I ran this a few weeks ago for people who plan ahead. I'm repeating it for those who don't schedule stuff that far in advance.
David Stein, my former partner, has spent the last year working on a book, Ask the Man Who Owns Him: The real lives of gay Masters and slaves. It features interviews with over a dozen couples (and a few polyamorous threesomes) from across the continent who have successfully integrated BDSM roles into their relationships.
I’ve read parts of it and I think he and the project's producer have done a great job conducting and distilling the interviews to see how these relationships -- each one different -- work for each couple or union. While it will appeal to only a select number within the larger gay and kink communities, I believe it will be an incredibly valuable contribution to this subculture.
For those of you in the San Francisco area, authors David Stein and David Schachter will be talking about their work and previewing the book at the Leathermen’s Discussion Group on Wednesday, May 20. More info here: http://www.sfldg.org/
I believe David will also have copies available of his erotic novel, Carried Away, if you haven't already read that. I often refer to it as "The Great American S/M Bondage Romance Novel." It's hot, and I love all the fetishistic detail of the sex scenes.
david stein co-founded New York’s Gay Male S/M Activists (GMSMA) in 1980. For that group’s statement of purpose, he coined the now ubiquitous slogan “safe, sane, and consensual.” He also co-founded New York’s gay chapter of Masters And slaves Together (MAsT). For six years he authored the “Bond+Aid” safety column for Bound & Gagged magazine. He is the author of a novel, Carried Away: An S/M Romance, and his writing has appeared in Drummer, DungeonMaster, International Leatherman, Mach, Powerplay, and in numerous anthologies.
David Schachter’s interest in publishing Ask the Man Who Owns Him is motivated by frustration with the dearth of descriptive literature and an over-abundance of prescriptive and fantasy material, which he believes leads novices to unrealistic expectations and a needlessly high rate of failure for Master/slave relationships.
