Utterly fascinating.
Brilliant mix of offering a validating, non-judgemental platform for real-life couples to share their individual experiences in-depth while simultanously succeeding in taking the veil off any pretense of perfection and fantasy wish fulfillment.

The wonderful world of modern slavery and the real life Masters and slaves who inhabit that world. This is a collection of how different couples deal with their lives and protocols to keep a sexual/chosen/organinzed life happy and well in a world that would not understand this life. It was a great read if you enjoy the BDSM, leather, rubber, Master/slave Daddy/boy worlds and how to be part of it if your interested!
