This book won't really surprise anyone with even an average experience of the BDSM scene (or an average amount of commonsense and imagination!) with regard to the "educational" advice given, such as basic safety tips, ideas on ways to improvise cheap home-made versions of expensive shop-bought toys, and so on. This isn't a book for anyone hoping to build on existing BDSM know-how, and nor is it meant to be. The book acknowledges that femdom can be intimidating for the novice lady and thus it's aimed at novices, intending to reassure and guide those who may doubt their abilities to act the domme rôle; as such, it succeeds. It is written in a gentle and loving style and avoids any kind of sleazy or pornographic overtones which could put off an aspiring domme who is turned off by the rather cheap and nasty "top-shelf" magazine images of the generic dominatrix. The book is more or less a "how to get started" guide for loving couples/partners and, though it contains quite basic information,it does give a positive and encouraging view of both the joys and the problems of learning to become a domme. Not recommended for advanced or even intermediate "players", but great for those wondering how and where to start.
This would be an especially good book for a sub male to give to his inexperienced but hopefully domme partner, and for him to read too, as it does make clear that, for many women, acting the domme rôle isn't exactly as easy as it looks, and can take quite some emotional and practical effort. All in all, if the book were a bit more detailed, with more than one example scenario included (although the given scenario would be a good "starting point"), I'd have given it five stars.

The gentlest introduction to femdom. The introduction even addresses the woman whose husband/lover took a huge risk to give her the book. Gives a fair treatment of the emotional issues facing the woman whose socialization is to be nice, pleasant, and receiving. Excellent discussion of processing emotions afterward. Good for the hopeful sub and for the domina with training wheels.

This book is a good, gentle introduction for the absolute beginner, but if you are past that stage I'd suggest trying The Topping Book or Screw The Roses instead. It would be a good book for a hopeful would-be-sub to offer their uninitiated partner, or for a kean and unconnected novice to start with. It's only a slender volume, and thus perhaps not worth the purchase price unless you really haven't a clue how to get started. For all that, I still liked it and would use it as a primer if someone asked me about the topic.

The Sexually Dominant Woman is custom made for the first time fledgling Fem dom. Written as much for the woman interested in exploring her dominant side as for her submissive partner, it addresses such fundamentals of successful domination as negotiation, safety, setting the mood, ethics, and more in an easily understood , non judgmental manner. From warm up to cool down, (and all the delicious parts in-between), Lady Green makes a comforting and informative guide. It even includes a a sample scene and tips for modifying it to suit an individual couples needs. Slightly more advanced players might do better with "S/M 101" or "Screw the roses, send me the thorns", but for the woman who is just beginning her journey it is a perfect introduction into feminine domination.

This book is honest, open, sincere, and maintains a sense of humor throughout- just like the participant should be in their approach. The book dispells some of the taboos without losing one bit of the sense of fun, play and empowerment that s/m play and loving can have. It is so nice to see the key elements for safe, sane, and consensual fun are identified and de-mystified. A great starting point for any one curious or inquisitive about this aspect of sexual and loving experiences. Also a super help for those shy men with difficulty on how to bring up the subject for their partners.

This book can be read in one night, it does not guide you through a how to do BDSM it is nothing more than a guide to common sense. I'm sorry I bought it

This book is directed towards the women who wants to experience the pleasure of dominating. But if you already know just a little about this universe you really wont learn anything new by reading this book.

Great for someone new to the fettish scene but I found it very basic.
