This is a book that took me a long time to finish but not because it wasn't good. I had picked this one up during a time when BDSM was becoming a huge "fad" seeing as "Fifty Shades of Grey" brought it in the limelight. As soon as everyone got talking about Master/slave relationships, and spanking, whipping...etc.....I became curious about what goes on in the "real world." I realize that we all love to read the stories that romanticize BDSM; but I wanted to have a realistic view shown to me so I ...more

Recommends it for: interested in D/s and M/s relationships
This was one of the buddy reads in the BDSM group. Since I'm interested in D/s relationships, a M/s book was right up my alley. I found this book to be written in an easy format to understand.

It's not a manual, just as they said. Instead, it's more of a journey sharing of experiences which worked and didn't work for them. In addition, it gave us insight into their background as to why they wanted their M/s relationship to work they way it it did. It seems their vanilla relationships really burne

This is a collection of writings by Dan and dawn Williams (the hosts of the Erotic Awakening podcast). They’d been in a power exchange relationship for more than ten years when they compiled and wrote the book in 2011.

Master Dan’s writing is well-reasoned and reasonable. I can only hope that the people who need to read his advice will do and will take it to heart—the scene needs more people like him. His pieces are useful to slaves, as well, because they give you an idea of what makes a good Own

- How kinky?
Very. This book is all about the relationship side of kink - in short, TPE, or Total Power Exchange. The participants are also into kinky sex, but they don't go into that in the book. This book is basically a very broad primer for kinky relationship styles, and specifically TPE.

- How sexy?
Well, it's sexy to me, but that's subjective! As I mentioned, they don't go into sex in more than a few here-and-there sentences, so no, it's not sexy/sexual in nature.

- How informative?
Extremely! I
