On The Safe Edge

This book grew out of a project funded by the AIDS Committee of Toronto to produce educational material for leathermen. The authors expanded their target audience to include men and women of all orientations. Many community experts were consulted, a fact reflected in the book's authoritative comprehensiveness. The material is organized in a different way than in most introductory SM texts, reflecting its origins as a safety guide. The Mind section deals with fantasy, psychological safety, and spirituality. The Body section deals with anatomy (complete with antique medical drawings) and physiology. The Safety section is very comprehensive, with significant space devoted to sexually transmitted diseases and mind-altering substances. There is a useful appendix on group SM courtesy (missing in the couple-oriented books) and an extensive bibliography. This book is probably not the best introduction for someone just discovering SM, but would be an excellent companion volume to the more introductory texts, and a good reference manual to keep in one's dungeon or toybag.
