The first thing to say about this book is that its author is not the Will Henry renowned for his cowboy stories. This book is about erotic bondage, the practice of partners consensually restraining each other for purpose of arousal. Bondage may or may not include clothing fetishism or dressing males as females, humiliation, or corporal punishment in one or more of its many forms, and this book provides a useful introduction to the variety and psychology involved, with the help of many case studies, described in enthusiastic detail. The descriptions extend to the involvement of third parties, acting as dominants or submissives, recruited as integral components of the arousal process. The book will delight many enthusiasts, but leave quite cold those who find no personal interest in the practices described, but it is well written and interesting, even on an analytical level.
