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.
-- Kali Williams, Founder of KinkAcademy.com
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.
