Dr. Rubel, an educational sociologist and researcher by training, is the editor of the Power Exchange Books’ Resource Series, a collection of focused books on a wide range of topics related to the world of kink.

Immediately after college he taught high school English in South-Central Los Angeles for three years. Returning to graduate school, he earned an EdM (Boston University) and PhD (University of Wisconsin) in the area of crime prevention in public schools. After serving a stint as a Visiting Fellow at the U.S. Department of Justice, he formed a 501(c)(3) that specialized in crime prevention in public schools. He ran that firm for 17 years. During part of that period, he also was a founding member of the American Association of Woodturners, which he also ran for its first three years of existence.

Robert has extensive management experience with non-profit associations, formerly holding national certification as a Certified Association Executive through the American Society of Association Executives. He is a heavily published author and has served as founder and managing editor of two national quarterlies, one for school police/security directors, and one for his beloved art-form of woodturning. He is an avid dancer, specializing in West Coast Swing and most countrywestern dance forms.

In his mid-40s, Bob decided to change careers utterly and joined a stock brokerage and future brokerage firm in Washington, D.C. Within six months, he was made a Principal of the futures brokerage side of the firm, and five months later was named CEO. He ran the company for the next four years. Upon the request of a close friend, Dr. Rubel returned to Austin to help this person start a new company. He worked as the corporate operations officer for five years, and then retired to pursue his passion as an erotic and fetish art photographer and writer.

Robert (Bob) Rubel has been involved in the world of alternative sexuality for a number of years, throwing himself into the literature of the field as though it were an academic study. He frequently attends weekend conferences in this field, where he is a presenter (generally on topics related to Master/slave relations, Leather protocols, advanced sexual techniques, and fire play).

Master/slave Relations: Handbook of Theory and Practice
by Robert J. Rubel, PhDl, PhD
Price: $19.95
Paperback
ISBN: 978-1-887895-63-7

This book is for Masters. This book is for established Masters who are curious about what someone could possibly write on the subject they know so well. This book is also for those relatively new to the BDSM Lifestyle who are finding themselves called to Mastery.
     In many ways, this is a companion book to my book on Master/slave protocols; this book covers the more general topic of Master/slave relations – how they often evolve and how to avoid some problems that can crop up in the early stages. We review ways that Master/slave (M/s) relationships differ from Dominant/submissive (D/s) or Top/bottom relationships, we discuss contracts and collars, and consider various ways of finding a slave and starting such a relationship. After considering what each person can bring to a relationship to help make it work, we suggest some tips for negotiating the relationship and provide examples of contracts. We discuss the care and feeding of the M/s relationship once it’s underway, including how to keep an M/s relationship working and some suggestions about working on them if they start to falter.

Master/slave Relations: Solutions 402 - Living in Harmony
by Robert Rubel, PhD Price: $19.95
Paperback: 184 pages
ISBN: 978-1-887895-56-9

It’s easier to live in harmony when you know yourself and the person you’re living with. Not “know” as in, “Why, hi, I’m Bob, glad to know you, want to live with me?” But more like “know” as in you’ve spent quality time and effort to figure out how you and your partner think (process information) and react to a wide range of (often unobvious) challenges.
     Most of this book offers things to think/talk about that may not have occurred to you. That’s because we’re usually blind to the ways we’ve been brought up; we don’t often think about how we think and we don’t often challenge our own beliefs. Friction arises from these areas of invisibility. Once the veil is lifted, and once you realize how you’ve been controlled and influenced by your personal upbringing, you’re in the enviable position of being empowered to choose to stay that way or to change. All change will affect your relationship. These changes, themselves, may well improve your relationship(s) to the point that more heavy-duty “problem-solving” techniques are unneeded.
     In my view, it’s so important for you try on.  In my view, it’s so important for you try on your new self (and your new understanding of your partner) that the serious discussion of actual issue-solving strategies doesn’t even begin until Chapter Seven; if your concerns and upsets hang on to you through Chapter Six, we throw the kitchen sink at them in the final two chapters.
