"Steeped in aphorisms as real as Mom's apple pie, Jack Rinella's refreshing new book provides a wise and experienced appraisal for finding and living leather relationships in the world of 21st century BDSM." - William A. Henkin, Ph.D., co-author, Consensual Sadomasochism: How to Talk About It and How to Do It Safely
Is it possible to form lasting, healthy, loving relationships that are based on power, control and pain? Of course, says Jack Rinella, author of The Master's Manual and The Compleat Slave. Respected columnist and scene leader Rinella has carefully explored how BDSM relationships fit into real people's lives. From that research, and his own two decades as an active leatherman, he has assembled this sensible, readable manual about how kinky relationships really work. You'll learn how to decide what you want from a relationship, find partners, distinguish between fantasy and reality, negotiate agreements to accommodate your changing needs and desires, resolve conflicts, and much more. No kinky person's bookshelf should be without this important volume!
Author of The Master's Manual and The Compleat Slave, Jack Rinella is a founding member of MAsT-Chicago, an associate member of the Chicago Hellfire Club, and a weekly columnist for Gay Chicago Magazine. He lives on the north side of Chicago with his slave Patrick, where he passes the time writing, cruising, and falling in love whenever he can.
