Rampant with kink shamingReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on June 24, 2020
The information is lacking, and it is rampant with kink shaming. And basically saying "Don't do edge play" isn't informing on the subject. Misrepresented 50 shades, and essentially victim blamed Anastasia. Mislabeled D-types and s-types. There are a multitude more than what is listed. And calling masochist lazy? Really? Submissive don't control a BDSM session. They submitted that to the D-type for them to do as they please. Doms can use safewords, too. That was never mentioned. There are ways to research spanking without seeing porn, if you know what you're doing. I'm guessing the author does not. Calling kids "screaming little bastards"? Really? The acronym is CNC, and it incorporates more than just rape play. There comes are not for everyone in BDSM. I suggest a rewrite to incorporate jealousy somehow. A "wooden X" is a Saint Andrew's Cross. If you're going to use vernacular throughout your book, then use it. Don't pick and choose. The rope handcuffs mentioned are dangerous and should not be used. Using them could result in permanent damage. Just be sure you don't agree with a kink, doesn't mean you shouldn't discuss it. Maybe don't go into it at all if you are opposed to things, such as shock collars. Telling people to seek counseling for their links is kink shaming. There are safe ways to do edge play. If you can't educate on it,then don't cover it at all.

A Start to a JourneyReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 27, 2018
Rev. Jen provides an excellent starter course in this book, which serves well as a novice instructional guide. Rev. Jen is honest about her limits, her experience, and the moments where she inlists the help of friends in forming the knowledge base in this guide. The current that runs through everything she includes is the notion of consent and safety. She is candid about all acts and situations in which she's been involved. She also discusses the risks associated with these behaviors. For the kinkster who doesn't yet know where to begin, BDSM 101 provides a great start on the road to deep relationships and fulfillment.

I'd read this BEFORE SM-101, it's just plain for funReviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on February 4, 2014
Written from a "Professional Submissives" point of view (I didn't even know there was such a thing) it is a great survey of all the stuff you might run into. Plenty of personal experiences to help illustrate and not a "downer". Short, easy to read and a good primer before trying to tackle the subject with any real conviction. Just getting started? By all means YES!
