Are there any books about the psychology of submission? Or even a textbook chapter that deals with the subject?


  • Michael Castleman says:

    Yes. I recommend:
    • SM 101: A Realistic Introduction by Jay Wiseman.
    • Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns: The Romance and Sexual Sorcery of Sadomasochism by Philip Miller and Molly Devon.
    • The New Bottoming Book by Janet Hardy and Dossie Easton, and companion volume, The New Topping Book, same authors.
    All available on Amazon. These and most other books are practical guides, more how-to than deep psychology, but they all discuss the emotional/psychological elements of power exchange in BDSM. I hope this helps.

    And if you’d like, I offer a low-cost article, A Loving Introduction to BDSM.
