Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns will tell you all about sadomasochism. We made it light-hearted and fun to read because SM is fun to do. That's why we do it. But fun is only SM's overture; for those who grasp its message, SM is sexual magic. The right blend of trust, fantasy, and sensuality creates an intensely erotic and deeply intimate stew. We take away our lovers' freedom and lead them to profound liberty. We peer into the dark together, transforming it to light. In these pages you will find clear explanations for the curious, and solid advice, safety measures and steamy suggestions for the adventurous. Allow us to guide you through the captivating realms of sensuality, dreamed of by millions, realized by few, and understood by fewer still.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great book! I just finished reading this book recently. I have read a few books about sadomasochism, and this is one of my favorites. It is written in such a way that is it both amusing and informative, you do not feel like a freak while you read it! I highly recommend it for beginners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns A light-hearted, humorous yet highly informative primer for those interested in BDSM practices. Contains sample contracts and checklists, safety considerations for different styles of play (such as spanking, caning, rope bondage, etc.), instructions for some easily made "toys", pages of addresses for BDSM organisations and places for other sources of information, and tons more......a highly recommended book which is entertaining yet never condescending.
