"A dark, wild, powerful memoir about a young woman's transformation from college student to professional dominatrix

"While a college student at The New School, Melissa Febos spent four years working as a dominatrix in a midtown dungeon. In poetic, nuanced prose she charts how unchecked risk-taking eventually gave way to a course of self-destruction. But as she recounts crossing over the very boundaries that she set for her own safety, she never plays the victim. In fact, the glory of this memoir is Melissa's ability to illuminate the strange and powerful truths that she learned as she found her way out of a hell of her own making. Rest assured; the reader will emerge from the journey more or less unscathed.

I thought my boyfriend was a bit perverted and out there. After reading this book, I have come to realize he is perfectly normal and not twisted as all compared to the men in these books! wickedly entertaining
