even turned on by the book and its message that it's a sheer delight to watch her grow more and more confident and happy with her dominant role in our relationship.
We are currently trying to put Ms Rika's advice into practice one to one. And so far, it's been fun, fun, fun, without any drawbacks.

The author's approach is mostly based on the powerful feelings that are brought up within the submissive when serving his lover. She argues that it is reward and motivation enough for any service-oriented sub to see his domme happy and fulfilled. The most important thing to pay attention to here, though, is that this service must be centered around her needs, and her needs only. That is the only way that guarantees that she will be happy and the relationship a success. Thus, the submissive should have no right whatsoever to lead or manipulate this kind of arrangement in any way, even though he may feel a strong urge to suggest to her certain role-playing FemDom scenarios. Those kind of activities should only be engaged in, if and when she feels like it, and should be seen as a gift to the sub.

The book is a wonderful mix between descriptive, juicy example situations of the proposed novel D/s techniques and knife-sharp psychological analysis of the male's psyche. Very well researched and written. An absolute must-read for all 24/7, female-led, D/s enthusiasts!

Female dominance from an intelligent prospective! This book is filled with actual examples, and philosophies for the new or vintage dominant. While it is based on female dominance/ male submission, the philosophies are gender neutral and would be great help for those in a male dominated relationship as well!

Well laid out, very thought provoking. A good book to foster discussion in any type of relationship!

Well done!

Being in the lifestyle for many years, it was such a pleasant surprise to find a well thought out, well written book about D/s and the beauty of the dynamic from a female dominant point of view. Although, it is not necessary to share this perspective to benefit from this read!

The book is wonderful - full of information, shared experience and all done with a lovely sense of humor. It is a joyful, and loving, easy read. Ms Rika delves into the female led relationship using examples from her own life experience and shows how to interpret what she writes into reality. Dominant or submissive it is a wonderful tool and a must have for your collection about BDSM.

With the ease of Ms Rika's writing, the only thing I could add is I wished it were longer! I look forward to more from this writer and hope she goes more in depth and share's it back to us with many more books. I can not say enough!

Ms. Rika's succinct text offers a fresh take on loving, lifestyle female dominant relationships. By showing how true service can ease the life of the woman, while identifying "conventional" BDSM play as "male-centric activity", she shows how to structure the female-dominant relationship so that the needs of both partners are met. It's a brilliant book that I've read more than once, and one that I'm now reading to my wife for her own enjoyment.
