It can be a motivating force or a consequence but in the world of BDSM it is a key to unlocking some of the most amazing experiences imaginable.

When I first heard about this book, I was excited to read something that told personal stories about Hardy Haberman. I've seen him speak at events and been to some of his classes, and was eager to hear more. When I read the "about" stuff, I was a little nervous that I would be bored with yet another book on the basics of BDSM. That was far from the case! This book does talk about some of the basic concepts behind what we do in BDSM and why, but it brings that information to you in the form of personal stories about Hardy himself. Brilliant! It gives you the enjoyment of reading a personal story while also imparting information. The stories are also a great way to illustrate the facts discussed in a way that is a great combination of real-life and juicy :)
