Black Silk Blindfold

An erotic short story of 12,000 words or roughly 35 pages.

The story tells how I tried to seduce a young trainee lawyer in my office. It was very wrong of me. He’d recently split up with his girlfriend and was feeling a little low. He was not someone who could recover from a setback very easily. I felt sorry for him. He was gorgeous in a soft, boyish way. I fancied him like

I downloaded this book earlier today and finished reading a couple of hours later, so I guess that is quite impressive even for an avid reader like me, right :)?

But it is Ms Wu with whom I am totally and completely impressed. Sh'e got me by her excellent story-telling, her development of interesting characters, her exquisite use of the English language, the natural flow of her dialogues, her exploration of sexual fantasies, and ultimately her talent as an erotica writer. I have read some of her

Our unnamed narrator works for a prominent law firm, and she often finds herself flirting with the new associate Benedict Knowles. Fresh out of law school, and freshly dumped by his girlfriend, Benedict is the very definition of naïve. His innocence arouses our narrator tremendously; despite Benedict later rev

Another beautiful story from Ms. Wu. The dialogue is so good here that I found myself re-reading some passages for the sheer pleasure of it.

The story follows the theme also present in some other works by this author: the gentle exploration of female and male sexuality, discovery of the joy of sex, looking for self through reflecting on the chance encounters. At least this is how I understood it.

I loved everything about it - from the stylish photo on the cover to every single word chosen with suc

Sultry, sexy and smooth like a black silky blindfold!
I'm sad that this story was so short. I longed for more. The writing was erotic but tastefully and eloquently done. A skilled writer is one who can paint vivid images in your head with the perfect selection of words. I find Ms. Wu's writing to be elegant and refined. I look forward to reading more of her works. Please give me more of this story...maybe a Red silky blindfold ;)

I was born in Fuzhou, China and came to England by way of Russia, Ukraine, Hungary, Austria, Germany and Switzerland. I lost a boyfriend along the way and gained a very dear friend who is now my flatmate in London.

I work at a legal firm during the day but I usually start my morning very early, around 5 or 6, writing.

I have always loved English books and was lucky enough to be surrounded by them as
