It has come to my attention that people are reading a book called Fifty Shades of Grey, and then getting an impression of the BDSM community from it. So, I picked up a copy and flipped through it.

It is a poor representation of kink.

If you do want to get an introduction into BDSM, there are some really good books you can read, like Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns and S&M 101.

If you’re interested in the Poly lifestyle, I would also recommend Opening Up and The Ethical Slut.

I would beg you, as humbly as I can, to please read those books if you want to get into BDSM. While you’re at it, there is a subreddit for this as well. There are also online communities like and

Or if you must read BDSM fiction, Ann Rice does some good stuff in the Beauty series.

I also recommend Love & the Desert by J.D. DeLemont because it’s normal people being kinky and I think there should be more of that.

But please remember that fiction is fiction, and never put things you read in fiction into practice in real life without research into safety and support.

If the BDSM community had a motto, it would be: “Safe, Sane, and Consensual.”

Do not forget this.
