Content Warnings for Show Yourself To Me

I put a couple pages of content warnings for Show Yourself to Me in the book itself, at the front. Those are organized by topic. I thought it might be useful for readers to also put them on my website, this time organized by story and with a bit more specific detail.

Most of the stories in Show Yourself to Me include some kind of pain play and some pretty intense D/s dynamics. All include sex, and many of them include public sex. Most include orgasm control and rough body play (kicking and punching). Many include characters engaging in edge play of one sort or another. You can consider this a general warning for all these things for the entire collection.

Here is some specific additional information about content, to assist you in avoiding what you don’t want and/or seeking what you do, organized in the order that the stories appear in the collection.
