Here are some books other than 50 Shades of Grey I recommend if you are looking to learn more about Kink:
Playing Well with Others: Your Field Guide to Discovering, Exploring and Navigating the Kink, Leather and BDSM Communities by Lee Harrington and Mollena Williams
The New Bottoming Book and The New Topping Book by Janet Hardy
And if you just want some kinky and sexy fiction to read, Jacqueline Carey’s Kusheline Trilogy and Laura Antoniou’s The Marketplace Trilogy are lots of fun!
