Because little black handcuffs go with everything!

In The Posh Girl’s Guide to Play, former dominatrix Alexis Lass leads you into the romantic and wildly glamorous world of dominance, submission, and sexual fantasy. 

Blending hot how-to’s with sexy his-and-her stories, Lass—with a little help from her lover, Mr. H—offers down-to-earth advice on everything from dirty talk to spanking to sensory deprivation. She discloses how to tap into your deepest desires to enjoy the power and delight of role play—all while feeling safe and sensual—and shares her insight on the psychological aspect of this kind of intimacy, including: Establishing trust between partners, The yoga-like benefits of submission, building erotic tension, and advancing the play (for the adventurous). 

Bold and sexy, tantalizing and intelligent, The Posh Girl’s Guide to Play is the perfect beginner’s guide to add a little spice to your sex life and go from "no way” to "let’s play!”
