I thought it might be nice to share some good reads with the FS community. Therefore, if you have a book (Kink/relationshp related) that you feel would be good for people to read list it here. I will start us off. Ethical Slut by Dossie Easton & Cathering Liszt The Ethical Slut discusses how to live an active life with multiple concurrent sexual relationships in a fair and honest way. Discussion topics include how to deal with the practical difficulties and opportunities in finding and keeping partners, maintaining relationships with others, and strategies for personal growth. It contains chapters discussing how consensual nonmonogamy is handled in different subcultures such as the gay and lesbian communities, information on handling scheduling, jealousy, communication, conflict in relationships, and etiquette for group sexual encounters. Note: I have been told to read this by a bunch of people that have read it and have yet to (it is on my to-do list). The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman (He has a bunch of similar books for different situations that I would recommend checking out) Unhappiness in marriage often has a simple root cause: we speak different love languages, believes Dr. Gary Chapman. While working as a marriage counselor for more than 30 years, he identified five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving Gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Touch. In a friendly, often humorous style, he unpacks each one. Some husbands or wives may crave focused attention; another needs regular praise. Gifts are highly important to one spouse, while another sees fixing a leaky faucet, ironing a shirt, or cooking a meal as filling their "love tank." Some partners might find physical touch makes them feel valued: holding hands, giving back rubs, and sexual contact. Chapman illustrates each love language with real-life examples from his counseling practice. How do you discover your spouse’s – and your own – love language? Chapman’s short questionnaires are one of several ways to find out. Each section of the journal corresponds with a chapter from the book, offering opportunities for deeper reflection on your marriage. 101 Sexy Dares by Laura Corn (She has other good books that are similar that I would recommend) It's easy. Just tear one of the Dares from this book, read it in private...and then do it with your lover. Each week, you'll re-create one of Laura Corn's famously hot seductions. Everything you need is inside these sealed pages. It's fun. You'll enjoy reading the Dares almost as much as you'll enjoy making them come to life. They're flirty and full of surprises, like the best date you ever had. It's really, really hot. Remember that feeling of unstoppable, sheet-scorching desire when you first fell for your mate? Get ready to feel it again -- 101 times in a row. It's fifty-fifty. Half of these Dares are written for women and half for men. (No peeking! You don't want to spoil your surprise.) Each of you gets to plan a delicious, erotically charged seduction for the other...and then enjoy the deep satisfaction of being seduced, week after week. What books would you suggest and why?
