Though everyone has heard of "one-handed reads", listening to a performance of erotica is even more convenient for libidinous fans of the genre. In this titillating collection of stories, a young man and his "best mate" - who also happens to be a bombshell - finally consummate their friendship, and a married couple rekindles their sexual lives in the wettest way possible. Three different actors narrate Vanilla Daydreams, giving variety to the stories, authored by five different writers famed for their erotica. Listeners become attached to each sultry English accent in turn as the narrators describe x-rated acts in the first person. One may want to tune into these exciting performances with headphones - or perhaps with a partner.
Who says vanilla sex can't be raunchy?
In "Best of Friends", a woman finally gets it on with the friend she's wanted for years, while "Eating Out" sees a man finally giving into temptation with one of his friends. "F*ck Date" is a raw story about a man having a no-strings fling, and "Gone Skiing" shows that it's easy to bring spice into a long-term relationship if you make an effort. Finally, in "Wet", a married couple get caught in the rain and decide to keep each other warm.
This collection of raunchy short stories are certainly of the vanilla flavour. The most engaging tales are those narrated by Timon, who adds a refreshing male voice to the usual sultry seduction of female voices found in erotic audiobooks.
As a starting point for Audible's selection of erotica, it wouldn't be a bad place to start, but for the more adventurous listener seeking something more stimulating, keep searching.
