Midori is an absolutely brilliant sex educator, and I can’t recommend her teachings highly enough. She is truly one of the most erotically gifted people I’ve ever come across (pun intended), and lucky for us, she’s willing to share all she knows and has experienced. Midori will inspire you to have a more pleasure filled and ecstatic life.

Midori is a cobra-like combination of fascinating beauty and deadly threat. In thinking, speaking and action--not to mention writing--she strikes out in unanticipated ways and never misses her mark. Cowards and fools may find her frightening or cold. Everyone else has to love her.
- Joseph W. Bean, author of Leathersex
Midori is a refreshing and needed voice to the alternative sexuality community- unashamed and joyful, funny and ironic, honest and pragmatic. And then, when you least expect it, she'll hit you upside the head with a stirring description of a fetish, a scene or sexual encounter, and you realize, she really loves this. She has a hard-on for all this stuff - the clothing, the rituals, the pleasures and the agonies. And like any lover, she knows the realistic limitations of the SM/leather/kink scene.
