Bawdy Bedtime Stories-Joan Elizabeth Lloyd

Bawdy Bedtime Stories

ISBN: 9780425219447

These thirty-six petite short stories and two afterwards encourage readers to explore their sexual fantasies emphasizing role playing with their significant others. The tales are a few pages each with none over ten pages so serve more as entertaining guides and suggestions then erotica. In the Introduction Joan Elizabeth Lloyd explains that she wrote the anthology to foster communication between partners so that both can have their toes curled. Each entry promotes using one’s imagination while having sexual fun as the head is more important than the sex organs to obtain pleasure. Personal favorites included whimsical “Rewind Time”, “An Arrogant Ass Gets His” and the reminiscing (to me that is) “Nooner”. Whether one chooses to be a pirate, a cameraman and his subject, or that arrogant ass, these quickies are light fun to read. Now where did I leave that sex toy that ebbs and flows.
