Publisher's Summary

The Ultimate Guide to Kink is the first major guide to BDSM in a generation - a bold and sexy collection of essays that run the gamut from expert how-to tutorials to provocative essays that delve into complex questions about desire, power, and pleasure. The book brings together diverse voices from the kink community in an unprecedented way: each chapter is written by a different sexuality/BDSM educator. Divided into two sections, the first section features thorough, thoughtful pieces - on everything from flogging to bondage. The second section is dedicated to role-playing fantasies and personal manifestos. From age play to masochism, these chapters cover some of the edgiest, most taboo and controversial elements of kink in depth. The Ultimate Guide to Kink features the expertise of renowned educators writing passionately on their favorite subjects, including Patrick Califia, Midori, Laura Antoniou, Barbara Carrellas, Lee Harrington, Jack Rinella, Lolita Wolf, Madison Young, Hardy Haberman, Felice Shays, Ignacio Rivera, Sarah Sloane, Mollena Williams, FifthAngel, and Edge. It will educate, inspire, and challenge both newcomers to the world of kink and experienced BDSM players.

A little different from what I expected, but good

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It depends on which friend. The content is very graphic and would be selective with whom I shared this title.

Have you listened to any of Anneliese Rennie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not

Any additional comments?

I received this title in exchange for a review. I enjoyed this title, but it would not land anywhere near my top ten. But that is largely based on the genre

Interesting Info, Horrible Narrator!

Any additional comments?

I don't like to write negative reviews. But the narrator was THE MOST annoying narrator I have heard in over 5 years of listening to audio books! She used a sing-song voice, ending every other sentence with an up - swing in her singing narrative. I don't know how else to describe it. But this is not a subject that lends itself to sing-song.

Now I have played around the fringes of the kink community. I think a book like this is a great way to enlighten the curious. There are so many misconceptions about kink. It is NOT a bunch of cruel, sadistic bullies taking advantage of weak - minded people. For the most part, the kink community is very responsible and dilegently strives to ensure that participants are educated in all forms of safety while indulging in their kinky preference.

I really wish I had a copy of the book to review. Apparently, there are personal examples and comments in the margins, but with the narration, there is no way to know when one of these "extras" is being read apart from the main body of the book. It becomes quite confusing.

There is a lot of good information in this book. But I thought it was almost impossible to separate the info from the completely annoying narration!Do yourself a favor and buy the book, not this audio version. I couldn't make myself finish this audio version. I hate to admit that.

I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book to review fairly.
