Harry, Priss, and Rhoda have a brilliant idea. They’re going to write the best “bad” novel and they’ll each contribute one third of the story. But what to write about? How about their unusual arrangement? And so this tale of steamy liaisons begins, as Harry and his wife, Priss, welcome randy divorcé Rhoda into their lives - and their bedroom. The three adventurers embark on an erotic journey that will prove that three is a very pleasure-filled crowd.
Andrea Kleinman is getting married, and her life is going to change. It has to, because for Mrs. Benstock to be perfect, she’s going to have to forget all about Miss Kleinman - the wild young girl who rushed straight from Bryn Mawr to the West Village, where easy love and free-flowing liquor sent her on a downward spiral, and life became so bleak that she was left with a choice between death and a return to Buffalo, a return to her parents, a return to normal life.
Carla is a beautiful girl. She was plucked from the obscurity of a Polish slum to be the wife of a wealthy man - a man who seemingly gives her everything a wife could want. Except the one thing that she needs most: the pleasure she burns for while he snores beside her, the passion that only a lover can give. But adultery seems impossible until, suddenly, it happens. When she seduces a filling-station attendant, ruining her clothes in the grease of a mechanic’s floor, she starts to spin out of control.
