    An excellent insight into a misunderstood lifestyle

    This is an important book that delves into the fascinating and misunderstood world of Female Domination. Written by a practising psychologist, this work provides crucial insights into the mentality and attitudes that drive this alternative lifestyle. The author arrives at several key conclusions of the origins, development and long-term practice of why and how significant numbers of men yearn then continue to worship a dominant woman, as well as what goes on within these special women themselves. She cites little known truths of Christianity whereby Female Domination is quite compatible with scripture, as well as identifying contemporary trigger points for men who wake up to their own deep stirrings of wanting to submit to a woman. Her literary references to back up her opinion of women as the superior sex are ample and solid. But this is not a feminist diatribe. Elise Sutton is clearly influenced by a deep love for men and a desire to see them at their best. Indeed the sub-title of the book is `An exploration of the male desire for Loving Female Authority'. She makes it clear that a submissive male must not see himself as a wimp. The male has every right, duty even, to be strong in his affairs and strong for his Lady. The author eloquently and, yes, romantically states: `The man should be his Queen's friend, partner, lover, servant and slave. A woman needs all of this in a man'. The author uses some 40 case studies to back up her work. Every major strand of the lifestyle is examined including role reversal, leather sex, cuckcolding, feminization, disciplining versus punishment, strap-on play, humiliation play, age regression, male chastity, and fetishes. The author emphasizes that Female Domination is a big tent: There are many practices that find a home here but there is no obligation to undertake all of them. This is a well thought out piece of work that will offer reassurance and direction to those who need help to work out their inner most thoughts and feelings. It will hopefully go on to be a gound breaking philosophy for revitalizing relationships between men and women, and offer a sound foundation for the rejuvenation of family life.

    I Also Recommend:

    Okay, but not as good as her others

    I liked this book but found it less well written than her second book or her last. This one seemed a little too cut-and-paste. Though I liked reading it anyway. But I recommend her others before this one.

    Going Beyond The Book, the Fact of the Fiction!

    I am a teacher and student of the Word and have written loving FemDom stories. I want women to grow into responsible partners with their males. Beyond bedroom play, anything that diminishes a person of either sex is wrong and not of love. It is amazing how a radical culture will accept the credentials of anyone as long as what is said aligns with their own wishful thinking. Sutton (not her real name) insinuates she has credibility, authority, experience, knowledge, insight and a loving nature. Would a loving wife and Christian endorse cuckolding? NO! But Sutton does. Would a loving mother want her son to do housework instead of homework and deny him an opportunity for college and career advancement? No! But her website does. Sutton claims authority based on certifications and licensing not in evidence while going against well known and widely published studies on human sexuality and psycho-sexuality. She claims men are intellectually inferior to women but neglects to mention that men on average, score much higher in testing and even higher when applying lessons learned. Maybe Sutton¿s rhetoric just bores her male students out of their chairs! Men are promised a better more intimate sexual relationship only to be lied to. After a man is conditioned and addicted to the dregs leftover from a cheating wife, what is he going to say when he is asked if he is happy? What can he say when he has no one to take care of him, no other home to go to, no outreach for battered and abused men, while his wife holds title to all cars, property, bank accounts and even his clothes? The authoress would have one believe that women hold a unique power over men yet woman demonstrate a much higher susceptibility to dominant pressures (note the ¿battered wife syndrome¿.) How much trouble would a man be in if he suggested turning the tables on women? As far as biblical knowledge, the authoress mistranslates the word ¿helpmeet¿ (that word does not exist.) Then using an incorrect root she makes an incredible assumption that ¿helper¿ is a position closer to God while ignoring all the other scripture placing man as the head of the family. Sutton¿s website has letters from women that have put her words into practice and form the basis of her ¿case¿ histories. Among them, she openly supports: the enforced chastity of men to gain a psychological and physiological advantage for dominant women- molestation of boys so that they might learn to fear and obey the dominant woman- extramarital affairs for the female as affirmation of her power. If you are looking for kinky fiction to turn you on, buy this book. If you are a real man or real woman looking for loving dominance, this book is not for you! There is nothing loving about this book, its author nor the website it leads you to. It is just a contrived attempt to put a pseudo-scholarly face on a new kink.

    Female Domination - A Step Towards The Positive

    Elise Sutton has written a most illuminating book on the socio/spiritual/religio/psychology of the male quest for submission to a 'loving Female Domination'. This is not a book of 'kink' or 'deviant delights', but a presentation of the sincere and valid desire of many males (and Females) for a return (at least in their own lives, if not throughout the greater social arena)to 'the original order of creation', of Female Superiority. The author makes it clear that this is not a sinking into a lower status of 'wimp' for the male, but rather is an acievement of some stature to evolve into what he truly should be: a subservient slave to his loving and considerate, but strict and wise Superior Female. This slavery and submission is all encompassing, not just relegated to behind closed bedroom doors. It has its existential actualization in all areas of life's experience. The male discovers and fulfills his nature only when achieving the satisfactiuon of the Female's wishes and pleasures and needs-- hardly the task for a wimpish nature. It requires the true male's resilience to be relentless and persistent and consistent in his quest to faithfull serve 'The Woman'. (And yes, this CAN at times call for the male to assume apparant degrading and debasing and demeaning postures and services . . . but where is the dishonor in that? when it fulfills his nature and contributes to the Dominance of the Female? There remains an entire future evolving in this constantly expanding realm of 'Female Superiority', but this book by Elise Sutton at least is a step in the right direction in understanding this new 'return to our origins' as well as a contribution toward it's further development. This book should be read by all, males or Female . .and whether you now subscribe to this concept of 'male submission and Female Domination' or not. Ms Sutton may open your eyes at least a bit to a more clear and reasoned understanding of the inevitable future.

    Finally, a FemDom book done right!

    After an exhaustive search for quality literature involving female dominance in marriages, I have finally found it. Although not focused entirely on married couples, I appreciated the book's attention to FemDom marital relationships. Not only does the author explain why men seek dominance in relationships, she very effectively explains how to achieve it. I recommend it as useful reading for both men and women. Whether you're in a FemDom relationship, seeking one, or have been asked to become your mate's FemDom, this book is perhaps the most informative I've read. It is also fun to read. It is much more then a 'how to manual.' It is entertaining. I particularly enjoyed how real life interviews with couples are used to demonstrate concepts. Those interviews were not only insightful; they give the reader a number of ideas for dominance techniques. The book is well thought out. Because it covers so many topics (i.e. discipline, humiliation, feminization, chastity, etc.) the book is sure to appeal to you on some level, if not several levels. Buy the book, but be careful! Once your lady reads this one, things may never be the same!
