It's another night in San Francisco, and Miranda (aka Randy, when she's not dressed like a boy) has hit the streets looking for trouble. She has an eye for gay men in leather, and most nights she's too much of a girl for them. But tonight she meets her match: Jack, who thinks she's hot no matter who she is. This is San Francisco's notorious SOMA of the 1990s - home to dark alleys, tastefully appointed dungeons, hotel penthouses, clubs where gender dissolves and reshapes. In this bygone sexual utopia, Randy/Miranda embraces desires beyond gender and orientation, beyond what she ever thought she could contain... A FIRECRACKER ALTERNATIVE BOOK AWARD WINNER FOR BEST FICTION!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a dominant woman who can control a man with just a look or a word? When the thoughts of being in control creep into your head, that sexy little smile starts to play over your lips, and you start to get some ideas that you want to try on your man. As women, we have all been there, but being women, many of us are unable to take hold of our control and dominate a man. The idea of being a dominatrix is often seen as a sexual and social taboo, and many women are afraid of what society would say, what our family and friends would think, and in general, we feel that it isn't the position of a woman to take the stance of power and control. Women are seen naturally as the weaker sex, the one to be protected by a man, and the man in the relationship is often seen to be in control, the leader, the strong and dominant one. Social norms often dictate how we feel about ourselves, and sometimes, it can hinder who we really are inside. Take heed, ladies. We are women. We are strong. We are powerful. We are fierce. We are romantic. We are dynamic. We are caring. We are fighters. We are lovers. We are women! This manual will give you an inside look on what being a Mistress is really all about and will give you insight on how to be a Mistress. Being a Mistress isn't all about leather outfits, stiletto heels, and a whip in your hand. It is a journey between you and your partner, where you are the leader, you are in control, and you have the final say. It is a path of adventure where you make the choices, you take charge, and where you can let all of your inhibitions go. It will give you insight into a new you, the one who has been trapped behind the social norms for far too long. Ladies, welcome your inner Mistress!

Our lives are full of small tensions, our closest relationships full of struggle: between woman and man, artist and customer, purist and commercialist, professional and client—and between the dominant and the submissive. In Dominatrix, Danielle Lindemann draws on extensive fieldwork and interviews with professional dominatrices in New York City and San Francisco to offer a sophisticated portrait of these unusual professionals, their work, and their clients. Prior research on sex work has focused primarily on prostitutes and most studies of BDSM absorb pro-domme/client relationships without exploring what makes them unique. Lindemann satisfies our curiosity about these paid encounters, shining a light on one of the most secretive and least understood of personal relationships and unthreading a heretofore unexamined patch of our social tapestry. Upending the idea that these erotic laborers engage in simple exchanges and revealing the therapeutic and analytic nature of their work, Lindemann makes a major contribution to cultural studies, anthropology, and queer studies with her analysis of how gender, power, sexuality, and hierarchy shape all of our social experiences.

Representations and coverage of S&M have become quite common nowadays, whether we see them in the fashion industry, commercials, the news, on television, film, the internet, and so on. But in the population at large and in the academic community, too, it is still persistently stigmatized. This marginalization, along with its ambivalently persecuted status, is a result, significantly, of a nineteenth century legacy. This legacy begins with Kraftt-Ebing’s designation of sadomasochism, along with gay and lesbian desire, as a perversion, and continues in the popular and expert (mis)understandings which prevail. More generally, most people today will recognize that all human relations are power relations. Yet most people will also deny this and mask these power relations by invoking all sorts of things, like romantic love, sentimental attachment, companionate marriage, friendship, peace, non-violence, harmony, and the list goes on, ad nauseam. Not that these do not exist in a sadomasochistic relation, but sadomasochists are unflinching in their recognition that all of these are also permeated by power relations. It is not only impossible to purge these relations of power but for sadomasochists it is also undesirable to do so. It is not only more honest to acknowledge the power that saturates these relations but also more instructive in the sense that S&M provides a context in which one learns to exercise power and to submit to it in a responsible way. Even in scholarly critical and theoretical discussions of S&M, the prevailing opinion is that the power exercised in sadomasochism is not “real.” It is of course not real in the sense that slavery and violence no longer has a legal status. But reality cannot of course be gauged or even approximated by its legal status alone. For most practitioners, it is hard to deny the reality of pain, of humiliation, of degradation, in the moment of its enactment. One can hardly deny the reality of bringing the whip down on someone’s back or of having it sear across one’s buttocks.

The notion of sexual sadism emerged from nineteenth-century alienist attempts to imagine the pleasure of the torturer or mass killer. This was a time in which sexuality was mapped to social progress, so that perversions were always related either to degeneration or decadence. These ideas were internalized in later Freudian views of the drives within the self, and of their repression under the demands of modern European civilization. Sadism was always presented as the barbarous past that lurked within each of us, ready to burst forth into murderous violence, crime, anti-Semitism, and finally genocide. This idea maintained its currency in European thought after the Second World War as Freudian-influenced accounts of the history of philosophy configured the Marquis de Sade as a kind of Kantian “superego” in a framework that viewed the Western Enlightenment as unraveled by its own inner demons. In this way, a straight line was imagined from the late eighteenth century to the Holocaust. These ideas have had an ongoing legacy in debates about sexual perversion, feminism, genocide representation, and historical memory of Nazism. However, recent genocide research has massively debunked assumptions that perpetrators of mass violence are especially sexually motivated in their cruelty. This book considers how the late twentieth-century imagination eroticized Nazism for its own ends, but also how it has been informed by nineteenth-century formulations of the idea of mass violence as a sexual problem.
