Sacred Kink Books

Part of building the Sacred Kink Second Edition involves building a book resource section of course! Find below my list of Sacred Kink books! I’d also love to hear your favorite books in the following topics that have helped you in your spiritual, energetic, and connected pursuit of kink (or found that kink helped you with those topics and found good information/reflection in what was written about). The topics are:Lovers2-ModelsSinnamonLoveAndDelanoNDistress-byLeeHarrington

  • Sex and Kink
  • Relationships (including D/s and polyamory)
  • Tantra and Sex Magic
  • Spirituality and Magic (if you have any that tie in from Islam, Christianity or Judaism, that would be fantastic

The following are books that *specifically* address Sacred Kink as a topic. If you know of others, please let me know with an email, tweet, reply, or any other tool you can reach me with:
