  • Mood:

Leather stuff (could possibly be TMI)




My leather interests keep bouncing around in my head, and I'm not really sure of what I want my next steps to be. The "afraid I won't like it" thing is back a little, despite my amazing SF experience. Bah. Shall have to find some way of confronting that.

One next step I'm taking is attacking this like I do lots other problems: get lots of book knowledge to build a framework on which to hang experiences. I had been planning on getting SM 101 by Jay Wiseman, but a good friend gave me a copy (yay!). Several portions are *exactly* what I've been needing, and the rest seems very good, but I find it so poorly organized. The behavioral/psychological stuff is scattered throughout the physical how-to chapters, and I often want to go back to things that I can't find again. Anyone have particular recommendations/warnings for a budding bottom/submissive, especially on mental/emotional stuff or general interaction? Greenery Press has a lot of nice looking titles...

Also, is it OK/good to read top/dominant-oriented stuff, or is that a bit like RPG players reading the DM manual before the adventure?
