A frank and at times disturbing memoir of a Dominatrix. Not to be read by the squeamish or easily offended. Susan Winemaker may have trained as a chef but she finds her skills pay better when she is whipping slicing and flambé – ing her masochistic clients but the rules get changed when she starts to see them outside of the dungeon. Try our sample and see if you have the taste for it.

Synopsis

Concertina : The Life and Loves of a Dominatrix by Susan Winemaker

A memoir in three parts, Concertina spans five years of the author's life as she makes the extraordinary transition from culinary expert to professional dominatrix. Taking the reader into the secret, hidden world of suburban sado-masochism, Winemaker introduces us to a fascinating array of colourful characters, before she breaks the code of domination: falling in love with a client. The chemistry between the author and her lover - a high-powered City executive addicted to extreme physical sensation - becomes the catalyst for a deeper and more intimate exploration of their desires. As they take the games out of the dungeon and into their everyday lives, the consequences of their union make addictive reading, and we learn something about relationships taken to a level most of us never dare experience.
