This book packs one hell of a punch when it comes to providing accurate, intelligent, and useful information. It should: it's textbook thick. It's a wonderful book to pick and choose your way through, as each chapter is written by different authors, all of whom are BDSM and sex experts, respected in their fields.
Tristan Taormino has drawn together an amazing array of authors, including legends like Patrick Califia and and Midori. However, expect to be introduced to brilliant voices as well. Be ready to dive in to a selection of BDSM activities ranging from the not so intimidating (erotic roleplaying) to the far more edgy practices (piercing play and mindfuck). I love that this book does not shy away from the edge or ask the authors to "dial it back" to make things more palatable or "nice." There is room for all levels of perversion in The Ultimate Guide to Kink.
Each chapter is marked by the unique voice of its author. Especially fun to read is Felice Shays chapter on Rough Sex. While delivering safe and accurate information and brilliant ideas, it manages to be exquisitely erotic.
Even the most seasoned pervert will walk away from this book with a new perspective, a new idea, or a new technique! And the beginner will find a wealth of information on safety and how-to's.
I seriously could not recommend this book more!
