This morning, we had a visit by a very sweet family. One of the young adult kids is newly curious about kink, and their extremely supportive sister and mom wanted to get them great books to start off their journey.
(I know, right?! Sooooo good!)
We recommended two books that we think do the best job of navigating the worlds of kink dating and the public BDSM scene.
The Kinky Girl's Guide to Dating has been out for a few years now, and honestly the technology mentions in it have become dated and slightly hilarious. (First generation online dating! AOL chat rooms! Phones with cords!) That said, the tips, tricks and safety recommendations are timeless and completely useful, and the humorous anecdotes about navigating the public BDSM scene for the first time are realistic and sensitive. If you can get past the dated technology references, it's a truly great book -- particularly for submissive women and switches.
Both of these books will help your beloved kinky friends and family get off to the right start in their journey, and we recommend them highly.
