About The Loving Dominant:
John Warren, a long-time player in the scene, brings his decades of experience to this in-depth treatment of BDSM. The Loving Dominant is both an accessible introduction to the scene and a comprehensive manual offering down-to-earth information on a variety of facets of D/s, including mental aspects of D/s; style; fantasy; stalking the elusive wild submissive; converting a vanilla spouse or lover; a variety of technical details (including basic toy-making patterns and an entire chapter on BDSM photography) and, most importantly, the hidden basis of the D/S relationship: the care, trust, and love between partners. Brimming with wisdom and clear-eyed advice and complete with a source list at the end, The Loving Dominant will enlighten both the curious novice and the not-quite-jaded adept. It is sure to a serve as a handbook for loving dominants of all genders and orientations.
