A must-have guide for couples, throuples and more who are interested in introducing kink into their sex lives, adding variety to their sexual routine, and finding new and exciting ways of keeping their sexual connection hot. Sloan explains kink and kink-adjacent concepts in ways that everyone can easily understand and helps guide the curious towards new forms of play they have wanted to know more about (and were afraid to ask).

What I love most about Kate and her eloquent writing is how she can take topics that are often intimidating for the ’mainstream’, and turn them into completely approachable advice, resources, and conversations. If you're considering expanding your sexual horizons in a healthy, open, communicative way, you'll really enjoy this book.
