Publisher's Summary

The ultimate audiobook for the dom and sub that goes deeper into BDSM, what it is and why it is gaining in popularity and acceptance in the mainstream. This advanced guide answers every question about bondage, submission, sadism, and masochism for the first-time curious and those already part of the Kink scene.

This audiobook is the Kink Bible of today, revealing hidden truths about the practices, the people and the assumptions about BDSM that have been misrepresented on TV, in movies, and books.

Alisa Held, the author of this audiobook, has over two decades of experience as a practitioner of BDSM as well as a chronicler of the changes witnessed within the Kink community since the beginning of the modern century. This guide presents the facts about BDSM, explaining with often brutal honesty exactly why men and women are drawn to this alternative sexual lifestyle, and how true relational happiness, once believed impossible to attain, has been found by practitioners in bondage and discipline, including the author himself.

Are you curious about BDSM and have thought about experiencing the kink life for yourself? The author explains how to meet the right partner for the journey into pain and pleasure, how to become the best Master possible, and a step-by-step guide in submissive training.

  • Beginners guide to BDSM, what it is and what it isn’t
  • Removing false assumptions about bondage and discipline
  • The fact that everyone tend to be either sadists or masochists, and why BDSM is the perfect outlet for these human predispositions
  • What erotic bondage romance novels don’t understand about real BDSM and Kink
  • What bondage sex feels like, and why it’s so much hotter than “vanilla” sex
  • How lifelong bonds of love and trust are created between BDSM partners
  • The differences between “vanilla” sex and BDSM sex.
  • How to achieve body-shaking orgasms through pain and pleasure never before believed possible through BDSM sex
  • BDSM is not only about sex, and why sex is really a step along the way
  • Why surrendering power to another is the most liberating act someone will do
  • Why feminists believe BDSM allows women to assert ultimate independence
  • Advice to both dominant and submissive before beginning their journey
  • Answers to the most common (and most uncommon) terms used in BDSM kink 

This advanced guide is more than just a simple overview of a topic that’s been written about hundreds of times, describing the world of kink in a salacious, tabloid style by writers with no personal knowledge of bondage and discipline. This guide reveals the honest truth about BDSM that will change the way listeners understand the practice forever.

Well Recommended

Was given a promo code from Alisa in exchange for an honest review and I thought it was an excellent book with great narration. I am completely new to BDSM so some parts were a bit hard to understand but other than that I highly enjoyed it.

I'm curious.

Picked the book because I'm on lockdown with my girlfriend. Definitely going to try out some of these ideas.

if you're new to the whole idea it's still a good listen.

A good all round book

I was given this audiobook for free at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The book was very well put together and a lot of great, insightful tips were given. The author clearly has a higher understanding of BDSM than other books I have read/listened to in this niche. However, I didn't really like the fictional short stories inbetween the non-fiction content. I found myself skipping most of this out.

Poorly written and way too political.

There is some good parts, but obviously this "author" has a big problem with keeping propaganda out of BDSM..

very bad

Bad just bad. This was haphazardly thrown together. Sections repeat and 1/2 way through the entire book quit working and chapters were not accessible. The content is high questionable as well. Salves must be willing to do anything a master says and have not safe word?!? Regardless of your play the lifestyle is all about communication first.

It was definitely an interesting listen, i was midly interested in the subject matter looking to explore it more a good story and good naration kept me invested.
the book is a light read so it keeps your attention good if you want to get alot of information in the span of an afternoon or two.
the naration is crisp and clear, great experience overall.

Lots of information and thorough

This book definitely helped me to fill in a few of the blanks about what I know about BDSM. Anyone that's interested but wants to know more should definitely give this book a listen. I didn't even realize how much I didn't know.

A Nice Guide

Covered a lot of topics I wasn't even aware of. The author comes across as very experienced and explains his points with some nice real life examples. The only downside I would say, was I stuggled to understand the narrator a couple of times but I'd still give the book a 5 star.

*Book was given to me for free by author in exchange for my honest review
