Worth a listen

The stories told in this audiobook are different than other erotica I have read or to which I have listened. Not your typical Penthouse letters, which can get repetitive and predictable. While I did not find all of the stories erotic, they did keep my attention because they were well told and different.

Erotic Feast

Nourishment for the erotic imagination is hard to find. What commonly passes for the expression of sexuality is so narrow in its range--lacking for example women's voices--that instead of feeding the erotic imagination, it starves it. This collection, on the other hand, is a cornucopia. The stories portray a broad range of sexual expression with a richness and spice that made me dang horny.

The characters and story lines, by going beyond the usual confines (regarding, for instance, age, class, and heritage), sometimes tantalize and disturb, often titillate, and sometimes all of these at once. I loved letting my erotic mind wander to the places envisioned by each unique writer. By vsiting these places, safely in the imagination, land of infinite possibilities, I expanded my understanding of the erotic and of myself, and got an erotic feast that left me with the delicious taste of forbidden fruit.
