From the Inside Flap:

The American South is a land of intrigue and mystery. To those who have never tasted her personally, a mention of the South often conjures Hollywood visions of debutante balls, hoop skirts, and a faint whiff of brimstone emanating from the pulpit. To the uninitiated, this is an anachronistic land where gentlemen and ladies live lives governed entirely by genteel manners and the Good Book.

Peel back the seersucker and organdy exterior, though, and you’ll find another world entirely. A world of public propriety, and private libertinism; where rectitude rules from Sunday to Friday, but sin rides on Saturday night.

Moral repression often breeds sexual creativity, and nowhere is that more true than in the South. Join Suzi Parker on a private journey to an eccentric side of sin where Southerners secretly (and not-so-secretly) defy sexual convention. In a region where towns often have more churches than liquor stores, you’ll encounter a host of unforgettable characters.

Enter the world of two Texas grandmothers who teach wives how to strip for their husbands. Go undercover and sneak into the secret world of Alabama’s thriving BDSM scene. And you’ll never ever forget Trigger, the Human Equine.

These are people who live, work, and worship in the South. Unbeknownst to you, your hotel desk clerk may also be an author of gay erotic tales. That nice couple from the PTA meetings may indeed be swingers. You just don’t know—until now.

Peer behind the magnolia blossoms and discover what makes Secret Dixie tick. This voyeur’s journey is not for the faint-of-heart or the prudish, but one thing is for sure—you’ll never look at the South the same way again.
