Overview

A bestseller, and for good reason!

This book will tell you all about sadomasochism. We made it light-hearted and fun to read because SM is fun to do. That's why we do it. But fun is only SM's overture; for those who grasp its message, SM is sexual magic. The right blend of trust, fantasy, and sensuality creates an intensely erotic and deeply intimate stew. We take away our lovers' freedom and lead them to profound liberty. We peer into the dark together, transforming it to light.

In these pages you will find clear explanations for the curious, and solid advice, safety measures and steamy suggestions for the adventurous. Also included are: over 225 photographs and illustrations, designs for making your own SM equipment, over 9000 entries of SM clothing and equipment vendors, publications, and organizations, bondage, flogging and bullwhip tutorials, an extensive, 15 page glossary, Foreword by Dr. William Granzig, President of The American Board of Sexology.

Allow us to guide you through the captivating realms of sensuality, dreamed of by millions, realized by few, and understood by fewer still.

I can not say it enough... this book is the ultimate newbie guide to the BDSM lifestyle,weather a Top or bottom. It explains many things from the definitions of roles, contracts, and most importantly.. how the mental aspect is just as important as the physical .

A really friendly book, whether you're a novice or Pro. Informative without being encyclopedic. Philip and molly really bring you into the S&M world without making you intimidated. :)

There is so much misinformation out there about SM that it just makes me sick. This is especially true of fiction. Therefore I'm especailly glad that Screw The Roses is in print. This is one of the most realistic, useful books out there and I recommend it all the time. It is very well illustrated, the authors clearly know their stuff, and it is light and easy to read with a lot of humor in it. The only suggestion I would make is that you see if your local Barnes and Noble carries this book on it's shelves. Its very important that accurate information be as widely available as possible because the inaccurate information sure is.

BDSM is not something that you just dive into. You need to learn how to do it first. Philip and Molly have written a wonderful book that will teach you how to do just that. The book is comprehensively organized and has a nice sense of humor. It is also more illustrated than the other SM books. It has a very good section on bondage and a very good section on whipping. In some ways, the book tries to do a bit to much. It goes into things like electricity play and fisting but should do so in greater detail. The book is also written exclusively from a dominant-male/submissive-female point of view, so I guess that is both a + and a -. Overall, this was a good quality realistically written book that I recommend.
