"A collection of entertaining, crazy fantasies... this giant, luxurious tome features a lurid range of art from a global ensemble of artists." --Bizarre
"Far from being a seedy, frightening world of pain, power and darkness, my dungeon is more like an arena for adult role-play, where fantasies are explored and the mind freed from everyday stresses. Everybody needs escapism. For some, it's skiing or stamp-collecting; for others it's dressing as a schoolboy and getting spanked by a 6ft stuntwoman in a corset." --Interview and feature in The Independent on Sunday

There seems to be a never ending supply of new books about BDSM and fetish lifestyles but most follow the same of formula of how I was a nice girl who ended up whipping men. This is no such book. It takes it from a very different viewpoint of why men want to be treated the way they do by a dominatrix. It does not set out to explain it, rationalize it or anything so deep. It just sets out, very well, to allow you the reader to read in men's words why they seek these services.
If you're looking for a biography, this is not the book for you. If you interested in reading why men do this, then this is a pretty good place to start.
As the first review says this book has a totally different angle on the subject of a dominatrix & the requests & desires of her clients. Of course there is some background in to Mistress Xena or Madam X as she is referred as well, with some great pictures & artwork of her & related areas of the role she sees herself in. This is all appropriately & cleverly related to the subject discussed in the sections of the book. Predominately the book features a selection of the countless emails, letters, notes she has received from the vast number of clients wanting to obtain her service as a dominatrix. As the previous review says this book seeks to show & explain why clients wish to see a Dominatrix & what they hope they will have done to them! Wishing to have their desires fulfilled & the varied type of scenarios shown through the letters is fascinating! There are all types of letters some hand written poorly or immaculately, some typed, emailed, etc. The actual variation is what makes it so different.
I would say that you do not have to have a genuine interest in this subject to enjoy the book. As the "Reading Geek" stated this is not a biography, you can find so many of them anywhere! It's a collection of peoples thoughts, hopes & desires all sent to Mistress Xena, a professional dominatrix & shown from the requesters perspective in an open minded manor which I thought was really fun & very refreshing!
In comparison to most of the unreadable drivel out there this book is unique and has such an eye catching cover you wouldn`t feel embarrassed to leave it on show.
I cant recommend this highly enough - A brilliant book written by an honest and amazing author.
