I'm interested in how Candito observes the power that accumulates to a person because of sex, and her wonder that this could be the case. Taste of Cherry seems primarily to be a chronicle of this realization, and then a marveling at its truth. I think, though, it gets caught in that place. It chooses to be a sexy book, focused on the many exotic ways that sex can be alluring, and powerful. I would like to see why that should matter to the speaker. What of her learning about this position makes her unique?
