EXCERPTS FROM


CRIMINAL CONFESSIONS
FROM SUBURBIA

by Sally & Malcolm Barrett.

Originally titled WE LOVE S&M

 
     

CHAPTER HEADINGS of this highly personal autobiography each tell their own story.
Most of this text has been included in separate 'topic' pages because Sally's pithy comments on various subjects usually hit the nail on the head.

Rather than jumping ahead, review the contents list first. Links are provided to each separate text excerpt at the end of this page.

01 IN THE BEGINNING:
The personalities of the players/authors are set-up in this short chapter.

02
I KNOW WHAT I LIKE - BUT WHAT IS IT CALLED:
'Names of the games', as Sally and Malcolm discover, are sometimes confusing.

03 VOICES IN THE WILDERNESS:
Before the days of Internet, writing or answering magazine Contact Ads was an art as well as a gamble.

04 STRANGERS IN MY BED
The major topic of ROLE PLAY, which this energetic couple tackles very much on their own terms, has expanded into several pages on this site.

05 COMING OUT IN CROYDON
Problems turn into adventures when the couple first risk a trip to Amsterdam.

06 GROUP THERAPY
Situations many game-players will recognise are described as the couple attempt to share their enthusiasms with strangers.

07 HANDS ACROSS THE SEA
A trip to meet kinky pen-friends in New York in the Seventies is described in glowing detail.

08 NATURAL PROGRESSIONS
Learning to select-and-reject to suit yourself rather than follow the conventional route, is a sign of confidence in one's own instinctive preferences.

09 CALCULATED RISKS
A visit to San Francisco is the culmination of this very personal tale of sexual self-determination

10 MIND-FUCK
The climax of an extraordinary story, with the sexy Malcolm experiencing the sort of adventure which perhaps only San Francisco can provide

11 EVIL IS AS EVIL DOES
Sally's summing up of their experience, particularly bringing up children while having a satisfying kinky playing relationship in the face of dangerous prejudice.
