The Butcher The Baker The Candle Stickmaker~ Book Review

Oh, a great Read!
Suzanne  Portnoy

The intimate adventures of a woman who can't say no

In reading the first few chapter's I found myself relating to Suzanne,  we had many similarities in our lives.  But then, she divorced her husband with whom she cheated on and moved on to a lifestyle of swinging and playing.  I honestly can say that there were times that I envied the main character.  She is living out some of my fantasies. She has the guts to do, what I wish I could do.

This book is more of a sexual biography rather than an erotica book, the story is told in a manner of some ones memoir. It speaks to Suzanne loosing her virginity, her conquest during her college years and the sexual history with her husband.  It speaks to the disintegration of married sex and the lack of intimacy that I too, experience at times.  

Suzanne spends some of her afternoons at a "Health Club" with special relaxation rooms.  She plays on the internet dating sites and is relishing a lifestyle of non monogamy and is just out for the thrill of sex.  She is not looking for a mate, a husband, or a boyfriend.

Her adventures take her to swinging clubs, fetish clubs and wild orgies.  She has men before her dates and some of her dates last for days.  There are no strings attached.  No expectations of any thing more than sex. She does find herself in a live in situation that doesn't go as planned.  She also finds herself  being rejected and the pain that goes along with it. She becomes a tantric student and explores many aspects of  sex.

As I mentioned, at times I found myself jealous of her sexual freedom, her ability to stay disconnected, and her only objective was her pleasure.   

I would suggest this one, it is a great escape and I found myself wondering if I could do what she has done.
