Which non fiction BDSM books would you recommend to an avid book reader of all things kinky?

imp imp
I'm curious as to what books you have all read. Which ones you think highly of and which books you think personally were no good to you or anyone else for that matter. The poll covers 'some' books which seem to commonly appear on 'must read' lists.

If 'other' please let us know which ones they are.

Are there books that you think Eden Fantasys should stock that are currently not available within the site?

What about BDSM themed non fiction books? What would you like to see more of? What are your favorites?

Would love to see some of the less common ones here on EF. As well as "The New Topping Book".

Kinda why I am asking as there are quite a few people delving into kink so a good collection of decent books would be great. I agree the New Topping Book should be there too As Well as the Loving Dominant.

Now that I've read quite a few of them, I'd have to say that I think SM 101 is probably the most informative of them all.

I kinda got bored with SM101 lol. Screw the Roses was more of a good read with great humor and both sides.

I actually wasn't too bored with SM 101. I got bored with The Loving Dominant, but I haven't read Screw the Roses yet.

Meh, I'll try any book, and if I'm interested, I'll try what's in it.

I haven't gotten around to SM 101 yet, but I've read "The New Topping Book" and "The New Bottoming Book" by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy, as well as "Sensuous Magic: A Guide to S/M for Adventurous Couples" by Patrick Califia.

Not BDSM related, but I'm really looking forward to reading "The Ethical Slut" as well.

SM101 is very informative ^^

I found "The Loving Dominant" to be extremely creepy. There was just some stuff in that book that was a little over the top and I am a very, very kinky person. :\

New topping is good. When someone you love is kinky is an overview of technical terms, so it might not be useful for someone who knows the kink-inclined things
