Good reference material, or for people wanting to know more who may be exploring, this could be a good starting point to answer some basics. Also............. Note: NO BOOK WILL MAKE YOU A "TOP" OR "DOM" - PLEASE GET TRAINING FROM A PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED EXPERT. Note: PLEASE KNOW IT TAKES SEVERAL *YEARS* INVESTMENT TO LEARN & PRACTICE THIS MATERIAL WITH OVERSIGHT FROM SOMEONE WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE DOING TO AVOID ABUSE & HARM.
Make sure you start with book one I recommend the series to anyone who’s looking for a healthy and reasonable overview and understanding about how to play in the space. I think this book does an excellent job explaining things detailing how the system works, punishments and rewards, clear system and structure, communication, negotiation and the role of psychology and the mental side of sexual expression and exploration.
This book (and series thus far) is invaluable to the beginner Dom/me. The author goes into the reasons behind the activities, the activities themselves, and guides the reader towards a more meaningful experience. Hopefully you found this series first, as it is very well grounded, but if not, read it anyways, and it will fill in a lot of "gaps" you may have on your journey to being a more well-rounded Dom/me.
I really found these books very interesting and informative. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to know more about BDSM. I really think that many would change their way of thinking about what happens in this particular lifestyle.
