I am so, so sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong area. It's my first post here, and I wasn't quite sure where to go. Please let me know if I should move the post, or delete it outright. I'm incredibly, incredibly new to all of this. I've only recently started thinking I even MIGHT be interested in this lifestyle. Because I'm not quite sure what my own feelings about BDSM are, I've decided to do some reading before I mention it to my (very, very vanilla) 5 year fiance. Thus, I bought a kindle in order to download some reading on the topic fairly innocuously. I'm definitely submissive, and was hoping to find some reading that would really let me analyze how I feel, find some fantasy ideas and (possibly?) some erotica that may be up my alley. I've looked around amazon a bit, but most of what pops up isn't really what I'm looking for. Unfortunately, because I'm in higher education (currently in grad school) and was an English major, I'm a lot snootier with my books than I have any real right to be, and a lot of what I'm finding is... not exactly well written. Anyhow, I know, long post for a really short question: TL;DR version: I'm looking for well written books about the lifestyle, BDSM in general, submissives, and (possibly) erotica. Thank you all so, so much for your time and any recommendations.
