Publisher's Summary

Mixing erotic vignettes with practical how-to advice and personal insight, Sensuous Magic is the author's guide to sadomasochism for couples. For readers who harbor fantasies of erotic dominance and submission, Sensuous Magic demystifies S/M, explaining terminology and technique. 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.

Not Sensuous just nasty

What disappointed you about Sensuous Magic?

Sensuality I believe has to do with feelings this has more to do with gymnastics and friction.

What could Patrick Califia have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

There is little love more about sex acts.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

No emotion that is the problem.
