That is NOT the book I ordered!

Sometime back in November I ordered a book, below left, through bookstore.org. A few days ago I received my order, below right.

I can only say WTF?!?!?

Allow me to show you some of the contents. Please excuse all children, teenagers, neighbors, parents, grandparents — pretty much anyone with eyes — from the room before you scroll down.

I repeat, WTF?!?!?!?

141 pages of this, sheesh! Oh, and the company that produced the book’s website is http://www.bdsm.com.tw. (Taiwan). Trying very hard here not to be judgemental, but I simply do not understand the book subject’s appeal.

Normally, I might donate a mis-shipped book to the library, but I am pretty sure they do not want this on their shelves. I contacted bookshop.org and received this reply:

Sorry about this shipping mishap. I’ve just reprocessed your order at no additional cost and forwarded the issue to our distributor for further instruction. You should receive a new tracking number soon.

I kinda think they should have apologized a bit more profusely, given the nature of the book I received, but oh well.

    Imagine the shock of the person who received your book, assuming the two were mis-shipped to the wrong person! So some fisherfolk who are land-tied for the winter want ways to practice their knots and roping skills!!?? Ha, ha! How uncomfortable, chaffing and painful I would imagine those myriad layers and levels of rope and knots would be on the skin. IMHO lovemaking should be tender and sweet, soft, slow, consentual, equal, responsive, pleasurable and gentle. Whatever this is in the book, it seems it would involve some level of domination, inequality, hardness, harshness and pain. Foreign indeed!

    “At no additional cost”? I should think so!

    Yeah, there probably should have been a higher level of ‘wow, oops’ in that email.
    On the other hand, my list of ‘Things I Didn’t Know Yesterday’ just got a little longer…

    I would have wanted a payment to me for pain and suffering.

  6. That is… a very confusing mix-up. I do not see how either one of those books could be confused for the other…

    The Japanese are very orderly and precise in their wrapping of presents. It’s good to know that that serious dedication to the art of presentation extends further. *ahem*
