Most people picture interrogation scenes as a bright light, a hard chair, and using yelling and torture to get a "secret" instead of a safe word. Yes, that can be fun. But if you really want to get into a sub's head--to yield a specific secret, a risky truth, or a signed confession--the effective process is actually much different. Tapping his degree in Communication (with an emphasis on POW interrogation), Danarama discusses and demonstrates a wide array of concepts and proven-effective questioning techniques--gathered from the AMF 34-52 (US Army), the Kubark (CIA), the Reid Technique (police) and the Stasi (former East German) interrogation manuals and personal accounts of POW and criminal interrogations. He offers ideas on how you can leverage these principles to prepare and execute your own BDSM-based interrogation scenes to create realistic (and often real) effects, and arm you with ways to get your sub to talk.
1. Interrogation objectives (what to ask for)
2. Interviewer/scene/space preparation
3. Why torture doesn't work (and other surprises)
4. Non-coercive interviewing techniques
5. Five ways to tell if a story is truthful or not
6. Coercive tactics
7. The 9-Step Reid Technique
In his 25 years as a lifestyle Dom, performer, and BDSM educator, Danarama's experience includes three years as Director of Kink.com's educational site, Kink University and has continued teaching BDSM and sex/intimacy classes online and at worldwide conferences. He is also a founding member of the Two Knotty Boys rope bondage instruction duo, co-teaching workshops since 1999, co-author of two best-selling rope bondage books, and rigger/director/performer in hundreds of fetish and instructional videos. Dan has also co-directed and performed as a Dominant for other websites including Sex and Submission, The Upper Floor, Dungeon Sex, and Sexually Broken.
