Truly an affirming guide for any woman who wants to learn more about being a Domme, whether they're a novice or experienced Mistress. The book has three main parts: Becoming a Mistress, The Mistress In Action, and "The Five Archetypical Fantasies."
Mistress Lorelei's "instructions" are intelligent, well-thought out and easy to follow. This is a woman who is 'wicked' in a delightful way. In the first chapter, she explains the 'benefits' of becoming a Mistress, and in the next chapter explains some pitfalls you may encounter and how to avoid them. She also explains how to find a male submissive and maintaining your fantasy and reality in subsequent chapters.
Part two of the book explains how to establish and assert your dominance and also the "tools" you can use. The use of spanking, flogging, paddling and other techniques are covered here.
Part three covers the main Fem Domme fantasy types and covers them well and explains that you can take something from each fantasy type in the "scenes" you do. Even though I'm a male Dominant, I found some of her ideas useful for my own play.
I also recommend SM101 by Jay Wiseman and Screw the Roses, Send Me the Thorns by Philip Miller & Molly Devon as good introductory books, along with this book if your interest lies in female domination.
