As Kinky As You Wanna Be

"With the film release of "Fifty Shades of Grey," a lot of people are now interested in BDSM but they have no idea to do it. The book As Kinky As You Wanna Be: Your Guide to Safe, Sane and Smart BDSM by Shanna Germain is a great way to learn about how to do this stuff in safe way. Anyone that is new to the world of BDSM will want to check out this book"

“Shanna Germain is one of those rare authors in erotica who knows how to tell a good story and how to convey a scene of excitement and passion. Many writers can do one or the other. Some of them are able to do both. But there are few who are able to combine storytelling and passion with Shanna Germain's mastery of the craft.”
—Ashley Lister

"Shanna Germain's erotic work offers an emotional depth that one rarely sees in the genre, along with original, sometimes startling, premises and lush prose. Without question, she's one of my favorite authors."
