and fetishism include a vast range of sexual practices, many not
commonly thought to be kinky. In DIFFERENT LOVING, we have
organized these activities into seven major sections and 26 chapters
and have conducted original research into the social history of
sexual dominance and submission. Each chapter presents the opinions
and theories of sexuality researchers, from Krafft-Ebing to Havelock
Ellis, Wilhelm Stekel to John Money and Robert Stoller, and takes
issue with traditional views of radical sexuality.
More importantly, the book allows D&Sers; to speak for themselves.
Over 300 D&Sers; participated in this study: roughly 90 interviews
appear in the text, supplemented by hundreds of citations from
books and articles by and about sadomasochists. Chapters thus
present as wide a range of opinion and erotic practices as possible:
interviewees self-identify as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual,
pansexual, top, bottom, sadist, masochist, dominant, submissive,
master, mistress, slave, fetishist, leatherman or leatherwoman,
and as just plain kinky.
