A classic exploration of niche kinks, sexual misfits and DIY fetish, now 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 handy guide to the erotic imagination. Versions of this map have been used in college 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.

Review:

Fun book! Deep down, everyone wants to be / look / behave like some other creature. DEVIANT DESIRES gives us a startling new look at a few of these variations. -- Fakir Musafar, Father of the Modern Primitive movement

Katharine Gates is the smartest/sexiest/bestest/freshest/coolest/funniest sex researcher in the universe. This book is brilliant, thoroughly entertaining, and super-outrageous. Finally someone has done something sexually-oriented that is truly original. I dare you to read it and not get turned on! -- Annie Sprinkle, Queen of Kink, artist, author, sex pioneer
