Fetish




Fetish


I was asked once by a drunk in a pub

what do you like in a man?

(hoping I’d admire his cute bum I suppose)



hands and forearms I replied

I like smooth strong hands with little hair

a wide grasp

but gentle, delicate that can undo the first pearl button

but strong enough to be magic in bed:

flutter like a butterfly

grip like a champion

tidy like a surgeon

Great juxtapositions here, Isabel. Could be a man, but to me could also be a mother.

H'mmm - that's raised the temperature a little - and do you write romantic fiction, too? If not, you should:-)

yes, isabel! given your commentary on the heat where you are living, i say: give us a steamy romantic novel. what the heck. give the people what they want! and, needless to say, the rewards of capitalism will be yours....

(hmm: the expression "cold cash" not withstanding.)

cheers,
susan
