John Satisfy is an erotica author who specializes in fulfilling fantasies with words. His stories are written specifically with the woman’s perspective in mind, but are enjoyed by both genders. Often what starts out as a simple or straightforward scene morphs into something slightly unexpected which is where part of the fun lies. Sex should not be completely predictable, neither should erotica. While some of his works may play with BDSM themes, come across in a more playful manner.
After spending his younger years traveling and living through the United States, he is currently living in the Midwest with his new wife. In his free time he loves to bake, listen to music, and take photos, finding ways to express himself with food, song, and images.
This short story collection (and I mean short) has the theme of spanking. The stories are short, to the point, and very erotic. There's no plot or character development. This is stripped down, bare-bones erotica. John Satisfy draws you into the sheer, erotic delight of a couple enjoying a disciplining relationship.
The stories are written with a very unique style that I found to work very well. It's a mix of first and second person, and I think it'll make an exciting read for both men and women. In each story an unnamed man is disciplining an unnamed woman. The man's part is written in first person, making it very easy to become the man spanking the beautiful woman. The woman's part, on the other hand, is written in second person, and it makes you feel like you are the one being disciplined by the narrator.
Of the three stories, my favorite was 'Red, White, and You,' set on a boat during the a Fourth of July celebration. It's the longest, and has one of my favorite kinks: forced exhibitionism. The other two stories are pretty hot. 'Office Discipline' seems to be a boss dealing with a secretary, and the second story, 'Punishment for Being Lazy', is very short, but very hot.
My only complaint is the brevity. The three stories combined are about how long I like my erotica to be, with some character development and plot, and each left me wanting to read more about these characters, particularly 'Office Discipline'. I love an nice abusive of authority story. But I can't deny how effective John Satisfy's style is at sucking you in and making you feel like you're one of the characters. It's a stroke story, and completely unashamed about that.
This books is supposed to fulfil erotic fantasies with words, and claims to be written specifically with the woman's perspective in mind. I beg to differ.
The three shorts in this book are all told in first person, from the man's point of view as he's enjoying punishing his female partner. And while the scenes were mildly erotic, the vignettes all followed the same plot of dishing out a spanking. Conspicuous by it's absence, there was no sensuality or emotion from the characters, or in their actions.
With minimal dialogue, the language included most commonly used, crude, male references to the female body, and with all three stories taking a combined time of 25 minutes to read the repetition in the language and the actions of the characters really stood out.
I found this collection mildly titillating at best, repetitive and bland at worst. I bought this short collection after a Goodreads recommendation and to see if I would enjoy the author's other works. Although details supplied at the end of this book make me feel there may be more in his longer books, buying them isn't at the top of my priorities.
