You say "hardcore sado-masochism"
like it’s a bad thing.
Okay, call me jaded ("you're jaded!"), because I consider Afternoon Delight to be one of my milder collections. I mean, I fully agree with this review from Good Reads: This was a fairly fun and exciting collection of vanilla stories for the heterosexual couple. I especially liked the story by Alison Tyler, the editor.
So this recent one-star on Amazon left me baffled:
I expected this to be general, romantically erotic literature. Instead, it is full of hard core sado-masochism, bondage, and other extreme sexual practices as well as some over-the-top language. It's okay if that's what you want, if you and your partner are turned on by this kind of thing. Otherwise I believe that you (and most couples) will more likely find this book objectionable than erotic. Mine's going on eBay - cheap!
Well, damn. If Afternoon Delight is hardcore S&M, I wonder what the poor soul with think about Best Bondage Erotica!
