The content is antiquated, and I did not enjoy the authors' take on things. There are better BDSM books out there.
I am a novice dom from KY and my sub bought this book for me, saying that I might enjoy reading it. Well she was more than right, I would recommend this to anyone interested in the lifestyle, whether passing interest or more then passing interest. This book is well written, informative and certainly not boring. Also, the chapter that Libby writes gave me some insights into the mind of my other half, and the book in general gave very good ideas for keeping scenes fun, not to mention hot! A great read!
John Warren's 'The Loving Dominant' is a must read (or reread) for anyone interested or involved in consensual kink (BDSM or Bondage/Discipline/Dominance/Submission/Sado-Mosochism, to spell it all out.) From whacks to waxing, consent to contracts, and much, much more, this gentle and informative insider's view of BDSM has lots to offer to the old timer and the beginner alike.
John Warren's updated and revised new publication of his already-popular 'The Loving Dominant' is finally out! For years, this was considered one of the 'must have' books for anyone just discovering the world of SM, but also a 'must reread' for those of us who've been around the block a few times. It never hurts to be reminded of how to play safely, but it's his great ideas for hot, exciting scenes that keep a relationship fresh. This book is slanted towards the dominant in a relationship, but is a good read for submissives as well, not only for the insight into the workings of a dominant's mind, but for the words of wisdom from John's own wife, Libby. It's balanced, useful, and original.
This updated version of the original (which was out of print for a few years) is an excellent reference for those either new to SM, or those looking for a few 'refresher' points. There are several topics not covered or covered well in other 'intro' books, such as introducing a 'vanilla' partner to SM, how to act at a play party, and taking memorable pictures of your own private scenes. Also included in the book are sections on First Aid, 'Stalking the Wild Submissive,' and ways to do scenes that are exciting both for the Dominant and the submissive. I especially liked the chapter John Warren's wife Libby wrote about being a submissive. It gives an excellent insight into what being a submissive is all about. There are also appendices in the back of the book covering areas like 'slave contracts,' a bdsm glossary of terms, a list of SM groups, and cleaning up after a scene. John Warren has written a truly fine book about 'what it is that we do.'
