From Different Loving:
In order to understand unusual sexualities such as dominance and submission, one first has to consider the question ‘What is normal?‘ If the unique function of sex is reproductive—and the only reason men and women should engage in sex is for the purpose of creating a new life—then only heterosexual intercourse is normal. By this standard, many common acts, even contraception, must be considered aberrant. Reproductive relevance was the Victorian standard of normalcy, and even today many of the laws in the United States still abide by that model. But people have always pursued sex for both reproduction and for pleasure and well-being.
We start from the premise that sex for pleasure is a normal human drive and is acceptable when it brings pleasure to both partners. From this perspective, D&S is simply a ‘different‘ kind of loving.
We hope to add to the greater body of knowledge about what people really do behind closed doors with the people they most love and trust. Perhaps Different Loving will help open the door for further research into the mystery, beauty, and complexity of human life and its diverse expressions.
Praise for Different Loving
“The definitive guide to the sexual styles of those who walk on the wild side.”—Kirkus Reviews
“As a window on largely unexplored territory, Different Loving is a breakthrough in the dialogue on human sexuality, and a significant work of popular sociology.”—South Bend Tribune
“A comprehensive primer on loving with leather and romance by riding crop.”—Michael Musto, New York Daily News
This uninhibited memoir by controversial writer/sexologist Gloria G. Brame, Ph.D. spares no details about the transformation of a girl into a woman. Naked Memory paves a new path in sex history, fearlessly depicting the true psychological landscape of sex, from the shocking sexual revelations of puberty to the lusty, audacious and, sometimes harrowing, adventures of a teenaged sexual revolutionary.
"Gloria Brame isn't afraid to get totally naked in every way in her memoir. She shows us that sexual revolutionaries aren't born that way, but made via hands-on learning. Naked Memory is an engrossing very personal sex education that spares nothing."
- Rachel Kramer Bussel, Editor, The Big Book of Orgasms
"Gloria Brame's tale of sexual awakening feels immediate. Her catharsis resonates in the same way that broken glass cuts or bone is unyielding. Naked Memory does not inform; it pervades."
- Harry Hughes, author of The Bait Shack and Horseshoes
"Dr. Gloria G. Brame's memoir, Naked Memory, is a thrill ride down the slippery slope of sexual discovery. I was left numbed and vibrating. And I wanted more."
- Skip Williamson, Underground Cartoonist and Political Artist
"Naked Memory is a charming, stylish, and moving memoir of Gloria Brame's early years. Looking forward to the sequel."
- Doug Henwood, radio host, journalist, contributing editor to The Nation

"She was frigid and stern and warm and soft. She was evil incarnate in enticing clothes. She was ice cold with a heart of gold. She was a beautiful creature and a sadistic beast."
Jump into the lusty mind of Dane Jenson, a mid-western farm boy and self-described "kinky code monkey" with a thirst for the bright lights and erotic adventures of New York City. Looking for identity, Dane finds a home in the world of BDSM and joins a chosen family of kinky people who support each other and play together. But you can't fix unhappy from the outside. After years of casual hook-ups, Dane realizes that "even when you sleep with someone different every night, in the end they are all the same person - the person you don't want to spend your life with."
That changed the night Dane met a rich Sugar Daddy who introduced him to the lush life. Part mentor, part soul brother, and chef-par-excellence, Booker gives Dane the love and support he craved his whole life. The only problem is that Dane wants to marry a dominatrix so he can live out all his BDSM fantasies. And there is a dominatrix he has been obsessed with for years... There's just one itsy bitsy problem. All his friends hate her. And when he finds out the truth about her, he may hate her too.
Gloria Brame's first novel in 20 years, Champions of Pleasure colorfully displays her profound understanding of the backstories of queer/BDSM lives, and the emotional highs and lows of being sexually different. The writing sparkles with her unique combination of wit, intelligence and warmth. Dane's journey to sexual self-awareness is a painfully hilarious ride you will never forget.
