Slavery. Genocide. Holocaust. Warfare. Racism. Hate. These are ugly realities of life. Why would you want to plunge yourself headlong into the darkest part of the human psyche for sexual gratification? How can you know anyone well enough to know that they do not really REALLY believe what they are saying to you? Aren't you playing into the hands of self-hatred or real bigotry when you do BDSM around racial identity? Aren't you afraid of being really damaged? These are all questions I have been asked, and asked myself, ever since I realized that I had a visceral curiosity about pushing the edges of my kinky play into the most oblique corners of my psyche. Can you really play with the terrible truths of hatred and racism and oppression and reemerge safely? Yes. I do. I do it, albeit selectively and extremely rarely, because it is a quick slide to one of the darkest edges of my psyche, and that of my play partners. It is emotionally dangerous. Like life. And yes, I live it. And yes, I have experienced racism. But that doesn't lead me to fight, flight or fear,which are all heads of the same Cerberus. I am curious about fucked-up edge play, so I "go there."

The book repeatedly stresses the importance of safe, sane and consensual play, which leads readers to examine the motivation for such desires and fantasies. It also points out the myriad of health risks associated with these taboos.
In conclusion, it is a good introductory book but unfortunately does not provide examples of further reading that would be helpful for one wishing to continue exploring certain taboos in play or in research.
