The Beauty
of
Surrender

Shibari, the Japanese art of erotic restraint, used for
centuries to create pleasure and beauty… Shibari is
a sensual and often meditative experience. A sexual
experience. And for some, it is necessary…

In two interweaving stories
,
The beauty of Surrender
explores the ancient Japanese art of erotic restraint, Shibari, as two couples find pleasure in the ropes. In “Serving the Master,” Desmond Hale discovers through the beautifully innocent Ava Gregory that the ultimate satisfaction comes from unbounded love. And in “Soothing the Beast,” the private art dealer and expert dominatrix Marina Marchant finds the most exquisite pleasure in releasing her heart to a man strong enough to submit to her.
