So the first thing you need to know is that this is a dictionary. A bedroom reference guide for kinky stuff. The first 6 or 7 pages are what you would expect; A narrative on the value of kinky play. The rest of book is an alphabetical reference guide to various terms. Everything you can imagine is defined here. The reason I think this is important is that it's not really the kind of book that lends itself to being read from cover to cover. It's just a series of terms and definitions.
The reason I still gave it 4 stars is that the definitions aren't boring. They are well written, in some cases humorous, and they don't pull any punches. They tell you exactly what it is and what to do. It's not really a "guide", it's more of a reference book. You want to know what a ballgag is and how to use one? It's in there. Restraints? Yup. Genital Torture? Yup. It's in there too.

Yes, I've only just begun reading this book and it has already clarified the protection and safety issues with kink. I already have a pretty good handle on BD/SM and think this book will offer me some expansion of ideas. Like I said I've just started it. SO far I like how the author conveys the information. The levity used is a great avenue to enjoy while learning!

Em & Lo are irreverent, smart and funny feminists out to demystify the world of kink. Best of all, I caught up on all the juicy info and how-tos without enduring the pain of reading a single page of the Fifty Shades trilogy! Smartly written in an A-Z dictionary style with the book's other terms usefully bolded throughout. Also loved the sometime hilarious illustrations.

This book is entertaining and a lot of fun. Perfect for fans of Fifty Shades...only way more empowering. I like that Em and Lo focus on safety and comfort. Even if you don't think kink is for you try reading this book anyway...there really is something for everyone.

I was blessed to receive a recording of the tv series that these two did for BBC, and as much as I love their writing, they are even better on video. But this book is their Opus-Empowering, non-judgemental, informative, and funny. Everything I want in a pillow book!

It is written like a dictionary, felt like reading a text book with humour. Lots of good info and straight shooting about the other shade stuff.
