»BIZARRE - The Compendium« is a comprehensive reference work with a high aesthetic standard which uncovers the rich facets of fetishism and sadomasochism in a non-judgmental and objective forum.

Including buzzwords from A as in abartig (abnormal) to Z as in Zwangsjacke (strait jacket), a dictionary dominates the format and is supported by numerous illustrations revealing the details with a scientific eye and textbook clarity.

An appendix section, divided into three major parts, delivers information on the history in review, examples of presence in the media as well as statistical data. Additionally included is an overview of the legal situation and the psychological and scientific aspects. The conclusion is composed of insight into this decidedly different lifestyle, in which personal comments, lonely hearts ads and photographs can be found and experiences shared.
