Book review: Twisted

Hi, pornies! How are you feeling today? I want you to take a moment and forget everything you know about BDSM, and learn about it and the beauty and magic in it with today's book. I read it this weekend and OMG I loved it! It reminded me, by the way, about David P. Wichman. I'm speaking about Twisted: Honest reflections of a kinky witch, by Ms Quin. Thanks to the author for the ARC!

Playful. Honest. Twisted. This extraordinary collection of poetry ventures into the taboo subject BDSM. Through poetry and short narratives, Ms Quin tells from personal experience and gives us a glimpse into the world of erotic role play, bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, and sadomasochism.

I'm always cautious with poetry because it is not my field and I don't usually review it, but a witch writing about sex, BDSM and magic? I'm in. Totally. And I'm so happy I said yes to this book because I devoured the first half in a sitting, took a break, and then swallowed the rest the next day.

There were several poems I liked, mostly those form the Babalon series, so evocative and metaphorical, while others, like Please, Never a Chore and Playtime that showed a different side of what sex and kink can mean for someone. Ms Quin made a beautiful exploration of passion, desire and lust, and also proves they can be a means of connection with your self, the divine and the energies around. Like, why meditating when you can have some solo fun, for a change?

The narrative/reflective parts after each poem made me feel a bit lost first. I didn't know what they were meant to be, but after reading two or three I got it: they are thoughts and ideas about the same topics, reflections, literally, about eroticism, sex, lust and desire that dig a bit deeper in the ideas behind the poems.

Twisted takes you into a sensual exploration of what you may or may not consider desireable and pleasant, makes you rethink about dominance and submission, and how both can be equally liberating and healing. In short: sexy, arousing, with a god dose of kink and spirituality, and a nice writing style. Ms Quin has a good hand, good ideas and the ability to express them without being graphic or vulgar. Me likes!
