This is a small book, 154x101mm, with 103 pages, on the subject of canes and their use. The canes in question are of the type derived from the age-old use of scholastic chastisement, but which are now used almost exclusively for the erotic purpose of stimulating (mostly) the nether regions of those who enjoy such stimuli, either as a prelude to more conventional erotic activities, or not. It could be said that the book contains nothing that is not freely available on websites devoted to corporal chastisement, but there is a major advantage in having the material collected here by a sympathetic, even enthusiastic, author who provides a uniform treatment, suitable for curious beginners, which will provide them with safe habits, whether as providers or consenting recipients of caning. The range of implements suitable for use, and common sense techniques are described, using a sprinkling of necessary illustrations which are in themselves non-erotic, but adequate for the purpose. Advice is provided for both caners and canees, striving to avoid the possible pitfalls awaiting those intend on exploring the pleasure/pain boundary. The book can be recommended for those who are curious, but in some trepidation, given the aura of infamy that is perceived by many 'outsiders'.
