Deviant Desires:
A Tour of the Erotic Edge

By Katharine Gates


This book contains tempting descriptions, illicit photography, intriguing character studies, and genuinely useful tips–in case “vanilla folk” find themselves in any unusual roleplaying or kink-related scenarios. Self-described pervert Gates articulates these little-known fetishes with such skill that you may begin to reconsider your own proclivities…

Katharine Gates’ bestselling Deviant Desires: A Tour of the Erotic Edge—the classic exploration of niche kinks, sexual misfits, and DIY fetish—is now back, revised and updated!

Author Katharine Gates, curator of the year-long exhibition KINK at Museum of Sex, has added a new introduction, plus chapters on Cannibal Play ("Eat Me!"), Suburbs of the Foot Fetish, and more. The expanded book also includes a handy "kinkmap"–your guide to the erotic imagination (versions of this map have been used in university-level psychology textbooks).

Often imitated but never equaled, this book is required reading for those who understand rule #34 of the Internet: if it's out there, someone is getting off on it.

Katharine Gates is a free-range anthropologist, curator, and freelance writer based in New York's Hudson Valley. A graduate of Yale University, she was the founder of Gates of Heck, an artists' book publisher collaborating with Annie Sprinkle and Art Spiegelman, among others. Her articles have been published in The Village Voice and Raw Vision magazine.
