On my way home last night I was listening to an audiobook as I drove, 69: Sultry Short Erotic Stories of Need and Desire.
I love collections of erotic short stories. They can be hit or miss though. I've been on-and-off listening to this particular anthology for a while, as sort of filler amongst other things.
It hadn't really clicked with me, until last night.
Two stories in it, one right after the other, caught my attention.
First was "His", by Charlotte Stein. It's about a powerful businessman, getting a spanking by his diminutive wife. Every little thing about it was perfect. The narrator's voice was spot on, and the story described not just the action but the feelings of the main character so very well.
Here's a clip from it. Sorry it can't be longer.
Then there was "Talk to the Hand" by Allison Wonderland. This one's the story of a deaf woman and her hearing lover, who is kinky. Actually, they both are. It's the story of how the main character comes out to her lover, who, spoiler, already knew. It's brilliant. The characters come alive as you listen. You just know them. (Valentalae in particular would love this one, with her love for deaf culture.)
Again, here's a clip from it, I wish could be longer.
These are both so artful. I'm grateful I own this book, and can listen to them over and over.
