BDSM is only “fictitious”?

Before I get started: is it just me, or is there next to nothing in the way of kink-themed nonfiction? I have a small collection of educational books, but I’m really struggling to find any more.

Anyway… while I was looking on Amazon, I came across a few strange reviews. No surprises there! But it is no help whatsoever to me when hugely conservative people insist on reviewing kinky books. I don’t care if you’re praying for those of us with filthy minds (or not praying, and thinking we deserve to rot in hell!); I want to know if the book is any good!

It’s no surprise many people go a little crazy when they encounter kink – in fact, I really wouldn’t want to live in a world where they didn’t. I don’t want every book I read to involve BDSM (though a look at my Goodreads shelves might tell you otherwise!). I have a variety of boards on Pinterest – I’m not one of those who only shares pictures of bondage.

But yesterday when I was trying desperately to find a new nonfiction BDSM-themed book, I came across another strange review on Amazon. The review was for a “how-to” kind of BDSM book.

Apparently (and I add a very big sic to all of the errors!):

the vile things in here I can not understand why anyone would want to do such things, or IF they even do. to take our God’s gift of relationships…

There are MANY good safe christian books out there that address love making with your MARRIED partner. I think anyone looking here should go there for “the truth”. This is purely fictious

#1 Yeah, people do do the things in the book. That is why there’s a book about them!

#2 Why bring Christianity into it? Some BDSMers are Christian, some are other religions, some are none at all. Religion is completely irrelevant to what two consenting adults (and yes, often MARRIED adults) choose to do in the bedroom (or dungeon!). I haven’t ever read the Bible cover to cover, but I am pretty confident in being able to say that God or Jesus or whoever never had much of a position on pony-play or fire play!

I suppose everyone was ignorant about these things at some point in their life – like the woman I encountered in an online erotic romance discussion a little while ago. She was getting angry at everyone for excluding her from the conversation by using the secret code term BDSM!

  1. The Jesus facepalm = epic

  2. How bad can things possibly get… *sigh*
    I agree with you that there are few good non-fiction books on BDSM…

    Fundamentalists are funny! 😀 I love ’em! Maybe I should get a how-to manual too. I also would like one on building a spanking machine or torture machine.
