Your Field Guide to Discovering, Exploring and Navigating the Kink, Leather & BDSM Communities. by Lee Harrington & Mollena Williams
Explaining Kink Culture
Other books explain how to give a spanking or tie a half-hitch, but this is the first book that explains kink culture – the munches, parties, leather bars, conferences, workshops, fetish nights, exploratoriums and all the other gatherings that turn BDSM and leather from a bedroom predilection to a lifestyle and a community.
Playing Well with Others is warm, funny and full of helpful advice about how to behave when you find yourself in mind-boggling situations: What’s with the red hankies? How do I address a collared slave? And, would it be OK to sit back and enjoy the hot group scene about to take place in front of my very eyes even if I don’t know the players? All of those questions, and many more, are answered in detail.
BDSM Guide for Beginners and Active Players
Our reviewer says: “I haven’t been this excited about a how-to guide since I first came across Anal Sex Position Guide by Tristan Taormino – everyone should have a copy of this book in their bedside drawer!
It isn’t just a great read for those new to kink, but those already active on the scene will pick up useful pointers too. In my opinion, Playing Well With Others is not only a guide to BDSM & kink, but also a lifestyle guide as it addresses issues such as self-care and how to manage your own wants, needs and desires (as well as those of others); not only should we treat others as we ourselves would like to be treated, but we should treat ourselves that way too.”
