I must have a dirty mind because I loved this. Loved Fifty Shades also (only read the first book). No, it wasn't War and Peace and neither is this, but both are lots of fun. I don't think this is really about BDSM, maybe really softcore BDSM but mostly its about KINK with some tying up and "high sensory" sexual experiences which was what we needed. Some people obviously find that immoral or weird or whatever, but there's my dirty mind again because I like it. I think people really need to lighten up about the whole Fifty Shades thing. I thought 50 Ways to Play was a fun although shorter book with plenty of caveats abouts mental and physical safety issues. Another reviewer had talked about that, but I didn't see that as a problem and frankly didn't find anything in the book to be dangerous if you have any common sense. I would have wanted this book to be a little longer but other than that a good choice as far as sex guides go.

Henry Le Nav I am the loyal opposition on this book, but obviously you have had a good experience with the book, and I am glad for you. I agree those with common sense and sobriety can benefit from the book. But I think people need to understand that this is an extremely broad but shallow introduction.

BDSM is not my thing, but that is me. I think that any sexual practice that brings a couple closer together, maintains self respect and respect for each other, and strengthens the couple's bond is a good and wonderful thing. As long as it is used properly there is nothing immoral about BDSM, (I'll maintain counsel with myself on the weird). As such I don't think that you have a dirty mind. So may both you and your husband enjoy your explorations into kink. That is the key, if BOTH of you ENJOY the experience, then have at it, but remember the common sense!
