Robert J (Dr. Bob) Rubel PhD

Dr. Bob, an author, educator and photographer is an educational sociologist and researcher by training.  Committed to writing and teaching, he has written three books on Master/slave topics, two books on BDSM mastery, one book on communication strategies, two books on advanced sex techniques, one book on fire play, and three erotic art photo books.  Additionally, he has produced two educational DVDs: one on fire play and one on beginning impact play. 

Recipient of the 2008 Pantheon of Leather's Community Choice Award (man), Dr. Bob has been involved in the BDSM and Total Power Exchange (TPE) scenes since the summer of 2001, throwing himself into the literature of the field as though it were an academic study.
