Those of you who have been following the site for a while might remember we did a Cover contest and giveaway for Fifty Shades of Passion a few months ago.
A few weeks ago I received my own copy from the publisher and I’m finally ready to write a review of Fifty Shades of Passion An Erotic Guide to Exploring Fifty Shades With Your Lover
The book is a guide of sorts about adding a little kink to your sex life. So if you lived in a world of vanilla sex before Fifty Shades of Grey and want to spice things up, this might be the book for you. Being a single woman, I haven’t had the opportunity to exercise my new knowledge from reading this book, but it has certainly answered some questions.
The book starts out discussing something not so sexy, safe sex. But it’s necessary. Just as Christian wants to be open with Ana and to discuss what she is open to and what she is not. The book encourages the discussions you need to have with your lover before you start playing.
It’s more fun after that, tips on talking dirty, flirting and of course dressing up for the occasion. The author gives some nice introductions to topics and tips, even categorizing them by levels of difficulty/commitment. Other topics that are covered are exhibitionism, voyeurism, sensory deprivation, spanking, flogging, role-playing and much, much more.
What I like about the book is that each chapter has an introduction telling you about the action and why you might like it and then helps you visualize the idea beyond what you’ve read in Fifty Shades of Grey. Then it goes into tips, tricks and toys for the topic, followed by ideas for different levels of activities.
There are also sections on being a Dom and a sub. While these aren’t guides to either role, it does provide some basic advice to help you figure out if that might be a role for you as well as a few tips on what is expected.
The book ends with a nifty glossary of terms, I’ve seen some more detailed ones, but this one will have you covered until you decide to fully engage in the BDSM lifestyle.
I think this is a great book for anyone who wants to or has started to explore some of the kinkier things that were mentioned on Fifty Shades of Grey. The book is well written, and a lot better then some of the sites on the internet. There is no author listed on the book, but the website for the book is relationship coach.
