There is some OK information in the book, however there are parts that make me question it’s value.
For example, there is a line that says “BDSM can be consensual”.
If, you are involved in any act with another person and it is not consensual, you are likely abusing or raping the other person.
The book brings up some good points, such as safety. However the author recommends a knife. Paramedic scissors, designed to slide along the skin without cutting are the recommended safety tool, knifes can make the situation worse.
At points in the reading I did get a good laugh. The problem is that I am not sure the author intended to create a humorous experience. My favorite example is the section on oral pleasure. The author writes that you should have the submissive start with a toy and develop their skills. Then when they are ready, it is time for “real thing or actual”.
The phrasing in the book creates inaccuracies in some places and is just amusing in others.
Overall, the book dances through the world of D/s, giving you some ideas that would require significant additional research. If you are looking for a high level overview, this book is not bad. If you are expecting an in-depth look into a world that both interests and frightens you, this book is likely to be confusing and more detrimental than a positive introduction.
