"Life, Leather and the Pursuit of Happiness" is the first book by award-winning leather columnist Steve Lenius, whose "Leather Life" column has appeared in the pages of "Lavender" Magazine since 1995. Now he's chosen selections from fifteen years of Leather Life columns and other writings, newly updated and annotated, to create this book: a humorous, touching, revealing and enlightening tour through the alternative sexual and social worlds of contemporary leather, BDSM, fetish and kink. Read "Life, Leather and the Pursuit of Happiness" and discover: --A recipe for a leather vest --What's your LPT (leather personality type)? --The hankie code (in poetic form) --International Mr. Leather and International Ms Leather: A handy comparison chart --Are your sex toys hazardous to your health? --An open letter to Senator Larry Craig --Christian BDSM (Christian? Yes. Vanilla? Not necessarily.) --The feng shui of leather . . . and much, much more.
