To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
A fun, down to earth laidback approach by the author into the world of BDSM. There's always something new to learn. It lost a star down to poor spelling and grammar which could've easily been rectified.
I’m sorry, but this book desperately needs a spellcheck. The plural of Doms isn’t “Dom’s” and no one “airs” on the side of caution. A comma once in a lifetime wouldn’t hurt either.
When it comes to the content of the book, it’s just too lightweight to be a guide on bdsm. It explains what a dildo is, and I suspect that if you’ve never heard of sex toys in your life, you’re not going to go into a D/s lifestyle.
Most kinks and dynamics are never mentioned, and there’s no depth in the ones that are. And let’s stop pretending that subs can’t be brats.
Some safety tips for ropes are good, but there are plenty of other things that should have been mentioned here. The content on consent is also relatively good.
We started with this book in 2020, and finished it round April 2021 😅.
Very informative, eye opening on the BDSM topic. I/we know a bit more on this topic and its good to know that this is not the ending, but just the beginning. Continue to learn and grow on the topic if that is what you desires. ✌🏽
I shared this book with my fiance. I've always been curious about BDSM, but unfortunately never had a partner so willing to experiment and as open as my fiance. I can say this is the perfect intro book to share with your sexual partner to open up dialogue and see if this journey is for both of you. Thank you Jonathan for writing and sharing.
