SlaveCraft dares to delve beneath the surface of D/s relationships and gives the reader an intimate and revealing view from a rare perspective - that of a slave. Guy Baldwin, author of "Ties That Bind" and a well-known psychotherapist, joins forces with a grateful slave to produce this gripping and personal account on the subject of consensual slavery.
The authors examine the psychology and spirituality behind the Master/slave dynamic, and the result is a book that is resourceful, thought provoking, and sexually charged. An introduction and afterword by famed BDSM writer and educator Patrick Califia, as well as additional material by Joseph W. Bean, adds to the intensity and wisdom of this deeply philosophical volume. Beautifully written and intriguing, SlaveCraft is sure to leave an impact.

"This book is unique, and brilliantly so, shedding new clarity upon an area of human sexuality considered murky or misguided by most… SlaveCraft delivers the unexpected impact of a spiritual treatise, so while there is much discussion of specific attitudes and behaviors, the sum of its contents presents depthfulness beyond the details. One need not be a devotee or even partially interested in the lifestyle of erotic servitude to be profoundly engaged by these writings." - Mark Thompson, editor Leatherfolk
