    Story
    "Not Sensuous just nasty"
    What disappointed you about Sensuous Magic?

    Sensuality I believe has to do with feelings this has more to do with gymnastics and friction.


    What could Patrick Califia have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There is little love more about sex acts.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    No emotion that is the problem.
