Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns: The Romance and Sexual Sorcery of Sadomasochism


(Click Image to View Amazon.com Product Information)

Philip Miller and Molly Devon think that S/M is fun, and “that reading about it should be fun, too.”Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns is definitely fun, not to mention approachable, chatty, and insightful. What makes it truly special, however, is the sheer weight of loving details.

There’s clear explanations and detailed tutorials for beginners, as general as “safe, sane, and consensual” and as specific as “you will be swinging the whip with your arm pivoting at the shoulder.” There’s also solid advice, safety measures, steamy suggestions, plenty of black-and-white photographs, useful and humorous drawings, an extensive glossary, and over 900 entries of S/M clothing and equipment vendors, publications, computer bulletin boards, and organizations worldwide.

As sadomasochism is a practice that’s still taboo for many people, the chapter on finding partners and sharing your fantasies with existing partners can be invaluable.
