About the Author
A BDSM sex educator for more than a decade,Morpheous has taught workshops in such subjects as rope bondage, the aesthetics of bondage and fetish photography, and advanced and beginner BDSM. He has also taught skill-set specific workshops for professional doms and subs, served as the education director at Toronto’s Bound and Gagged dungeon, and written the hugely popularHow to Be Kinky, a beginner’s guide for all things fetish.
Morpheous regularly organizes conferences featuring top sex experts including Midori, Chanta Rose and Laura Antiou. These are 3-5 day long events that bring together participants from all over North America. He also performs his own edgy and artistic style of rope bondage at fetish events, galleries, and book launches and his photography has been exhibited in Toronto galleries, including Nuit Blanche, the city’s highly-regarded all-night art installation. His work can be seen at LordMorpheous.com.
Morpheous holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education and an Honors degree in Visual Art from the University of Western Ontario, as well as a degree in broadcasting from Fanshawe College. He identifies as a Dominant, and lives in downtown Toronto where he is much sought-after in more ways than one.
Morpheous always encourages discourse between partners and players to facilitate openness and understanding.

Although there are step-by-step guides - with pictures - for how to do bondage, or make sex toys with balloons (yes, balloons,) I was happy to see that the how-to also explains concepts that don't really follow step-by-step like negotiating, roles and poly/open relationships. There is a lot of insight in regards to taking your play further and not just out of the bedroom, but instead what we do exactly *as* play. Morpheous looks at expanding our knowledge of toys, moving towards more advanced sex toys to enhance and further our play. Even things I've never even thought of as toys are suggested!
Both the beginner *and* the experienced kinkster will find tremendous value in this book as it explores new topics and ideas that aren't overly common in the BDSM scene. Fear not, the book is certainly not completely text based as there are some seriously stimulating images driving you to keep reading.
Highly recommended and that said; I'm off to go play :)
There was a lot of advice presented in the book that I had already had heard before. For someone who has not dipped their mental toes in these new waters, it should be a great stepping stone to starting your own search into the things that make you go bump in the night.
I am glad to say that when I was reading How To Be Kinkier, I wasn't scanning the book like I usually do. I look for spacing/spelling/grammatical errors.Read more ›
In How to Be Kinkier, Morpheous takes the already-impressive array of kinky possibilities he addressed in his previous book and expands upon them considerably. This takes the form of everything from how to make proper use of the myriad new toys available to how to handle new social relationships within the kinky family, all with an authority which reveals that the author is putting his degree in education to good use (whether the subject is "shop" or "psychology".... ;) .
His expertise and experience in this area shows in even the merest sentence of his work. To use one brief example, he at one point states that if one's "pirate" fantasy scenes continually employ bondage as an element, one may wish to expand upon that area and thus open up countless new and innovative scene possibilities (after all, the "B" is where it is in "BDSM" for a reason....) This was mentioned so effortlessly as to seem almost casual, and yet it affected me personally as I recalled why I liked the 1942 pirate film The Black Swan so very much when I was 15: the scenes in which Maureen O'Hara is overpowered and tied up by Tyrone Power or other male cast members (fortunately I immediately recognized this fetish for what it was, as I was fortunate enough to have been a child at the tip of the tail end of the time when it was still acceptable to depict bondage often on mainstream television).Read more ›
