  • Playing Well With Others


While there are plenty of other books out there that explain how to give a spanking or tie a half-hitch, Playing Well With Others is the first book that explains kink *culture* -- the munches, parties, leather bars, conferences, workshops, fetish nights, exploratoriums and all the other gatherings of kinksters that turn BDSM and leather from a bedroom predilection to a lifestyle and a community.

You'll learn to:
  • Examine your own motivations, needs, wants and desires
  • Ease your way into established communities
  • Understand etiquette in different adventurous sex communities
  • Familiarize yourself with the many types of events available to you
  • Care for your relationships as you explore new territory
  • Negotiate for play and aftercare
  • Go back to the "world at large” without ruffling feathers
  • …and, of course, answer the all-important question: What do you wear?!

  • The team of Harrington and Williams offers 30-plus years of experience in diverse kink communities: top, bottom and switch; gay, bi and straight; female, male and trans; white and POC. Both former titleholders and international educators, they are an unbeatable pair of "sexual sherpas" with an inimitable voice and a great deal of wisdom. Playing Well With Others is an unprecedented and essential guidebook for anyone who wants to explore or understand the "community" aspect of the kink lifestyle.
