Book Review: Broken Toys: Submissives with Mental Illness and Neurological Dysfunction by Raven Kaldera and Del Tashlin

Book Review: Broken Toys: Submissives with Mental Illness and Neurological Dysfunction by Raven Kaldera and Del Tashlin

There are a lot of us in the lifestyle who deal with mental illness or a type of neurological dysfunction. There are numerous groups on Fetlife and articles on the Internet dealing with being in a power exchange relationship when having a mental illness. Unfortunately, there aren’t that many sources about being in a power [...]

9 Books on BDSM and D/s I’ve Read More Than Once (They’re THAT Good!)

9 Books on BDSM and D/s I’ve Read More Than Once (They’re THAT Good!)

from the Submissive Guide Newsletter 7/9/16 When I started exploring BDSM and D/s relationships in 2003 there weren’t a lot of resources available. Those that were available were considered bibles of BDSM, essential reading for those who wanted books to read. (Which seems self-serving since they were the only resources, of  course people suggested reading [...]

Book Review: The Ultimate Guide to Kink: BDSM, Role Play and the Erotic Edge by Tristan Taormino

Book Review: The Ultimate Guide to Kink: BDSM, Role Play and the Erotic Edge by Tristan Taormino

In my quest to read books that have been sitting at the bottom of my Kindle library for awhile now, I stumbled across The Ultimate Guide to Kink: BDSM, Role Play, and the Erotic Edge edited by Tristian Taormino. I had even forgotten that I had purchased this book. I feel a bit stupid for [...]

Review: Vondage – Vegan Bondage Gear from Stockroom.com

Review: Vondage – Vegan Bondage Gear from Stockroom.com

If you are someone who would rather not use animal products, finding BDSM gear of any sort that gives you the same feel as leather but is conscious of your choices is difficult at best. The Stockroom has presented an answer and I’d have to say they are pretty good! What am I talking about? [...]

Book Review: BDSM-The Naked Truth by Dr. Charley Ferrer

Book Review: BDSM-The Naked Truth by Dr. Charley Ferrer

I picked up BDSM – The Naked Truth by Dr. Charley Ferrer a while ago. And by a while ago, I mean since 2012. It’s been sitting at the bottom of my Kindle library and part of my reading goals this year was to read some of those books that have sat untouched for a [...]

Review: Medium Weight Flogger by House Of Eros from Bondage Bunnies

Review: Medium Weight Flogger by House Of Eros from Bondage Bunnies

If I think back to my early days of kink, I’d have to say that my first tool was a wooden spoon, but not far behind that was a flogger. I don’t recall it being a fancy flogger as I was limited on budget, but I liked it and it lasted me for years until [...]

Book Review: Decoding Your Kink by Galen Fous MTP

Book Review: Decoding Your Kink by Galen Fous MTP

I heard about Decoding Your Kink by Galen Fous MPT from Facebook. In several BDSM groups I’m in, this book was mentioned and had received positive feedback from those who read it and after seeing so many others interested in this book, my interest was piqued and decided to check it out. So I hopped [...]

Review: Black Titanium Wrist Cuff by Eternity Collars

Review: Black Titanium Wrist Cuff by Eternity Collars

24/7 slave wear is definitely something people are always asking me if I have suggestions or opinions. It’s probably because I’ve worn a stainless steel collar for over 7 years and I must have a lot of opinion. Perhaps. Last month I reviewed a steel rope collar (no longer being sold) from Eternity Collars and today I’m going [...]

Book Review: Spanking for Lovers by Janet Hardy

Book Review: Spanking for Lovers by Janet Hardy

A couple of weeks on Facebook, Janet Hardy (co-author of several amazing books including The Ethical Slut and The New Bottoming Book), asked for people who are interested in reviewing her new book, Spanking for Lovers and I had a total fangirl moment. I swear, if it had been in person, I would have been [...]

Book Review: M/s for the Rest of Us

Book Review: M/s for the Rest of Us

Master/slave relationships are not usually more complex than D/s ones but they do have their own quirks and manners and behaviors that other relationships don’t have. Which is probably why when lifestyle books come out that are about relationships they are specific about which type of relationship they most relate to. In today’s book review, [...]

Book Review: 31 Flavors of Kink by Leia Shaw and Cari Silverwood

Book Review: 31 Flavors of Kink by Leia Shaw and Cari Silverwood

I’ve done a lot of non fictional book reviews lately on Submissive Guide and it’s been awhile since I’ve done a fictional BDSM book review. While I do have several I want to do, this one in particular grabbed my attention and then caused my attention to start jumping up and down and screaming “Write [...]

Book Review: BDSM Mastery-Relationships by Robert Rubel and M. Jen Fairfield

Book Review: Enough to Make You Blush: Exploring Erotic Humiliation by Princess Kali

In May of this year I was fortunate enough to attend a BDSM convention that Princess Kali was presenting her Erotic Humiliation class.

Book Review: Slave-ography by Slave Patrick

Book Review: Slave-ography by Slave Patrick

Awhile ago, I had a couple of male s-types contact me and I replied to one of their comments saying something along the lines how I wish there was a book for the male s-types like there are for female submissives. There are tons of books and blogs, and whatever else out there geared towards female [...]

Book Review: The Ritual of Dominance & Submission: A Guide to High Protocol Dominance & Submission

Book Review: The Ritual of Dominance & Submission: A Guide to High Protocol Dominance & Submission

One of the more selective skills of a D/s relationship is protocol. Many of the misconceptions is that it’s hard to do and that only the more serious power exchange relationships participate. KnyghtMare and I have some moderate protocol all the time since I love it and he likes control so anytime he gets opportunity [...]
