Catherine had many lovers throughout her life. But the act of sex was just physical and she needed more - a mental connection that transcended the ordinary girl-meets-boy storyline every fairytale teaches us to want. She began reading about being naked in public. Women left their experience feeling powerful, appreciated, and sexier than ever before.
The world of exhibitionism satisfied Catherine in a way that left her pushing the boundaries with each new encounter. One day, she decides to get body painted by a local art studio and have a night out at the symphony. A chance encounter with an old acquaintance leads to a public performance that leaves more than two customers satisfied.
Classically Exposed is an erotica story containing exhibitionist erotica.

I was gifted a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Sometimes I get a little ahead of myself and do not always read ‘in between the lines’. In this group that I am in on Goodreads, there are several independent authors and lots of up-and-coming narrators who have free copies of their books that they give out for getting honest reviews. I browse this section a bit and usually inquire about books that meet a certain criteria for me – relatively short and a somewhat interesting plot.
For this book, it is quite short and I did not read very far into the summary to realize what kind of book it was until after I had inquired. Suffice to say, I do not usually read this kind of book but I did promise the author that I would leave a review and I want to stick to that promise!
This is the first book of this genre that I have read (listened to) and I did enjoy it. I thought the main character was well developed and the author did a good job of being descriptive enough for us to get a picture of what was going on. I really enjoy short stories that fully contain a plot with a beginning and end and this story did not disappoint. I also enjoyed the teasing that went on in this story – it was well written.
I thought the narrator did a good job, especially with capturing the male voices. She reminded me of an American version of Clare Corbett from The Girl on the Train.
This is a new experience for me as this is the first audiobook I've listened to, so I have nothing to compare to, but my sister suggested I try it out as I love to read but don't always have time to just sit and enjoy a book. While I enjoyed the story, I actually found the narration a little off-putting at times, particularly the dialogue, and I think I prefer to 'hear' this in my own way from reading.
Catherine is so central to the story that actually pretty much all others are almost incidental. However, you get a real feeling for her character (and to a certain extent the accountant) and I liked her honesty and straightforwardness.
Undoubtedly the concert as this is such a hot scene and I could totally picture it in my head - possibly aided by there being no dialogue!
Will you dare to bare
Perhaps this wasn't the best choice for me to experiment with audiobooks and maybe I will try something else in another genre. For me, reading is quite a personal experience and I found the vocal style somewhat distracting from the story, which I can imagine if I actually read for myself, would be pretty amazing.
Unique story that was highly appealing and engaging. Catherine has a strong presence starting from the first word I listened to the last one. The narrator has been able to deliver beyond expectations has multiplied the interest and engagement many folds. Catherine is at her best when she acquires the motivation to be naked and is filled with this unique power, confidence, happiness and satisfaction. I found the climax highly tempting and fulfilling as a listener. I think the story ends more on an inspirational note. Great job!
This was the first of its type that I have listened to.
My engagement and enjoyment has been multiplied by what Audrey Lusk has contributed.
I must say it was a beautiful, clear and highly effective voice. A plain reading would never bring this feeling of real character in the story. The narration takes us very close to the characters, a fulfilling conversation.
Yes, I finished the book in one go. I actually kept waiting to reach to end of the story to acquire everything about it.
Great story and beautiful narration ! The This was actually a very tough job to bring out the erotica out of this story with the limited characters and options of only self pleasure by a woman. Tremendous job!
Catherine is a young women with unexplored sexuality and she developed a thing for exibitionism. After fantasizing about it, she finally decides to do something about it and goes naked in public (but body painted). There she meets an old acquaintance and the duo makes a public performance that no one will ever forget.
I enjoyed every second of this erotica short story. It is very well put together and narration is also very sensual, crystal clear and understandable (which was very important for me because I am not a native English speaker). I enjoyed the characters very much because they actually felt interesting and three dimensional (contrary to most erotica books). Also the audiobook is written in a way that seems believable, so much, that during the hot spots, I felt like a spectator.
You will need a fan and a bottle of cold water to cool you off, after listening to this exhibitionist erotica. I LOVED this audiobook and highly recommend it.
The three words would amazing, hot, and sexy. I guess I am thinking of Catherine here, but anyway, the book is about her and these words best describe her, for me.
I like that it was narrated. I love reading but hearing a story read with some emotions and variations of tone and quality has been so appealing to me. It feels like I was watching the story in real life. I also love Catherine's character, her boldness and her unafraid ways of dealing with life.
I love the way she had narrated the story. Her tone is amazing, full of emotions and life. The story became more interesting because of her. I felt hooked from the start till the finish.
"Look at me and love me!"
This is my first time to try Audible and my experience has been great. This won't definitely be the last!
It was my first audio book & a different story totally. It took me some time to get really into the story, but once done, I was completely into it. I feel this was a great addition to erotica, it involves feelings, and yes it does. At one stage I mistook Catherine for an unsatisfied character, but it was actual the completion of a critical missing part in her sex life. It is interesting to see the connection of the exhibitionist with the person in front, especially with the accountant. I also think it brings out that thin line between the self-pleasure and total pleasure or a compete satisfaction. The story ends interestingly felt like an adventure.
Catherine. She pulls the story stand alone in a great way. She is expressive and represents another kind of satisfaction which can be termed as complete perhaps
Audrey has done a fantastic job here. Fully successful in bringing the story to the life.
Of course, I did it in one go.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
** This short audiobook is meant for Adults Only! Listeners should be 18 or older.
Catherine has dated and bedded her fair share of men but she has grown bored of what some people call "vanilla sex."
In her job as a paralegal she must present a professional front, but inside she harbors a desire for excitement.
She begins to search for what will fulfill her sexually. She researches various fetishes that do not appeal to her until finally she comes across forums and blogs that pertain to the fetish of exhibitionism.
She is excited to give it a try and the first time she exposes herself she realizes that she has found her niche.
Now she is continually upping the stakes in search of the ultimate exhibitionist display. That display will leave her "Classically Exposed."
Lexi Lauderdale's writing of this novella comes across more as self-empowerment than as smut. This is not just about sex. It is about a woman exploring exactly what she needs to experience to feel fulfilled.
The narrator, Audrey Lusk has a voice that is perfect for erotic fiction and more importantly, she does not overact.
I rate this audiobook as 4 out of 5 stars. ⭐⭐⭐⭐
This was my first audio book. And it was great! The story itself is working on a number of different levels. Very sexy, hot & steamy sex scenes, every last one. Lexi seems particularly adept at "getting into the heads" of her characters, evoking very real, likeable and interesting protagonists. Her humor is also subtle and fresh, and her pacing and narrative style compelling. Overall, I thought the sex scenes were hot. The resolution was handled smoothly. And I got a real feel for the characters and their inner turmoils.
I would recommend this audio book if you were looking for some erotica with a bit drama in it.
