This is an important book that delves into the fascinating and misunderstood world of Female Domination. Written by a practising psychologist, this work provides crucial insights into the mentality and attitudes that drive this alternative lifestyle. The author arrives at several key conclusions of the origins, development and long-term practice of why and how significant numbers of men yearn then continue to worship a dominant woman, as well as what goes on within these special women themselves. She cites little known truths of Christianity whereby Female Domination is quite compatible with scripture, as well as identifying contemporary trigger points for men who wake up to their own deep stirrings of wanting to submit to a woman.
Her literary references to back up her opinion of women as the superior sex are ample and solid. But this is not a feminist diatribe. Elise Sutton is clearly influenced by a deep love for men and a desire to see them at their best. Indeed the sub-title of the book is `An exploration of the male desire for Loving Female Authority'. She makes it clear that a submissive male must not see himself as a wimp. The male has every right, duty even, to be strong in his affairs and strong for his Lady. The author eloquently and, yes, romantically states: `The man should be his Queen's friend, partner, lover, servant and slave. A woman needs all of this in a man'.
The author uses some 40 case studies to back up her work. Every major strand of the lifestyle is examined including role reversal, leather sex, cuckcolding, feminization, disciplining versus punishment, strap-on play, humiliation play, age regression, male chastity, and fetishes. The author emphasizes that Female Domination is a big tent: There are many practices that find a home here but there is no obligation to undertake all of them. This is a well thought out piece of work that will offer reassurance and direction to those who need help to work out their inner most thoughts and feelings. It will hopefully go on to be a gound breaking philosophy for revitalizing relationships between men and women, and offer a sound foundation for the rejuvenation of family life.
