It includes explanations of various aspects of the BDSM lifestyle, frequently illustrated by graphic and erotic scenes intended to arouse and inform the reader.At its core, the BDSM fetish can serve to define, or redefine, the flow of energy between the partners, one Dominant and the other submissive. Raising the simply carnal to the level of erotica, this exchange of power, this flow, offers a viable and exciting alternative way in which to view the dynamic between sexual partners and lovers. Any number of fetishes exist and many of them are mentioned and discussed in this book. The power of some of these fetishes is remarkable, forming integral parts of an individuals sexual identity, and even their ability to function. For others, they are aspects, deepening the intensity of ones carnality, but without so powerful a hold.Rising from the ashes of a shattered marriage, the protagonist finds the dynamics of being a Dominant empowering and healing, both sexually and emotionally . As he becomes more experienced in the practice of his dominance, his philosophy of domination grows to include the inflicting of pain and the providing of pleasure at high levels of intensity- reaching the point where the line between the two is erased, and only sensation remains.After several years of exploring the BDSM lifestyle as a Dom, he eventually meets a woman who simply cannot submit to him. Sensing something more than just another D/s relationship, he pursues Melinda despite the uneven chemistry between them. For her part, she encourages the pursuit, despite her own misgivings.After several false starts over the course of a couple of years, they decide to try and reverse the energy flow in order to try and save their relatonship, and he begins his exploration anew- this time as a submissive. The switch isnt easy but they both realize the rewards are worth the effort and they persevere. Both come to realize that a return to the bland, vanilla carnality they once accepted is no longer an option.The changes they both experience as he learns to trust his sexual and emotional well being to her, and she grows into her naturally dominant nature, are profound and pervasive. In addition to his increasing satisfaction in being dominated, he also discovers that he enjoys receiving pain as much as he once enjoyed inflicting it. Mistress Melinda, happily for both, discovers that her aggressive streak morphs quite smoothly into a sadistic streak, deepening the growing chemistry between the two.The switch refers to both the change in the direction of their energys flow, as well as the simple electric device it describes. It also is the fetishists term for someone with both dominant and submissive qualities.This story recounts the experiences of a man who finds himself suddenly alone in the middle of his life, battered and confused. A few years later and a world away from where he began, his journey places him in the arms and at the feet of the woman he loves, the Goddess Melinda.
