Today I finished a lovely little book: The Little Vanilla Book: S&M Wisdom to Improve Your Daily Life by Lux Alani
|Normally, picking up a book with ‘S&M’ and a corset on the cover seems quite racy, I assure you this one is more about the life wisdom than BDSM. Ms. Alani spent time as a professional dominatrix and draws on that experience and language to offer the reader some useful insights towards personal growth.
The author brakes down basic personal growth into bite-sized chunks. She takes weighty topics, such as confidence, authenticity, and courage and makes them accessible and easy to digest. Citing many amazing inspirational artists, she also includes a great bibliography and BDSM glossary for those who would like to know more.
Clearly aimed at women, she often reminds us that we are all Sacred Feminine Badasses! Because she uses her personal life experience, it doesn’t feel like she is telling us what “we should” be doing. Her tone is similar to your older cousin or babysitter who has done all the things! And, like many good tales, there are bonus stories along the way (even an after credits one).
Ok Goddess… Lace up, and rock it!
