This review is from: Urban Aboriginals (Paperback)
Urban Aboriginals: A Celebration of Leather Sexuality is extremely well written. It captivates audiences; especially ones who have limited knowledge of the `leather scene.' The book gives extremely intimate and detailed accounts of characters' experiences with leather encounters. This allows the reader to fully understand the complexities of `role playing' in the leather scene. It also allows the reader to understand the feelings and emotions of characters. The book also does not always assume the reader has previous knowledge about the leather scene. The author does a good job of explaining terminology.
To be honest, previous to reading Urban Aboriginals: A Celebration of Leather Sexuality, I had limited knowledge about the topic. In addition, I judged people in the leather scene as well. After reading the ethnography, I realized that the leather scene is just another way to express sexuality in a different realm. I suggest this book to anyone who does not know much about the leather scene and is open to alternative expressions of sexuality.
