Publisher Comments:

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


Includes bibliographical references (p. 271-272)and index.

Wanting more than boring, regular sex, I was given "Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns" by a man that was to become my Dom. Ignorant about what BDSM really was and the terminology, he felt the book would answer many of my questions. He was right. After reading the book I felt certain that my choice in a Dom was the correct one.

The authors say never to have a D/s relationship with someone that refuses to use "safe words" and they are right. To their advice I add, never seek a Dom without first reading the book from cover to cover. A perfect starter for anyone entering the arena of non-vanilla romance and sex.
