Peter Masters is five feet ten inches tall, and is not unique in that respect. He is the author of two well-reviewed books on sex and BDSM, namely Look Into My Eyes and The Control Book, and spends the majority of his time when away from the keyboard fending off the advances of horny and amorous women (he wishes). Since puberty he has been both an active explorer of the kinky side of life, and a passionate devotee of power and authority dynamics. For the last decade he has also been researching and writing about BDSM. He is an experienced trainer, runs workshops and classes on things straight and twisted, and for a number of years also ran a discussion group on dominance & submission. He lives in Sydney, Australia, rents a nice apartment near a fire-station, and is a devout heterosexual. Highly attractive young women with large assets should not hesitate to contact him via email. If not apparent so far, he also enjoys writing about himself in the third person for the "about the author" page of his work, and perhaps doesn't take it as seriously as some might wish. Peter Masters is also the author of: - Look Into My Eyes - how to use hypnosis to bring out the best in your sex life and - The Control Book

The actual mechanics of much of BDSM---otherwise known as S&M or leather---is well-documented in numerous how-to books, various movies, and numerous novels. It is often seen as kinky sex, and is commonly portrayed as involving skin-tight black leather clothing, chains, ropes, and nude or semi-nude participants writhing in delicious erotic ecstasy while being flogged or whipped by domineering "masters" and "mistresses". 
      And maybe this is what it is to many of the people involved. And, in fact, it doesn't really sound half bad. 
     But there's much more to it than this. In reality there are wants, needs, and hungers being explored and satisfied by BDSM participants which often they aren't even aware of themselves. 
     "This Curious Human Phenomenon" looks under the hood to find out what's really going on, at why people "do" BDSM, at what makes it so enticing, at what needs it meets, and at why these can't readily be met elsewhere. 
      This is not a how-to book. Instead, it is designed to be a bridge to understanding for people who want to take their BDSM to that mythical "next step".
