Decoding Your Kink is a roadmap to Sexual Authenticity
When I first discovered Galen Fous’ book, I thought, “Oh, another BDSM 101“, but I decided to read it anyway. I firmly believe that this old dog can learn new tricks. Additionally, I embrace the idea that we are, each of us, individuals with unique experiences and perspectives. In the least, the book should give me a new take on something under the vast umbrella of BDSM. The subtitle, Guide to Explore, Share, and Enjoy Your Wildest Sexual Desires, was enticing in and of itself. Who among us doesn’t have that goal in mind as we make our way through the Wonderful World of Kink? Who doesn’t desire sexual authenticity?
So, I purchased it. It surprised me. Pleasantly so.
Not your standard How-To
I thought that this book was a fundamental guide of how to navigate and negotiate BDSM, or kinky, play, sex and relationships. Instead, what I discovered was a guide to exploring my inner sexual creature. Page after page, Galen Fous lays out the struggles that many of us face when we seek sexual authenticity. I thought I had a pretty good idea of what my sexuality looks like. I have certainly given a lot of thought to my desires. But, there is still more that I can do to truly unlock the profane that resides within me. Yes, I said it. I want to embrace and nurture the profane. (Come on, are you really all that surprised?)
Roadmap to Sexual Authenticity
Between the black covers hides a guide to discovering sexual authenticity as a Fetishsexual. Galen describes the shame that social conditioning heaped upon us until we were no longer in touch with our true sexual nature. In The People of Kink’s interview podcasts, the conversation always started with the same question. “What is your earliest memory of kink?” This book confirms the answers that so many of those sharing their journey expressed. Their awareness started before puberty.
In addition to demonstrating that we have lost touch with our sexual creatures, Mr Fous provides the roadmap and compass to finding our way back to that beast within us. He then guides the reader through the process of discovering their own Personal Erotic Myth and provides Five Keys to unlocking the shackles that have imprisoned our primitive lust.
“Galen Fous is a visionary, providing a clear and courageous roadmap for anyone looking to undo the shackles of societally induced sexual shame and go on a journey to discover his or her own Personal Erotic Myth.” ~Dr Michael Aaron (Stereo-Typed listeners will remember him from Episode 8: Dancing with your Shadow)
