Favourite BDSM Related Book (Fiction or Non-Fiction)
My favourite book is probably Screw The Roses Send Me the Thorns: The Romance and Sexual Sorcery of Sadomasochism by Molly Devon and Phillip Miller. It’s been around for a long time and it’s still the one I hear recommended and I recommend myself. In fact I brought a copy for my partner for Valentines Day last year.
It’s full of great advice and still manages to be a fun read. Sure there are one or two rather outdated things in there given it was written in that dark time before the internet and everything was in black and white. (I’m kidding about the second part, but seriously anyone else remember what it was like before internet?)
If you want a book of good, solid BDSM advice to build your knowledge on, or even to expand the knowledge you already have, after all aren’t we always constantly learning and kinky people? Then I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
I’ll add a note that The New Topping Book by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy is pretty good too for those interested in female domination. That’s one I have myself and even though I had been in BDSM for a while when I picked it up it was still a great read. If nothing else I think it’s interesting and important if you want to learn to at least read about how others out there are doing it.
