Mixing erotic vignettes with practical how-to advice and personal insight, Sensuous Magic is the author's guide to sadomasochism for couples.

Experienced players will appreciate the author's knowledge of S/M safety and his insight into S/M psychology. Novices will be reassured by the book's honest, frank approach.
This new edition discusses myths about S/M, the psychology of bondage, communication and negotiation, techniques of pleasure and sensation (including tickling, pressure, temperature, impact play, and whipping), and sex in S/M scenes. Also included are a glossary, updated bibliography, and resource guide.
