Arthur Masters has been a Dom for as long as he can remember, although it was many years before he could identify what was living inside him. In his 'straight' life and under another name, he is an accomplished author, illustrator and musician. His autobiography Top Secrets is a frank and eminently readable account of his lifetime involvement with CP. It includes not only a great many intriguing details about Arthur, but also about CP and how it relates to and differs from the more widely documented world of BDSM.
In 2004 Arthur was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer and, while trying to come to terms with his condition, he decided that it was high time he came out. Top Secrets, published in 2006, was a direct result of this decision. Since then he has redoubled his efforts to share all he has learned and is still learning about the world of Dominance and submission.
