Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deviant Desires is a lavishly illustrated guide to the most fascinating and obscure outposts of the erotic frontier. Self-described pervert Katharine Gates takes us on an expedition into the latest sexual communities bursting forth at the beginning of the new millennium. Gone are the pretentious black-clad S/M posers and humorless fetish fashion victims — you'll meet the refreshingly funny and irreverent heroes and heroines of a do-it-yourself porn revolution.

Spurred on by the Internet explosion, these deviants defy all expectations as they actively participate in creating their own erotic entertainment, forging new art, original literature, and fluid sexual identities. Come grab a first peek as they radically subvert mass culture for their own nefarious sexual purposes. Nothing is sacred and anything can be sexualized, from Disney? characters and B-Movie monsters to baked beans, children's birthday balloons and Thanksgiving dinner. You'll never watch TV the same way again!

Also includes:

-Internet search keywords for power-surfing
-Safety DOs and DON'Ts
-Tips and tricks for adventurous neophytes
-Handy fetish road map
-Niche kink sightings on TV and in the movies
-Fetish lingo glossaries and terms
-Fun rainy day cut-and-paste projects
-Amazing objects found in human rectums

Review:

"Fun book! Deep down, everyone wants to be / look / behave like some other creature. Deviant Desires gives us a startling new look at a few of these variations." Fakir Musafar, Father of the Modern Primitive movement

Review:

"Katharine Gates is the smartest / sexiest / bestest / freshest / coolest / funniest sex researcher in the universe. This book is brilliant, thoroughly entertaining, and super-outrageous. Finally someone has done something sexually-oriented that is truly original. I dare you to read it and not get turned on!" Annie Sprinkle, Queen of Kink, artist, author, sex pioneer
