Summary
In her memoir, Melissa Febos laid bare the intimate world of the professional dominatrix, turning an honest examination of her life into a lyrical study of power, desire, and fulfillment. She captures the intense bonds of love and the need for connection -- with family, lovers, and oneself.

As Febos tentatively reconnects, she sees how both these lineages manifest in her own life, marked by compulsion and an instinct for self-erasure. Meanwhile, she remains closely tied to the sea captain who raised her, his parenting ardent but intermittent as his work took him away for months at a time. Woven throughout is the story of a long-distance love affair with a woman, marked equally by worship and withdrawal. Febos captures their mutual abandonment to passion and obsession -- and the terror and exhilaration of losing herself in another
