Viviana’s Review: 

 Judging a book by its cover (yeah, don’t give me that look, we all do it!) it didn’t look like much and to be honest, the “for Nice People” didn’t make me want to take this book serious and it actually bothered me.  Are people who practice BDSM not nice? Of course not!! Jeez! A better title would have been “Intro to BDSM” or “BDSM for Newbies” (okay, so that’s not really a good title, but it brings truth to the book!) or even “Curious about BDSM”. Well, you get the idea. 

Moving on………..

This is an introduction to the world of BDSM. It doesn’t dive deep into BDSM, rather it leads those who are curious in possibly starting their journey at a leisurely pace. The authors have provided the readers with a glimpse of the BDSM world and provided enough information to help guide them in the process of new discoveries.  They did a great job in simplifying terms and letting the reader to know it’s not all about whips, chains, and restraints.  Oh My!  

Again, this is an introductory book into a world that isn’t simple. There’s lots of emotions and trust between the partners that needs to be had. This is a great book though for a couple who wants to add a little spice to bedroom (or any other room or no rooms at all). 

The book did crack me up in two places and I’ll share one with you all now. 
“Section 19 – Talk Dirty to Me

Voice tone is another element of dirty talk that should be considered. Dirty talk should be low, throaty and erotic. Remember: you’re reveling in sexual abandon, not placing an order at a drive-thru window.”

Okay, tell me that you’re not imagining the scene in your head…. Right?

I was surprised that I liked the book as much as I did. I was concerned that it would be adding to the misconception of what BDSM entails due to the popular book its referencing but they did a good job bringing it down to the basics and simplifying it. 

Yes! I did highlight some things. I’m sure you would too! ;)
