If you've ever wondered, or your S.O. has ever ... (it's 2:00AM TUESDAY, and NOW she's ready ...) read this and get an idea of what goes on if you go down this path. Whether you find this fun or enjoyable is up to you ... the book can help you avoid injury, injuries that you would not expect, injuries that can be much more severe than they appear, and that alone is worth the price and the time to read.
I also own the first of these books. If you need more information on the topic this is an excellent place to get it. The fact that Hardy Haberman is a well respected member of the BDSM community also lends credibility to what's written inside. This man has TONS of experience with the subject matter. You're learning from one of the best when you buy this book! If you don't own the first Family Jewels book I'd highly recommend it also.
The first SM book I can recall that used fiction as a way to approach the question of how do conduct a scene was John Warren's "Safe, Sane, Consensual and Fun". Much like that book, Haberman here recalls some of his favorite CBT (cock & ball "torture") scenes. Instead of laying it the how-to as he did in his first book, he uses a narrative style to share his experience with the reader while focusing on the details of what he (and any co-top) technically did in the scene. It's a good read but don't think that just because you read it you will know how to do CBT or anything else kinky safely. I'm still a big believer in learning from doing under expert guidance but books can give you basic information and help you determine if it's something you want to try.
Own up to it. You've seen the cover of this book or maybe flipped through a couple of the stories and you can barely contain the urge to get to the juicy stuff. Maybe you've already absorbed Hardy Haberman's original "The Family Jewels: A Guide to Male Genital Play and Torment" and were starving for more. But maybe you're not. Why, you may ask, do I want somebody to get anything remotely painful down there?!? I mean, they're a perfectly good set of testes and I happen to be quite attached to them, you say.
Good question. Perfectly reasonable, for that matter. After all, one does not want to go to the play party a baritone and come home a falsetto. Hardy once described himself to me as a "Pain Technician," and I can certainly vouch for the veracity of that claim. I have seen him in action, and he can definitely make you dance. I also know that everyone went home afterwards with big canary-eating grins on their faces, including Hardy. Keep that in mind as you start perusing these real-life narratives of balls that went bump in the night.
Think of all those sensitive, tingly nerve endings on a length of skin you can get your thumb and forefinger around. And up. And down. Lube, repeat, rinse. Because if you're reading this, you've probably given more than a passing fantasy over to the thrills of CBT. After all, how many TV shows and movies tantalize us with the exciting threat? Everyone from James Bond to Jack Bauer has hooked our viewing to scenes of men getting their privates worked over.
The great thing about CBT play is the simplicity of it all. Who needs Torquemada when you have Ace Hardware? For that matter, your local OnLine outlet? Go buy yourself some rubber bands (you'll see that in the "On Target" chapter) or even a bag of clothespins, and you've got an instant starter kit. As Hardy explains throughout this book, you don't have be a member of The Spanish Inquisition or earning a six figure income to get a good scene off the ground. CBT is one of many forms of SM easily done on a miniscule budget. It hardly even needs to be threatening. It's Erotica on Two Dollars a Day.
You've got "More Family Jewels" on your computer screen. You're now among friends. You're friends just happen to be kinky and have a fascination with tormented sex organs. If you've ever given thought to letting someone get their fingers across the folds of your scrotum (or vice-versa), you've come to the right place. Read on, no matter what your experience level. Take notes, experiment. That valuable spot between your ears is going to start dreaming up all sorts of excitement for the smaller valuable spot in a somewhat lower region.
