This book is a finalist in the NLA:International writing awards, in particular for the Geoff Mains Nonfiction Book Award. I read it as part of that awards jury, and here's what I wrote about this book in particular in my wrapup review of all three finalists at my blog:

The most difficult book of the three to “judge,” because it is the most likely to be viewed differently in the eye of the beholder, is Lee Harrington’s “Sacred Kink.” Among the people Lee thanks in the opening of the book are, “my

This is a good resource for sacred kink; it has enough information for beginners in sacred sexuality to start to learn the ropes while containing enough detail and applications for those more experienced in ritual or sacred sexuality to explore in more depth. It is also helpful that this book doesn't cover just one spiritual path; by leaving practice details more open and including information about potential applications/spirit work from different paths, the approaches within take on a more uni ...more

As a Pagan, I found this book much more accessible and comprehensible than most other books or content on BDSM/kink. I had many moments of "oh THAT's why people do that" for activities I'd never really understood. It also validated some of my own experience.

What I most enjoyed about this book was Lee's efforts to provide detailed information about each path and create a framework for people from multiple belief systems to engage in the incorporation of kink to their spirituality. Lee's expertise as both a sex educator and spiritual teacher shows through in this book time and time again. He provides excellent examples and also useful definitions for understanding each path. I found a lot in this book that I know I can apply to my own spiritual pract ...more

This is very focused on out of body spiritual experiences. Many resources for that. Not 100% in line with my personal ethics about aspecting, but definitely covers ethics appropriately. If you are specifically looking to explore for out of body experience through kink, this lays out some varied and interesting ways to do it. If you are looking for broad sweeping ideas about making sex sacred, not so much.

A huge index of ways to think about and apply sacred kink. Definitely a book to read over and over in pieces.
