With great panties come great responsibility!
This collection of two books tells the story of two guys who run afoul of a group of girls at a comic and gaming convention. Their humiliation is thorough, public, and very complete, as the girls put them in a contest where the loser will be publicly exposed. They have no choice but to complete against each other in a series of increasingly humiliating tasks at the convention.
This 15,000 word story contains female domination, feminization, humiliation, bondage, and some forced bi against the backdrop of a comic convention.
I've listened to another book of the authors and it was just as funny. The topic was relevant to what I see at cons and the way the author tailored the story is very much her style. If you are looking for a good laugh. I definitely recommend

What aspect of Marami Hung’s performance would you have changed?
It is hard to separate the quality of the voice actor from the words being said. But, as a positive, different voice styles are used not just for different characters, but also for the same character when putting on an act within the story.
The emotions portrayed seem to match those which are conveyed by the words. But when those emotions are best described as alternating frothing anger and condescension, it is hard to say the experience of listening to it was enjoyable.
Any additional comments?
On reading the other reviews I am forced to assume they listened to a completely different book than the one I had. One review refers to all the characters being treated with humanity, despite one being introduced as unkempt with body odor and the portrayal does not improve. This is especially important to note, as this book is located in the erotica section. If sloppy, pot-bellied men with body odor don't appeal to you, you might want to give this one a pass.
Similarly, a comment saying there was no preaching caught me by surprise as the first 5 minutes could be best described as a screed. It is vaguely tied into the plot, as it give a semblance of motivation for the protagonists, but comes off more as an author's mouthpiece speaking.
But the main problem is with the protagonists themselves. They flippantly and on the spur of the moment, come up with a plan to get revenge on some online trolls. You might think that this revenge is clever and subtle and might escalate later, but it starts with a kidnapping by physical force and then quickly moves on to hacking and a little torture. They then use blackmail to keep the trolls under control, but the blackmail material was obtained as part of the kidnapping.
That is literally the plot. Control is maintained by the threat that if they don't do as told, they will be embarrassed by the protagonists releasing evidence they they (the protagonists, not the victims) have committed multiple felonies. I don't know what bothers me more, the plot hole nature of that or the fact that these are our heroes.
After that, things soften a bit and look for like what you would expect from such a story, but by that point we're a half hour into a 1.5 hour story. And even then, everything that happened so far still casts its shadow; none of the previous actions are explained further or excused in any way.
I leave this review as a warning. If this is the kind of thing you are looking for, then maybe I have convinced you to buy it, but I don't want anyone else caught off guard as I was. Seldom do you see a work of fiction where none of the characters can be described as basically decent people.
I just finished listening to "The Complete Convention Feminization" I wish I had more time to write... this is the 3rd combination of these 3 I have purchased in the last couple weeks; they are so much more than porn! The three of them seem to be all on the same page, and I find my self feeling better about myself when I finish, as opposed to my usual guilt & disgust. I suspect that Kylie is traveling the same long therapy trail that I am, and is using his writing as a tool. This is not to say that there are no erections causing scenes in here; there are plenty, and there is NO PREACHING, but I come out feeling better. And I am totally in love with Marami Hung's voices.

While meant to highlight an important issue that still plagues geek culture, it also manages to remain self-aware and lighthearted without going overboard into absurdity. The story is as basic as it comes, wasting no time in highlighting the crux of the plot and justifying the characters' actions through the women involved. All the action happens through the group of ladies who give two cis males a taste of hilarious humiliation, but does so in a way that doesn't fail to humanize all who are involved. You almost never forget that the story is meant to show the reality of "male privilege" and give women a platform to playfully ask "what if we could get away with half the shit men do and say to us?"
Marami's performance is fun and engaging, with that undercurrent of sensuality that she does oh so effortlessly. A far cry from the heavy erotica she's done in the past, she does seem a bit outside of her element, but her clear voice and effort to make character distinctions continues to make her a joy to listen to no matter what she's reading.
Basically, if you're looking for a quick romp into geek culture from a woman's perspective of "getting even", give this a listen. You may be surprised with where your thoughts end up.
