Michael Makai

Biography

Michael Makai is the author of the Amazon best-seller, Domination & Submission: The BDSM Relationship Handbook, and The BDSM Coloring Book: An Activity Book for Kinksters with Crayons. Michael has been a lifestyle Dominant for 37 years, a behind-the-scenes mentor and educator on BDSM and D/s for decades, and has been active in dozens of fetish lifestyle organizations in Europe and the U.S. Michael believes that the key to understanding the lifestyle and the people in it is to be able to recognize the very distinct differences between BDSM, which is something you do, and D/s, which is a relationship dynamic.

He is a full-time author, public speaker, and BDSM educator who travels extensively for book signings and to present workshops and demonstrations on the BDSM lifestyle and techniques.

Michael is a combat veteran and a retired senior Army noncommissioned officer with over 20 years of active military service. He has worked as a marketing consultant, banker, freelance writer, magazine publisher, and internet broadband service provider. He is an incorrigible word-maker-upperer who enjoys skiing, traveling, playing Scrabble, and raising koi. He currently resides near Wichita Falls, Texas.

Smashwords Interview

What makes you an expert on BDSM relationships?
Frankly, I don’t consider myself an expert on this subject, any more than someone who has been married for thirty-five years is an expert on marriage. I do, however, think I may have some insights for those who may be seeking answers to some tough questions about the kinds of relationships that I’ve spent my entire adult life in.
Why did you write this book?
I've always been a little disappointed that most authors in the lifestyle focus so intently on the "whips and chains" aspects of the fetish culture, but rarely touch on how one is supposed to find happiness in this lifestyle and culture. Anyone can learn how to swing a flogger or tie someone up. Few people have mastered how to find a lifetime partner and find happiness in this, or any other lifestyle.
