Sting factor (kink): 5 out of 5
Interested in spicing up your love life? Ever have that yearning for something more but not sure what it is or what it means? Interested in something kinky and not sure where to start? Which book will help? The Ultimate Guide to Kink is the book for you! This book is great for beginners to learn about the skills and philosophies of BDSM. The book is divided into two sections. The first ten chapters feature popular BDSM skill sets. The second ten chapters focus on fantasies and philosophies. I found this book to be awesome and will be recommending to all the new to BDSM readers and kinksters alike.
I think this book is even good for those who have been around for awhile. It’s a great refresher. What I liked most is each chapter was written by a person who specialized in that topic. This meant each writing style and instructions were different. Some were better than others. Or it could be some appealed to me more than others. The only reason I didn’t rate this book from a writing perspective as 5 star is because I felt there should be more diagrams and pictures. For a beginner book where people aren’t sure about tools and skills, pictures are worth a thousand words. This is why I appreciated chapter five’s bondage for sex by Midori. The illustrations and simple to follow instructions were helpful.
Reading this book, there were many takeaways I highlighted and bookmarked. Different than my usual book reviews, I’m going to mention the sections I liked best. If I mentioned everything I highlighted, I’d end up with a thirty page cliff notes.
