Raunchy, campy and fun, DIARY OF A DOMINATRIX is the perfect holiday gift
for fans of John Waters and May West. In fact, if you teared up during
Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and particularly if you own the soundtrack
you should buy a copy of DIARY for yourself, too. If you like cowgirls and
road trips and if you know the pain and humiliation of squeezing yourself
into vinyl pants, buy two, because Zelda Zonk, out titular Dominatrix, is
your kind of gal.
And anyway, you'll need two as you're going to want to cut out the paper
dolls and glue them to magnets for your refrigerator, because honey, da
Vinci's David is getting old and your magnetic poetry is not nearly as deep
as you think. That's right - paper dolls! Part narrative, part dirty picture
book, part tongue-in-cheek how-to manual, Zelda's DIARY is a veritable
ACTIVITY BOOK OF NAUGHTY NAUGHTY GOOD TIMES! Don't miss Zelda's S/M-oriented
guide to shopping at your local rural farm co-op: "They tend to stock the
more heavy duty items you'll need." Travel tips: Nevada Club in Ely, Nevada
"Highly recommended" Cowboy Fetish Guide! Ribbon Bondage and CBT How-To!
Circumcisions and Vasectomies for the Beginner! (Yes, it's really in there,
and No, of course you cannot really perform surgery safely at home.)
So, when you're making that holiday/birthday/cast party/retirement shopping
list, remember: there's something in DIARY OF A DOMINATRIX to make every
fashionable, good-natured, sex-positive pervert smile. And I think you'll
agree, especially during this joyous season, smiling perverts is a vision of
the future we can all embrace.
