Advance Reviews

Peter Tupper’s remarkably detailed work answers two key questions: Where does BDSM come from? And, even more importantly, What does it mean? Whatever your interest in kink is, A Lover’s Pinch deserves a prominent spot among your references.

A selective, surprising, and thoroughly enlightening journey through the cultural history of sadomasochism. Accessible yet sophisticated, A Lover’s Pinch will appeal to both general and academic readers alike.

In this wonderful history, Peter Tupper has collected an unprecedented amount of historical detail and context on BDSM practices. Clearly the result of both exhaustive research and up-close-and-personal experience with the modern BDSM community, A Lover’s Pinch is filled with stories I’ve never heard before. It’s an invaluable historical resource for sex researchers, experienced BDSMers, and newcomers alike.
