Overview

From the mind that brought you the memoirs Elf Girl and Live Nude Elf comes BDSM 101, a no-nonsense manual for those readers interested in learning about bondage and discipline; dominance and submission; and sadism, masochism, or sadomasochism.

For years, Rev. Jen has been coaching her readers on all sex-related matters through her articles in Penthouse and posts on Nerve, an online magazine. A self-proclaimed authority on the subject of sex (and specifically BDSM), Jen spent her early twenties working as a professional submissive at a swanky Manhattan dungeon before becoming a sex surrogate for a renowned therapist.

In BDSM 101, Jen shares rare insight into this oftentimes misunderstood world. Practical instructions are given on safety, communication, bondage, spanking, flogging, fetishes, humiliation, dirty talk, and more. Included are steamy, sometimes ridiculous anecdotes from Jen’s past, interviews with her wacky artist friends, and basic illustrations. According to the author, “This book is what would happen if Marquis de Sade, Andy Warhol, and Dorothy Parker got together and made a nymphomaniac Bride of Frankenstein.”

Useful, entertaining, and written with rare candor, BDSM 101 is something you’ll want to read aloud at parties and also use privately with lovers. It will become an indispensable part of your library of perversion.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rev. Jen Miller (Elf Girl; Live Nude Elf) has put together a beginner's guide to BDSM by drawing upon her experience as a sex surrogate to a renowned therapist, working as a "sub" (someone who likes to play the submissive/masochist role, as opposed to a Dom, who plays a dominant/sadist role)and writer for Penthouse and Nerve.com. Introductory topics include safety, a glossary of terms, and ways to approach sexual interests with a partner. The book describes different types of BDSM play as well as the techniques, toys, and skills needed to participate in activities such as verbal and physical humiliation, spanking, flagellation, role-play, temperature play, and bondage. The author combines advice from Dom friends and stories from her own experience. VERDICT Playing off the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, Rev. Jen has compiled a simple and funny yet serious how-to for those interested in exploring BDSM outside of the topic's growing popularity in fiction. Recommended to readers interested in sexual variety, particularly BDSM beginners, and others looking for new ideas for their sexual relationships.—Scott Vieira, Sam Houston State Univ.
