The author did a good job with a controversial issue for some, the sexual desires of an ordained male, treating it in a fictional way and staying, pretty-much, on a surface level. She didn’t treat it in a trite way and, simultaneously, used it only as a fictional trope for those who find desire in pretend taboo scenarios. She managed to maintain that hard balancing act. As a result, the story was a good one. She used raw, earthy language and had the main character, the ordained male, struggle with his desire for sex with women and his view of love and sex. She makes very clear what is ok for ordained people to consider sexually. Also, no explicitly religious paraphernalia or writing s are used in this story.
It was nice that this seemed to be a story between two older adults and not an 18-year old, which is the age of most main characters in erotica., especially the female. The sex was hot, though it was hard to imagine Dave as a priest while hearing the sex, especially since his being a priest wasn’t a focus once the sex started. Dave was not the most likeable guy, but I also didn’t find him completely unlikeable. But some listeners might see Dave as just a manipulative S.O.B. and a sick man. But I think the author, appropriately, makes it a bit more complicated than that. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger.
The performance was ok, but the narrator spoke to quickly at times which detracted from the level of sexiness. Twice, the narrator repeated a small part of a sentence over again as though an error had been made or sort of like a skip in a record.
