X: Tie Me, Whip Me, Love Me by Xathaniel Mike is a book for adults who want to experience different flavors of physical pleasures and how a person can attain them. The story of our protagonist Xathaniel recounts his sexual awakening and how he experienced the epic pleasures of his life when he was 20 years old and living in Venezuela to further his studies in math. He was obsessed with being the best and that quality applied everywhere else in his life. He wasn’t much into dominance play until he met a woman and she changed everything. He realized there is a lot more pleasure to gain when you have control and someone gives you the power over them. He could tease, entice, and push them over the edge and the lovely ladies would let him. There was trust involved and Xathanial never betrayed that. This is a book of pleasure and how liberating it can be if you let it.
Pleasure is a mind game. Our protagonist can very much be the author himself, which will explain the level of details you get about his sexual awakening and how he gained command over it. What I really liked about X: Tie Me, Whip Me, Love Me by Xathaniel Mike is how the author didn’t glorify the encounters as conquests. He shared these experiences and how they liberated him to make him feel more confident in his skin. And you can feel the change in him as the chapters progressed. He treats the women with respect, he isn’t using them as a toy, and they have a mutually enjoyable experience. I think this book is good for those who want to experience the painful side of pleasure and would like to read about it from a personal perspective before diving into it. They will enjoy the romantic aspects of the story as well as the pleasure-inducing aspects as well.
