Advance praise for Different Loving Too

 

Different Loving was a revolutionary and influential book, not just for me personally, but for how kink and BDSM was framed at an important time in our history. By including some of the same interviewees from the original book, as well as adding a whole new batch of kinksters, Different Loving Too continues the tradition. It explores how the kink community has evolved, along with the threads that still connect us to our past. All in all, it’s a fascinating book for anyone interested in BDSM from a personal or academic standpoint.

If you think all people who practice BDSM are the same, think again. Different Loving Too illuminates the wide range of motivations, meanings, and practices of kinksters, and offers a fascinating look behind the dungeon (and bedroom) door. No matter how much experience you do or don’t have in the scene, you’re sure to learn something new.

Readers say Dr. Gloria Brame has changed their lives. Find out why in SEX FOR GROWN-UPS. The ultimate sex-positive adult primer, SEX FOR GROWN-UPS, takes a delightfully original and upbeat approach to sex based on three simple rules--that human sexual behavior is complicated, that sex and gender diversity are normal, and that all adults can have pleasurable sex. In a radical departure from institutionalized theories about what sex should be, Brame explains the facts about what sex actually is, and shows you how to use this information to improve your sex life and relationships. Drawing on sex history, scientific data, sex studies, medical studies, and stories from her private practice, SEX FOR GROWN-UPS gives you sex education you never knew you needed and will always be grateful you received.
