Sometimes funny, frequently thoughtful, always useful. This is a collection of 52 weekly articles on BDSM penned by Peter Masters. They revolve around the practice and understanding of dominance.

Being an effective dominant or master, and especially being a good BDSM partner, is rarely about just having skills with rope or an amazing collection of floggers. Often it’s more about having a good grasp of the bigger picture, of seeing what’s going on beyond the oohs and aahs in a dungeon.

Being a master is about knowing yourself, your submissive or slave and the direction you want to take the relationship. The articles here explore a wide range of aspects of BDSM and BDSM relationships from many different angles. They include sadism, enslavement, communication, submission, protocols, service and many, many more. The articles are designed to give you an expansive view of BDSM relationships.

The goal is, of course, to help you be a better dominant or master.
