BOOKS: 50 Shades Of Laid


SenSexual: A Unique Anthology 2013 is a treasury of steamy, provocative, authentic works, bound to broaden the erotic literary experiences of the reader. Susana Mayer, PhD, delivers for the first time in print, the same mix of soul stirring, edgy, brazen writings, along with the authors’ illuminating backstories and her occasional revealing commentaries that have lead to raucous laughter, unabashed tears and occasional squirming at her long running Erotic Literary Salon in Philadelphia. Fifty authors have contributed tender memories of love, spirited sexplay and spicy communications to this exceptional two-volume anthology, transporting the reader through heart-pounding, seductive, occasionally kinky works to celebrate the diversity of sexual fascinations and desires. The generous selection of styles, intensity and scenarios can act as a catalyst for couples to share their erotic fantasies and explore their sexual expressions. Individuals will also have the opportunity to discover what turns them on verbally. You can check it out HERE.
