Praise for The Way of the Pleasure Slave
The Way of the Pleasure Slave is a moving and detailed account from an author and master who has acquired his experience in a long-term relationship and through community involvement. This is an erotic, genuine, and well-written book about a style of intimacy that is often misrepresented. The author’s respect for those whose vocation is to serve as pleasure slaves is especially commendable.

What are the two trickiest and most nuanced aspects of kink? My vote goes to dominance/submission and sex. It takes as clear a thinker and elegant a stylist as Andrew James to bring those two much-desired behaviors into clear, deployable focus, with plenty of suggestions for action and conversation for anyone from the beginner to the advanced player. Highly recommended for anyone who’s ever dreamed of having, or being, a pleasure slave or submissive.
– Janet W. Hardy, author of The Sexually Dominant Woman and co-author of The Ethical Slut
As a teen, the Miss Abernathy books were where I learned that submissives could be useful, competent, and intelligent, rather than just passively obedient. They present a service relationship as a skilled trade. This new book presents a beautiful and thoughtful model of what, in my experience, is the most common type of consensual power-exchange relationship—a sexually and emotional intimate relationship with a feminine submissive.
