"Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns is about enhancement of the human sexual experience through the use of restraints and disciplined applications of tactile sensations. It is a gentle and experienced guide taking the reader from the introduction of the principles of S/M to step-by-step instructions on how to apply and receive 'discipline'... Dominants and Submissives practicing within the guidelines of Philip Miller and Molly Devon in this book can find a safe and rewarding way to make reality of their fantasies." -Dr. Wm. Granzig, President, The American Board of Sexology
