Interesting! Stupidly Funny!

What an interesting take on time traveling into futuristic life where men only exist and just thinking of the possibility of it and the fact how they are portrayed as pure idiots just blows my mind. The fact that it takes a woman to come into their future to show them how sex is one thought that just cracks me up. When I say Stupidly Funny I mean “Comical”, so stupid it was funny and I laughed out loud several times at the comments or questions asked.

This a quick and funny read, I found myself laughing out loud several times. Enter a world where women are nonexistent. When a woman suddenly pops in from the past, the men is stunned at first and then well *clears throat* you get the idea of what comes next, but what can you expect they have never laid eyes on a woman before. I recommend this for any who likes a quick hot m/f/m futuristic read.

Here is a quick tease

My inner geek was doing the happy dance reading this one -- a sci-fi erotic romance with a little humor thrown in.

When she volunteered to test the time-travel machine, Kate Connor expected to find a decimated planet inhabited by troll people in the year 3033. Instead when she “landed”, she found (among other things) two gorgeous men and a planet without women. Like all initial encounters, getting to know one another can be fraught with misunderstandings.

He’d heard that the past had been full of

I read a short story by this author and loved it. So I thought I'd check out her full length book, but at 67 pages this too is a short story. I have a few of her other e-books too.

This story was fantastic. Kate is the assistant to the inventor of a time machine who lets her go first. She finds herself in a room and the guy she meets has never seen a woman before. The next time she comes back she meets his companion. And they get to know each other with each visit. In the meantime, she tells her
Kate is hired by a researcher to time travel, and gets sent to a future which has no women and exceptionally hot men. The world-building didn't make a whole lot of sense, but this was a lot of silly fun, if you don't think about it too much. I don't think I've ever read a menage story before, but I would guess that this one, with its two innocent, eager heroes, has quite a different vibe than usual.
I really liked Steins Waiting in Vain, so when I was in the mood for a quick and steamy read, I remembered I wanted to read more by her. I've got a thing for romance with a sci-fi twist, so Past Pleasures caught my eye.

When Kate travels to the future she's expecting all kinds of horrors and disasters, but instead up she ends up with two men who have never seen a woman in their lives, because they went extinct in 2045. What follows is a series of encounters where the three explore all the cultura

I gained this book as a free-read on all romance and It will be a reread I think!

Kate travels to a future where Women no longer exist (As soon as I read this bit I knew I would love it). When she arrives she is in the room of the beautiful Aley. Before long she has to return to her own time but does return to Aley's room to meet him again along with his partner Tem. As they are in a time where no women exist the men gain pleasure by themselves, from each other or by some sort of virtual reality

So this was a new setup for me: woman is transported to the future as part of a scientific experiment. She encounters two beautiful men who don't know what she is because women have been extinct on earth for hundreds of years. Through a series of trips, she gets to know about them and their life and their relationship. Little by little, she starts to fall in love with them. Once sex is brought up, things get a little explosive. I think I loved how curious the men were and how they were fascinate ...more
I find it strange to classify this as erotica when it's comedy with erotic elements.

Kate is sent to the future by strange scientist guy. He's really not important. In the year 3033, the world has changed a lot. For instance, there are no women and everything is made of other things and all that mash up. Anyway, Kate meets Aley and Tem, companions who aren't really gay, they just haven't seen a women before. So somehow, the three begin this weird seduction/experiment type of relationship. Tem is

Came across a review of this book in GR and thought i'd give it a try.

I'm giving this a 3 star and no lesser because the story was actually a LOL-worthy entertaining piece of short story (i laughed out loud in many parts). The premise itself is very interesting - what if there are no more women in the future, just men....and a woman time traveled into the future to find out about "the future state of the earth" and comes across 2 very good-looking albeit curious but somehow not exactly homosexua
a mmf futuristic/sci-fi menage that's sooo hot! One thousand years into the future women don't exist and men procreate by being cloned. The heroine is from the past and goes into the future with a time machine. The h kinda got on my nerves a bit, but the Heroes (yum) MORE than made up for it! 3.5 stars

I had no real expectations of what this would be like going into the story, but what a cracker it turned out to be. Witty, hot fun from Charlotte Stein.
this had sweet sensuality, comedy, and a Sci-fi/futuristic twist. It was really short but I really enjoyed reading it.

Recommends it for: any erotica reader
This is a great read if you like your erotica futuristic and hothothot! :) Which I do - recommended read indeed.
While I liked the premise a lot, there was something in the execution that just didn't work perfectly for me.
A silly, but funny time travel book...a future where you are the only woman? Sweet!
Quick, fun & sexy romp in the future.
This is one of those books that's more about the sex than the plot. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's just the way it is. You can look at it this way: if you're looking for some steamy, fairly light reading, you've found it.

Kate pops into a barren, woman-less future and becomes enamoured of the two men she encounters there. She's drawn to their oddly innocent sexuality and the pleasure they find in her and in each other. It's funny that a book that is basically all about sex can give the
A quick and sexy romp from one of my favorite authors of this genre. It's not super special or even super sexy, but it does what it is supposed to, and Ms Stein always creates an interesting story around her kinks.

I love me some Charlotte Stein. She's lovely and hilarious and I've liked almost all of her books that I've read so far. But this one? It wasn't quite up to par...

But it is interesting *enough*. To my mind, it wasn't extraordinary, but the premise is intriguing, and the explanations were fun. "Boobles" still gets me every time.

I really love Charlotte Stein's erotica, and her humor and lovely bawdy language can be found in this novella, but it's uncharacteristically choppy, just a little too odd and ends too abruptly for me to recommend. But go buy something from her catalogue. Really, do it now. She's terrific.
completely underdeveloped plot. While this involves time travel and a future where women don't exist we never learn how that comes to be nor do we find out why the scientist wants to travel etc. There's some smut but that's about it.
~Lei ~  Reading Is An Adventure ~

A short time-travel mmf menage to a future where women are extinct. Kate meets Aley and Tem and enjoys sexy time with two guys who are pretty excited to see a woman.
I really hope Charlotte Stein does write a sequel to this. I loved it, it has a bit of everything...humour, erotica, paranormal romance and sci-fi. A real page turner!
Cyn Mistress Kitty
Very interesting short story where a woman time travels to the year 3033 where women are extinct and she teaches two hotties what sex is.
The first chapter was so ridiculous I didnt bother reading any further. Glad I got this as a freebie.
J.A. Canter
An adorable story. Entirely fun to read. When time-travel meets Stein Shenanigans ensue!
