About author

Dossie Easton and Janet Hardey are very well-known not just in the kink community, but also in the poly community. Ever heard of a little book called The Ethical Slut?
    • Expert author
    • Multiple contributoring authors
    • Very personal approach

Content / Style / Audience

This book is written in a personal style and covers a variety of topics on BDSM. The 17 chapters begin by defining basic terms, then delve into interpersonal dynamics, ethics, communication, rights, and responsibilities. While there is only limited discussion of specific techniques, power dynamics are covered, and there are many personal examples and stories scattered throughout. Only a very unimaginative person could read this book and not get a few new ideas. The later parts of the book discuss toys, safety and handling emergencies, and finding partners. The tone is enthusiastic and personal. While it is geared towards beginners, it can be and is of value to more experienced players.
