Book Review: Processing Pain in Play

I got the chance to buy lunaKM’s new version of Processing Pain in Play a littler earlier than everyone else because I had previously purchased the book.

Book Review: Domination and Submission – The BDSM Relationship Handbook

I’ve had this book for a very long time and while I didn’t start into it right away, it has taken me a long time to read. It’s not any fault of the book, it’s a fantastic book, it is just very long and the time I’ve had to read is very short! Don’t let [...]
