The Forked Tongue –

Put it down and walk away.

This book is not comforting; it does not reassure. It does not teach anything a decent person needs to know. It is a book about BDSM, but it will teach you nothing about tying knots, swinging floggers or spanking. It does not comfort, it does not attempt to reach the vanilla public.
This book addresses control, it addresses change. The recreational uses of humiliation, conditioning, psychological torture, hypnotism and interrogation techniques are explored and laid bare, broken into usable steps and understandable, applicable concepts. It is a workshop of ruin, the tools necessary to cement lasting alteration and unforgettable experiences for those few who truly crave them.
“This is not a 101 or “BDSM for everyone”. Actually, this is not really for anyone.
Most of the things that are in this book I cannot sanction anyone doing to anyone else. Except, of course, that we do, and we will, and we want to. So here are tools to do them well, to do them ethically, and to enact your own, terrible sacraments. We seek to ascend, so we descend.
I called this book a mixed message, a perverse architecture, and so it is. The keystone of this edifice is inscribed with the heart of all these chapters, these words cut at cross-purpose:
“Here is something you should never do to anyone.
And here is exactly how to do it to someone you care about.”
– From The Forked Tongue, A handbook for treating people badly

    … i almost missed my train stop this morning because i didn’t want to stop reading, Sir. i am eagerly awaiting my lunch break, so i can get back to it. Thank you for taking the time and energy to put this together, as i know so many people who will truly appreciate your evil, Sir.

    i haven’t been able to successfully track down an e-mail address for you, but i would greatly appreciate it if you would contact me at mine, as there are some other things i would like to say too, Sir.

    Again, thank you for this book — 2 1/2 chapters in (and yes, having read the author’s notes and forward), i am evilly grinning non-stop with every word, Sir.
