I'm completely a novice, but this opened my eyes

I'm a novice in every sense of the term. I was opened up to the idea by a sub, whom I've now parted ways with. Beyond the sense of the scenes and forms of play, this has actually opened my eyes to whom I wish to be. As its said several times, anyone one can tie someone up or crack a whip (probably not well at that) but being a dom, is significantly more than that, and my preconceived notions were verified by this.

For someone new, such as myself, theres a lot. But for good reason. Read or listen, and understand what's being illustrated here, nothing happens instantaneously, but with the right tools and patience... you'd be surprised.

Overall the book itself was wonderful, content really had me engaged, and the narrator was phenomenal.

Interesting and authentic

This book was not what I expected but I felt like it was more of an introspective on their own personal relationship rather than a how to scenarios. The narrator was great but later seemed to be more about a personal construct in their sexual and religious culture.

great voice reading!

I'm so glad the author let this sexy voice woman read this book, otherwise it would have been man-plained BDSM. I actually learned alot and enjoyed the very detailed descriptions of bondage rigging, proper way to drop candle wax on a lover, and all the safe precautions.

A great book covering all elements of the lifestyl

Very thorough and detailed and a good introduction to the lifestyle for both those who are curious and even the more experienced.
