really liked it
Read in January, 1985

Erica Jong for teenagers. I read this when I was in high school. The woman who told me about periods and wet dreams now told me about...Flashing! Masturbating on someone's lawn! Fucking! Multiple partners!! Including one's in-law!!! And extramarital affairs! All in one book!

Tame for an adult, but it had some great imagery that stuck with me. The book begins with a masked man in a cape riding a motorcycle into Wifey's backyard, tossing up his cape, and...well, tossing off, leaving his "stuff" on her manicured lawn. During a sexual encounter, Wifey lays there and describes a " cock dancing inside me." She liked it. I also seem to recall her masturbating while she was in traffic and giving head to someone, but that could be another book.

I don't mean to make it sound like it's all about sex. Wifey is on a journey, and even though she picks up men and soaks up their boys on the way, she does ultimately make discoveries about herself and her choices in life. It's a quick read.
